“San Diego deserves a qualified City Attorney who puts the law ahead of politics. I’m a Chief Deputy City Attorney. I’ve stopped fraud and opened emergency homeless shelters. I’ll take on domestic violence and illegal guns. I’ll protect taxpayers always. San Diego’s legal community supports me, but the most important endorsement is yours. I’d be honored to be your City Attorney.”

In San Diego city attorney candidates’ fight for key support, Mara Elliott endorses her chief deputy

Elliott said Wednesday that she was endorsing Ferbert to succeed her because of her experience and the issues Ferbert would prioritize.


Why We Need an Elected, Independent City Attorney

San Diego’s independent, elected city attorney has worked to protect the city’s finances and the public interest for nearly a century. Yet now, some city councilmembers want to strip voters of their power to elect San Diego’s chief legal advisor and eliminate the independence essential to the office’s mission of protecting taxpayers and putting residents first.


What does it take to run for city attorney? Maienschein could face legal challenge.

“The City Council and the voters insisted on deep legal experience for this position because there’s so much on the line — 20,000 criminal prosecutors and 200 civil lawsuits a year, plus hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars at stake in every decision,” he said. “The last time Maienschein practiced law it was literally the last century.”
