If you’re from around here, you probably already know Marni.
She’s our Councilwoman and our community’s champion. She fought for safety and justice as a local city prosecutor. And Marni grew up right here in our neighborhood – she graduated from Scripps Ranch High, led our local girl scouts as a teenager and still lives just a stone’s throw from her childhood home.
Leading the city’s Public Safety Committee, Marni is bringing unflinching focus to the task of keeping all of San Diego safe. In addition to her landmark work on gun safety, Marni has fought to hire more police officers and firefighters, and provide better training and better pay for our critical first responders. And she’s leading the charge to step up San Diego’s response on the opioid crisis, with more prevention, enforcement and access to life-saving overdose reversing treatment.
Marni has a well-earned reputation as the go-to taxpayer watchdog on the City Council, where she’s known for speaking out against bad deals for the public and lasering in on the small print that can have a big impact in city contracts. Marni’s has consistently fought to save taxpayers millions, and she’s held city contractors accountable for services they pledged to provide.
