Union-backed candidate Carol Kim continues to mislead voters
SAN DIEGO - Chris Cate, a candidate for San Diego City Council District 6, released his voting record today of the last 13 elections he was eligible to vote for in the County of San Diego. Cate, a native San Diegan, has a perfect record, voting in all 13 elections he’s been eligible to vote in since 2006. During Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s Politically Speaking, union-backed candidate Carol Kim accused him of only voting in “20 percent of his eligible elections during the last two years.”
While Cate has a 100 percent voting record since 2006, Kim has missed a third of the elections she’s been eligible to vote in the last eight years, including elections for President and Governor. And, four years ago, Kim did not even vote in the election for the San Diego City Council seat she now seeks.
“The voters deserve the truth from the candidates and unfortunately Carol Kim continues to mislead District 6 voters,” Cate campaign manager James Hauser said.
In Sunday’s NBC segment, Kim once again mislead voters by telling them she would reduce class sizes and cut overhead at San Diego schools if elected to the City Council. The council does not have any jurisdiction over San Diego schools, but Kim has repeatedly promised voters she would make each of these changes. Both promises appear in her campaign flyers and in her official ballot statement.
“It is getting difficult to tell when Carol is telling the truth or just saying whatever she thinks will get attention,” Hauser said. “This is not the kind of leadership we need at City Hall. San Diegans expect and deserve experienced leaders they can trust.”
