Carl DeMaio for Congress!! Donate and Volunteer.

Carl DeMaio for Congress!! Donate and Volunteer.

Carl DeMaio Announces for Congress

Dear Friend:

During the depths of World War 2, Winston Churchill said: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

In our battles over the years to save the City of San Diego from bankruptcy and implement our “Reform Agenda,” I often turned to Winston Churchill for inspiration.

With your help, we overcame so many obstacles and we can point to an impressive record of getting reforms done in San Diego.

I believe our work must continue.

Like you, I am concerned about the condition and course of government at all levels and the troubled state of our economy.

Like you, I’m not willing to let our country, state or cities fall further into disrepair without fighting to fix the problems.

That’s why I have decided to run for Congress – and I’d like you to be part of our campaign to offer bold reform ideas in an inclusive and fresh way.

My candidacy has already attracted national attention – with stories in Roll Call, the Wall Street Journal, and even the UK Guardian. Washington observers are pointing to our success in implementing major fiscal reforms here in San Diego.

All of this early national buzz is meaningless without strong local support – and that is why I am asking you to join my campaign from day one.

If you invest in this campaign today, you will help us advance four key changes to what’s happening in Washington.

Balance the Budget:
They said we couldn’t balance San Diego’s budget and avoid bankruptcy — but we did it! In San Diego, I released a 350-page “Roadmap to Recovery” budget plan – and got many of the reforms implemented on a bipartisan vote.

We desperately need some real budget expertise in Congress. As a budget expert, I will outline cost savings to help balance the federal budget and help produce a plan like the one we successfully used in San Diego.

I’m also looking forward to implementing national legislation to make it easier to achieve Pension Reform in state and local governments across the country. San Diego is already being cited as a national model, and we have incredible momentum to take our reforms national with federal legislation.

Make Government Work:
Americans are turned off by “the Party of No” and a “gut and cut” approach to governing. We must offer real and credible solutions to fix things and make government work again for the people.

Having built a company that specialized in implementing management reforms to improve the performance of government programs, I will offer solutions to fix long-troubled programs covering important areas such as veterans benefits, teacher performance incentives, and health care affordability.

In Congress, I’ll continue my well-known pattern of authoring detailed plans on pressing problems – and presenting those ideas in a direct and candid way. It worked in San Diego – it can work in Washington!

Revitalize the Economy:
From advancing real tax reform to cutting costly red tape, I will fight to promote investment, help small businesses, and expand job training programs.

Fix Congress First – Shake Up the Political Parties:
To impose accountability and transparency on the political process like we’ve never seen before, I will propose a law to force Congress to live under the same laws it expects the rest of us to live under.

Fixing Congress must also involve changing the tone and tenor of both political parties. I see myself as a ‘new generation Republican’ who wants to challenge the party to focus on fiscal, economic and quality of life issues in a more positive and inclusive way – rather than issues that are frankly none of the government’s business in the first place.

My candidacy and my eventual voice in Congress will offer an example of how we can refocus Washington’s attention on issues that unite, rather than issues that divide.

YOUR ROLE – Help Launch the “Reform Agenda” in Congress
I cannot advance these much-needed reforms alone. None of our successes in San Diego – from defeating the “Blank Check Tax Hike” in 2010 to passing Pension Reform in 2012 – could be done without the help of thousands of San Diegans like you.

To achieve our reform goals with this campaign for Congress, I need your help.

Please make a donation today – and please consider attending one of the events we have scheduled in June. You can donate and select an event simply by visiting our website at http://www.carldemaio.com

We’ve made bold reform happen before. With your help in this campaign, we’ll do it again.

Sincerely,

Carl DeMaio

P.S. We are under a time-crunch, as our first campaign report cut off is June 30. Even if it is only $10, can you show your support by donating right now?

County Supervisor Ron Roberts at our June 19th meeting at Diversionary Theatre

County Supervisor Ron Roberts at our June 19th meeting at Diversionary Theatre

Supervisor Ron Roberts represents the 626,000 residents of San Diego County’s multi-ethnic Fourth Supervisorial District.
A product of public schools, Supervisor Roberts worked his way through college as a supermarket clerk. After earning an undergraduate degree from San Diego State University, he went on to secure a master’s degree in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley. After Berkeley, Roberts embarked upon a 20-year career in architecture, spending much of that time as Managing Partner of a large San Diego-based firm with offices locally and in San Francisco. During that time Roberts also became involved in San Diego civic affairs, including serving on the Planning Commission from 1982 to 1987.
In 1987, Roberts left his practice to launch a campaign for a seat on the San Diego City Council. He was triumphant.
After serving two terms, from 1987 to 1994, Roberts was selected by voters in November 1994 to represent the Fourth District as one of five members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. When he took office in January 1995, the county was on the brink of bankruptcy. Today, with an annual budget of nearly $5 billion, San Diego County earns top financial rating marks from Fitch, Moody’s and Standard & Poors.
Roberts has had a long and supportive relationship with San Diego’s LGBT community. On the City Council he supported locating in his district one of the first HIV/AIDS treatment centers in San Diego. He was one of the first elected officials to march in the Pride Parade, supported an LGBT woman, Christine Kehoe, to replace him on the City Council, and has been a source of steady support for the community.
On the issue of air quality, perhaps no other San Diegan has done more to clean up our skies than Roberts. As a member of the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) board, Supervisor Roberts played a leading role in drafting comprehensive Green House Gas reduction measures that in 2011 were the first in California to receive state certification. As a member of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), Roberts has helped craft air-emission regulations that, along with local initiatives, have given urban San Diego its cleanest air in nearly six decades.
Roberts is a staunch advocate for business and the prudent use of taxpayer dollars. Under his leadership, the county in 2012 completed construction on a new operations center campus for 2,800 employees in Kearny Mesa. The overall project earned LEED Gold recognition and the Campus Center is due to receive LEED Platinum certification. The project provided thousands of construction jobs, was built primarily with cash and came in under budget.
Another project Roberts has championed that is now under construction is converting the asphalt parking lots surrounding the County Administration Center into a waterfront park.
Roberts and his wife live in the Mission Hills home they built in 1971 and where they raised their three daughters, all of whom are now successful professionals. The couple has three grandchildren.
