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.
