Feb 12, 2016 (San Diego) Mickey Kasparian posted his endorsement of Sara Saez for District 9 San Diego City Council. The endorsement reads:
The reason why so many people hate politics is because we often feel let down by false promises from politicians. It is important that we stand behind candidates who will be champions for working families. It is why I feel so strongly about supporting Sarah Saez for District 9 of our San Diego City Council. It’s the same reason that UFCW Local 135 and the San Diego Imperial Counties Labor Council have both endorsed her. She cares about workers and her community. Workers need her leadership. San Diego needs her leadership. Let’s all get behind Sarah Saez and change San Diego.
Among other things Saez was at the forefront of the fight to free the cab medallions, that now is allowing for open competition in the business. She also has been working for her community in front of boards and city council.
Her main opponent is Ricardo Flores, who is an aide to current Councilmember Marti Emerald.
