Bonnie Dumanis: “You know me, San Diego”

San Diego’s longtime District Attorney goes full politician, facing her first contested election in a decade.

San Diego’s District Attorney is a bit of a trailblazer.  In a way, Bonnie Dumanis is sort of a rags-to-riches story, going from secretarial work to attorney to judge, and in 2002 she was chosen by the electorate to become the top law enforcement official in all of San Diego County, beating Paul Pfingst to become the DA.  And oh-by-the-way:  She’s the first openly gay person to be elected District Attorney in the nation.

She’s been a relatively popular and prominent figure in San Diego ever since.  She cruised to reelection in 2006 and again in 2010, running unopposed each time, making the 2012 mayoral election the first contested race she has participated in since first winning the DA’s office a decade ago.  It speaks to the confidence the residents of San Diego County have in her.  Other than a few hiccups here and there (one incident in particular), her tenure as District Attorney has been fairly controversy free.  She has been a well known, well respected figure in San Diego, and now she’s running for Mayor.

And that’s basically her pitch in a nutshell:  “You know me.”  She carries the sort of name recognition and public persona that is incredibly difficult to achieve.  Her reputation is certainly enviable as far as politicians go.  She is a known entity.  San Diego has trusted her explicitly for almost a decade.

Her tenure has been mostly apolitical.    Really, though, the measure of a good DA should be someone who sticks to the law and does their job fighting crime without prejudice.  Justice is blind, as they say, and everyone deserves to be treated equally under the law.  That’s basically how she’s handled the job, and judging by the way no one’s seen fit to challenge her as DA, San Diego feels pretty comfortable about that too.

And yet being Mayor of the second largest city in the largest state in the Union is quite a bit different with an entirely different set of challenges than those presented to the District Attorney.  Being mayor presents a whole new set of political tests that as DA she’s never really had to confront.  While there are some politics involved with being the District Attorney, it’s mostly about judgment and following the law.  We really don’t know nearly as much about Bonnie Dumanis’ politics as we do about the other three major candidates, because rightfully that’s not the role she played.  And that’s what makes her one of the most intriguing candidates in this year’s mayoral race.

We do know Bonnie Dumanis.  We trust her.  But do we really know what kind of mayor she’d make?

Policy position wise—with some exceptions—she’s a moderate, right leaning politician (very refreshing for a declared Republican candidate in today’s environment).  She supports Prop B, the pension plan overhaul written by her Republican opponent, Carl DeMaio.  Her contention is that cities in general can simply no longer afford to continue to provide the same level of benefits.  “I went to Houston for an LGBT conference.  All the municipal leaders were in one room, and the number one topic of discussion was pension reform,” she said.

In the past, she said, “people took jobs in public service to get the security of retirement as opposed to taking the risk of making a lot of money.”  But because of the current job market, she says governments no longer need to offer such retirement packages in order to compete with private sector employers.  “We hired 20 lawyers last year (in the DA’s office), and 500 lawyers, most of them out of jobs, applied for that.”

“You can’t get in the private market right now that high salary, so you’re not sacrificing that” by choosing the public sector over the private sector, she said.

The initiative, she says, allows for the purchase of an annuity.  “There are several big firms where the employees can pool their money and purchase an annuity that will give them a steady stream of income that can look like a defined benefit.”  The city would put in up to 9.5%, and the employees themselves could put in more, and the risk would be shifted from the city to the employees themselves.

Even if the stock market were to collapse like it did in 2008, she says that these companies are strong enough to make it through a financial meltdown.  So the risk for the employees is essentially minimal.

“Borrowing is not the answer.  It will cost more money by borrowing than you will by doing this.”

She also notes that the pay freeze in the reform plan only applies to pensionable salaries.  City workers would still be eligible for cash bonuses, which do not count against what gets paid out in pensions.

Dumanis also wants to be a reformer on education in San Diego.  Her plan calls for the appointment of four additional school board members, bringing the total to nine.  Those members would be chosen from a list provided by the presidents of SDSU, USD, the San Diego Community College District, the Chancellor of UCSD, and representatives chosen by a parent advisory group.  The mayor would then choose from that list of names the four appointees for the school board.

Dumanis wants to be clear, though, that her plan does not constitute a mayoral takeover, but rather a way to get more people involved in the education system.  She also wants to see the school district cut costs by switching from traditional text books to electronic text books, which she says are far less expensive, and create partnerships with private foundations to make sure that every student has internet access at home and either a netbook or tablet computer such as an iPad to use.  This would also help to advance and enhance the San Diego Unified School District’s i21 Interactive Classroom program.

As the District Attorney, Dumanis has come under fire for the increased enforcement of marijuana laws, and the closure of the city’s marijuana dispensaries.  That blame, she says, is misplaced.  “The police investigate the crimes and then they come to us.”  She says that it’s the US Attorney enforcing federal regulations and the City Attorney through nuisance abatement laws that have been more directly involved in the crackdown and not the DA’s office.  “We have not been involved in this for quite some time.”

“I support the Compassionate Use Act,” Dumanis said.  “I have friends who have had terminal diseases that have used it and it has provided them great relief.”

“What I don’t support is the selling and dealing in our neighborhoods.”  She said that the law was changed to make it “murkier” with regards to collectives and cooperatives, but where the law draws the line, according to Dumanis, is in the sale of marijuana strictly for profit.  “The law doesn’t provide for making money just selling marijuana.”

