Mayor

Judge Dick Murphy

Superior Court Judge and former Councilmember. Have you had enough:

  • Explosive growth?

Judge Murphy offers an alternative–leadership with 2020 vision. His vision for San Diego in 2020 includes:

  • Clean beaches and bays, by stopping sewer leaks and controlling stormwater runoff.
  • Neighborhoods we can be proud of, with well-maintained streets, parks, libraries, and underground utilities.
  • America’s safest city, with the lowest crime rate in America.

Judge Murphy is not a career politician and has the education, experience, and integrity to provide the leadership we need:

  • U.S. Army Veteran;
  • University of Illinois, B. A.;
  • Harvard Business School, M.B.A.;
  • Stanford Law School, J. D.;
  • Attorney/businessman;

Ron Roberts

Ron Roberts is one of those rare leaders who has had success in both the public and private sectors.

A respected architect who helped build one of San Diego’s leading architectural firms, he left the private sector to serve on the San Diego City Council, and later the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, because he wanted to give back to the city he loves. Ron helped take County government from near-bankruptcy to what the Taxpayers Association now calls “a model of local government innovation.”

Ron’s roots in San Diego go back to 1951, when his family was taken in by a Barrio Logan family until they secured a place in one of the city’s first public housing projects in Linda Vista. Working his way through San Diego State and UC Berkeley, Ron met and married his wife of 36 years, Helene (ha LEEN), who works as the Director of Community Relations for Health Sciences at UCSD Medical Center. They have three daughters.

Ron led the effort at the County to voluntarily contribute over $17 million to the City of San Diego to aid in the completion of SR-56. In addition, Ron has fought against the relocation of Marine Helicopters to Miramar.

Ron was the first-place finisher in the March mayoral primary. Since the primary he has secured the support of nearly every organization that has endorsed a candidate for Mayor.

Among his other activities, he serves as a member of the California Air Resources Board, the Metropolitan Transit Development Board, and the San Diego Workforce Partnership.

City Council

Tom Cleary

The man with a traffic plan. The #1 choice of Scripps Ranch voters in the March primary election!

  • Scripps Ranch homeowner since 1991;
  • Married 12 years to Donna Cleary;
  • Father of Brendan and Jack; and
  • Endorsed by Bob Dingeman, Marc Sorensen, Wes Danskin, Bob Ilko, and many more.

Traffic and growth, future fiscal integrity and infrastructure needs, as well as police and fire protection, are my top priorities. I am aggressively addressing child pedestrian safety, drag racing by young people, and an improved regional transportation system.

  • From the beginning, I have actively fought against the rezoning of the Scripps Ranch business park.
  • I pledge to protect our quality of life by not allowing new development or the proposed military family housing to gridlock our streets and overcrowd our schools.
  • I advocate building SR 125 to stop Poway and Ramona traffic from short-cutting through our communities.
  • I will continue to promote storm water diversion programs to help keep our beaches and ocean clean.

My memberships include: Scripps Ranch Civic Association, Save Our Scripps (SOS) Ranch, St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church, and San Diego Oceans Foundation. Visit my website [www.cleary4council.com] and download a copy of my 26-page traffic plan, or call me at 547-9132.

Brian Maienschein

As the 5th District representative on the city council, I’ll work to preserve what is best about our community, while solving the traffic and budget problems that threaten our quality of life.

Working with community groups like Save Our Scripps Ranch, I will continue the fight to preserve previous open space.

As a resident who commutes daily on I-15, I am greatly concerned with land use and transportation planning to reduce traffic congestion and protect our quality of life. City government needs to put the interests of district residents ahead of the downtown establishment.

Career bureaucrats and politicians have misplaced city budget priorities. I will bring a much-needed business perspective to the budget process at City Hall and will ensure that neighborhoods, not downtown monuments, become the city’s top priority.

I was gratified to finish first in the March primary election. To date, I have been endorsed by numerous organizations, including the San Diego Firefighters, San Diego Police Officers, League of Conservation Voters, and the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association.

Community College

Ken Moser

Vice-president, San Diego Community College board of trustees, small businessman, and volunteer teacher.

Thank you for making me the primary top-vote-getter in our neighborhood as well as all the others in our district.

I’m proud to have been able to serve you over the past 31/2 years (100% attendance record) implementing my common-sense platform: increasing accountability, redirecting resources to upgrade classroom equipment and expediting needed construction at Miramar College. Now administrators are more accountable, classrooms have state-of-the-art computers, while student fees were reduced.

The San Diego Union-Tribune (2/16/00) wrote, “Moser…took advice, and then swung into action. He pushed resolutions making it easier for trustees to initiate matters in their own public meetings, creating trustee committees to oversee policy, and setting the district’s first campaign contribution limits, among other measures. Moser also helped thwart an administration proposal to discontinue access to a Miramar baseball field for hundreds of Little Leaguers.”

As a community college graduate who employs thirty people, I understand how important public education is to our future. I will continue to provide taxpayers, with the independent accountability and governing you deserve–no special interest strings attached!

My endorsements include: Charlene Zettel, Barbara Warden, Brian Maienschein, and Wadie Deddeh. Contact me at 569-5757, [[email protected]], or [www.vote4us.com].

In l992, Gov. Wilson appointed me to his “Task Force on Rural Competitiveness.” During my time on this committee, I chaired the subcommittee on K-12 education. It was this committee that recommended smaller classroom sizes.
