San Diego, CA, February 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- San Diego Mayoral candidate Steve Francis announced his Vision Plan as part of his successful campaign announcement week. “For us to meet the challenges of the 21st century, San Diego must once and for all become a world-class city that advances new opportunities for every resident, and meets the needs of every neighborhood. I have the visionary leadership and the strength to make the tough decisions necessary to prepare every San Diegan for the world of tomorrow,” Francis said.
“I believe local government should work for the people, not the lobbyists, the downtown political elite and the special interests. I am committed to a full clean sweep of City Hall, and advancing a new city government that is ethical, open, and accountable. In our city, every tax dollar must be protected from wasteful spending and abuse, and every tax payer should receive nothing less than a full and accurate accounting of local government spending,” Francis said.
“San Diego must become a city that takes care of its own,” Francis continued. “City Hall must pull our community together, and lead a new effort to bridge the digital divide, protect the working poor, care for the medically indigent and serve the needs of the homeless. Every child must become integrated into our dynamic economy, and obtain equal opportunities for success and prosperity.”
“Our city must become the green jewel of Southern California – the unrivaled leader in environmental protection, parks programs and sustainable design,” Francis enthused. “San Diego must fully fund its public safety services, and provide firefighters and police officers the tools and resources they need to protect our neighborhoods and respond at a moment’s notice. Saving minutes will save lives.”
“I believe every parent has a right to send their child to a high-performing school to receive a quality education they deserve,” Francis said. “The Mayor’s Office must be an active partner, not an absent bystander, in securing the success of public schools. True leadership requires government officials to be honest, strong, and visionary. San Diego deserves a mayor with a global perspective, that thinks outside the box, and holds himself accountable. Working together, we can reach our highest dreams, give City Hall back to the people, and truly build a world-class city. “
