Voters Demand True Reform, Reject Prop D
San Diegans Against Government Waste calls for cooperative reform effort


(San Diego) – Upon the defeat of Proposition D, the half-cent sales tax initiative in the City of San Diego, leaders of San Diegans Against Government Waste who opposed Prop D call upon both sides to work together to implement lasting structural budget reforms in the City of San Diego.

“Both sides need to put aside the campaign rhetoric. We need to work together,” said City Council President Pro Tem Kevin Faulconer. “The City Council should move to implement the remaining reforms in Prop. D.

“As chair of the Audit Committee and vice-chair of the Budget and Finance Committee, I am going to continue pushing to complete the reforms, make the changes and resolve the endless rounds of budget turmoil,” added Faulconer.

“San Diego voters have spoken loud and clear. They refused to hand over a blank check with no guarantees to elected officials,” said Councilmember Carl DeMaio. “This vote sends a strong message to city leaders. There is a serious lack of trust in City Hall. Voters want elected officials to be accountable for their actions.

“Now is the time for everyone to put campaigning aside, and for both sides to work together to achieve real and lasting reform. We must implement managed competition, reform out of control pension costs, and identify ways to cut spending that will preserve vital services for all citizens,” said DeMaio.

T.J. Zane, chairman of San Diegans Against Government Waste, and President & CEO of the Lincoln Club of San Diego County, said “We knew we were taking on a David versus Goliath fight and would be outgunned and outspent thanks to public labor union money. But we had the strongest argument on our side and the voters agreed.

“It has been an honor and a pleasure to ‘quarterback’ for the No on D committee the past few months. Everyone on our team played an invaluable role and we cannot thank them enough for their efforts. Our diverse coalition of business and community interests, led by Councilmembers DeMaio and Faulconer, offered an impressive display of unity and cohesiveness,” added Zane.

Among the organizations who supported San Diegans Against Government Waste:
“The voters have spoken and their rejection of Prop D is a clear mandate for substantive reform,” said Lani Lutar, President & CEO of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association. “We must all work together now to pursue aggressive reform and managed competition so that we can preserve core government services.”
