San Bernardino voters are looking at a crowded ballot for the November 5, 2013 Election.
Ten candidates are running to be the next Mayor of San Bernardino, three City Council wards are up for election, and voters will decide whether or not to recall two City Councilmembers and the City Attorney.
The winners of this election will be facing a mountain of issues once sworn into office. More than anything, our City needs cohesiveness on the City Council dais.
There is a lot of work to be done to recover from where our City has been taken.
We believe that those of you who work, operate a business and demand a clean, safe community to raise your families hold the key to the future of San Bernardino.
Now it’s crunch time and the focus must be on three main priorities:
#1 the bankruptcy and its aftermath;
#2 returning our community to a level of safety that will accomplish your goal: to feel safe and to raise your families and run your businesses without fear of victimization;
#3 expansion of the economic base and a return to liquidity in our General Fund.
There are a lot of other issues being thrown in to the mix to garner support for one candidate or another, but those issues, though individually important to some, will not fix our community. They serve to create confusion and muddy the waters.
Having thoroughly vetted and reviewed the candidates, the San Bernardino Police Officers’ Association believes your goals will best be met by electing the following candidates.
Mayor: No recommendation at this time.
