People Over Politics

Introductory photo

For Marni, it’s always about progress – never today’s divisive, ugly politics.

Marni authored the first-of-its-kind law to stop the flood of untraceable ghost guns – and it’s making San Diego safer.

She’s added new parks and sped up road repairs – and it’s making life in our neighborhoods even better.

And time and again, when risky downtown deals put taxpayers in jeopardy, Marni speaks truth to power and fights for us.

That’s Marni. People over politics. Always.

We strongly support

“I’m frankly shocked by this because eliminating LGBTQ content from libraries is what you might expect in Mississippi, but never here in San Diego,” von Wilpert said. “Denying others the right to read LGBTQ-affirming books is just another way of telling LGBTQ people they don’t belong — and that’s dead wrong. Everyone has the right to read what they want, but absolutely no one has the right to keep others from reading books that reflect their experiences and backgrounds.”
