Mitz Lee, Sherri Lightner, Harry Mathis Endorse Tommy in D6 Race

San Diego County Planning Commissioner and San Diego City Council candidate Tommy Hough continues to expand a bipartisan neighborhood coalition in his race for the District 6 seat, and his campaign is welcoming several new endorsements that demonstrate, in part, Hough’s already considerable base of support in District 6.

Mitz Lee – A 39-year resident of Mira Mesa, the former San Diego Unified school board member endorsed Tommy shortly after the APAC Night of the Round Tables event, saying “Tommy has a strong independent streak and an overriding concern for our District 6 neighbors and communities. He’s been going door-to-door for months, he listens and is ready to facilitate conversations and consensus, and is the kind of active, engaged leader we need at City Hall.”

Sherri Lightner – The former District 1 councilmember and former San Diego City Council President is backing Tommy because of the leadership he’s already brought to District 6. “Tommy is a strong community advocate who has the political independence, integrity, experience, and knowledge of local issues needed to support his hard-working neighbors. He has the background and experience to understand and resolve our city’s challenges.”

Harry Mathis – The former District 1 councilmember, former MTS chair, retired U.S. Navy submarine captain, and long-time University City resident noted Hough’s perseverance and determination to talk with San Diegans at the door. “Having already run for the seat once before, Tommy understands the value of hearing from voters about issues like transit, public safety, and growth, especially in the context of the new boundaries of District 6. I believe he will be a valuable and independent voice on City Council.”

Tommy also recently received a Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction, in addition to a similar acknowledgement from San Diegans for Gun Violence Prevention as a Gun Violence Prevention candidate, and received the endorsement of the Downtown Democratic Club at their Sept. 15th meeting.
