The months remaining in Filner's mayoral term until the November election count as a big job. Recovery work needs to stay stable, and keep on going, withut the liberal city investor who made neighborhoods his proving grounds to rely on.
Holding the Mayor's office, until December in 2016, will give a winner an opportunity to gain, for San Diego, the economic rewards that come from giving locals the jobs, and the work, that end the period their contribution to their city came short. The call Councilman Todd Gloria got to serve as interim mayor, after Filner serves his final day on Friday, August 30th, was a call to build a bridge to the long months the next mayor will have to fins all the fixes for the slow rising labor market.
Investing in jobs, proof a leader has committed to working San Diegans, was a plan that kept Nathan Fletcher in the race last year. Locals can expect him to have plans to open the city's purse strings to make investments in supporting small businesses that hire, and new start ups. WIth the unemployment rate in the stable 7s, the main question can now change to, how improved a contribution to the local economy's recovery can workers make?
Local workers have their own ability to produce results to prove. The best thanks goes out to all working San Diegans.
Idleness is a problem that has been largely fixed by new job opporunities. Now, San DIegans have an opportunity to stand onthe front lines in America's recovery, and do all that needs to get done to build up the productivity gains that workers earn in return for the investments in the labor market.
A leader who takes their stock in improved counts workers restore to the productivity market, and builds up the counts workers take on their shoulders to lay out and build, can strengthen the ability of the workers to take on a heavy burden in making the recovery a long growth period that makes San Diego a greater example for a productive labor town than before the recession.
Enlarging workers opportunities to make their own contributions has not been a plan the Republican reluctant to work directly with labor, Carl DeMaio, put on his list. The investments in his plan were dedicated to stimulating small business growth enough to enable the owners to hire. And scale up the business enterprise. Cutting both taxes and city spending kept his best city investment plan within practiacl limits.
Fletcher can strike a good note with voters by ending a campaign past in he city hed back by decisions to publicly overlook how much working San Diegans work they can offer acn count in the recovery.
