Bonnie Dumanis Says Making District 4 Supervisor's Race Partisan Is A Political Tactic
Most of the members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors have been in office for more than 20 years. That will change after this year’s election.
New supervisors will be elected in Districts 4 and 5 because of the addition of term limits for the board positions.
District 4 covers most of the central city of San Diego from La Jolla to downtown, from Ocean Beach to Encanto. It is currently represented by termed-out Supervisor Ron Roberts.
Former San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis is one of five candidates, and the only Republican, in the District 4 race. The supervisors positions are officially non-partisan, but right now all five supervisors on the board are Republican.
Bonnie Dumanis spoke with KPBS Midday Edition host Maureen Cavanaugh about her positions on some of the top issues in the race and why she is running for the seat.
Dumanis' candidate interview airs on Thursday on Midday Edition.
