Livia Borak, president of the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) San Diego has called out mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio for his attempt to rebrand his mayoral campaign with the release of an environmental plan.
Citing his “terrible” environmental record as a city councilmember Borak said in a statement,
“While the policy goals outlined by Carl DeMaio are welcome, they unfortunately still fail to reflect any serious engagement with the environmental challenges facing San Diego. Carl DeMaio’s claims of environmental leadership would be insulting if they weren’t so obviously laughable against his terrible record on environmental issues.
“During his tenure on the council, DeMaio received F’s on the Environmental Quality Report Card in 2009 and 2011 and he mustered a D+ in 2010. By a significant margin, his cumulative score was the worst of any councilmember during that time, and he has managed to be a reliable opponent of responsible environmental policy across the board.