“In our office we have never prosecuted someone who was just a patient,” Dumanis insisted.  The law as it exists on the books, she said, allows for individuals to obtain a medical recommendation for use, and for that individual or their doctor to be able to grow their own marijuana plants, which she says she supports.

Acknowledging a backlog in infrastructure projects within the San Diego city limits, like other candidates Dumanis suggests implementing a geographic information system mapping program to prioritize, coordinate, and track repair projects.  In the first 100 days of a Dumanis administration, she says, she will implement a management system that has been adapted from the County that she has used in the DA’s office.  The system creates accountability, performance measures, and includes a reward system that helps to create better efficiency and help get projects done faster.

There is money available now to do the work, she said, “they just can’t spend it because it’s clogged up in the bureaucracy.  So we’re gonna cut through that red tape.”

“I’ve watched them fix a pothole, and then come back two weeks later and dig it up to fix the sewer line.  You’ve now done duplicate work there.”  “It’s a crappy system that needs to be fixed.”  Better coordination with city and county agencies such as SANDAG, and private entities like SDG&E and the telecom companies who do their own digging in the same areas will help to cut down on costs, she said.

Since we were on the topic of capital improvements, I asked her about the Chargers’ stadium situation.  She said she does not support using taxpayer money to help build it, but that she does support the idea of a sports and entertainment complex.  The plan, though, must be a regional plan that includes other public entities in addition to the City of San Diego.

As a part of the efforts to bolster the technology industries that are growing in San Diego, Dumanis said that public transportation needs to be expanded into Sorrento Valley, and she would like to see the trolley extended to run to the airport.

And in case you were curious:  No, she has not signed the Grover Norquist pledge.

The fact that she wasn’t at all aware of how Social Security would have to be factored into the Prop B pension reform plan was a little concerning.  She indicated that she thought that the city would not have to pay into Social Security if San Diego switched to a 401k style plan, and that it was an either/or proposition.  That does not appear to be the case.  According to the website 401kfocus.com, 401k accounts and Social Security are entirely separate accounts, one having nothing to do with the other.  It also states “it is important to realize that Social Security is not intended to provide for your entire retirement, but is meant to serve as a supplement to other income sources.”

Dumanis said that since she had never been in a position to deal with pensions before she had to consult with a number of experts on the matter, and that she was comfortable with Prop B.  She said it remained to be determined, however, if the city would have to begin paying into Social Security for its workers or not (due to the defined benefits city workers are currently eligible for they are not eligible for Social Security).  This factor could significantly increase the costs of Prop B, and yet no one seems to have an answer to that question.

She also scoffed at the notion that pay raises for city workers would be denied by the City Council and Mayor.  Since under Prop B pensionable salaries would be frozen, and given the fact that city workers have been working under a pay freeze for the past five years due to the fiscal crisis the city is just crawling out of, that would make 10 years with not even a cost of living increase for city workers.  Then again, that’s Carl DeMaio’s plan:  Make it so onerous to work for the City of San Diego that it eventually drives everyone away and he can contract out those services to private companies.

While city workers would still be eligible for cash bonuses under Prop B, it is far from guaranteed that they would receive one.  Dumanis indicated that should she be elected Mayor she would certainly work with the employee representatives, but that still places them at the mercy of the Mayor and City Council.  Which would raise a whole other set of legal questions, since by law all salaries and benefits packages for public employees are supposed to be collectively bargained and cannot be left to the whims of the city government or the voters.

Her refusal to even consider refinancing the pension debt is a bit baffling as well; she says it would cost the city too much.  If the city followed Bob Filner’s plan to refinance for 30 years, over the long term she’d be right.  But if you follow her logic, no one would ever refinance their home to lower their mortgage payments.  To take it a step further, no one but the ultra wealthy could even purchase a home, since taking out a mortgage would be considered far too expensive in the long run.

There are times when stretching the payments out over a longer period of time to free up funds in the short run makes perfect sense, and this is one of those times.

Dumanis was entirely personable and delightful to talk to.  Yet she was still rather short on policy specifics.  She has a lot of big, general ideas; some of them quite good, some of them not as good.  She is right, too:  We do know her, and we do trust her.  We even like her.  But we saw what happened the last time a judge became Mayor, and it didn’t turn out well.  The question is did being the District Attorney adequately prepare her for the mayor’s office?

One thing is absolutely certain:  San Diego could do worse than Bonnie Dumanis.  A lot worse.

Just think, a few short months ago the Dumanis organization was freaking out because the Rag mentioned one of their upcoming fundraisers in a story. Now the candidate is talking to us. I guess it shows that the President isn’t the only one who’s is evolving (lol). As another member of the team tasked with bringing some election perspective to the OBRag, I want to thank Andy for his diligent efforts in making sure that we had all the angles covered. A round of applause for Andy!
Now that I’ve said all those nice things…IMHO… We can do a lot better than Bonnie Dumanis.

Someone does not seem to understand that a home loan is backed by the property as collateral. (School districts use bonds for building projects not salaries, pensions, and current operations.) Any plan that uses long term debt to finance short term operations is not sound money management. Of course, this debt solution could have been put on the ballot and could have been voted upon, if it was such a great idea.

The pension debt would be refinanced through pension bonds. But regardless, refinancing is refinancing.

Right on Bigdogg88!! Dumanis is a P.O.S. as far as I’m concerned. Started with her shutting down all the dispensaries, which is illegal btw state wise….I could go on, but I don’t want to waste too much of my precious time on this LOSER!

avatar Andy Cohen May 12, 2012 at 12:03 am

Re-read. She told me to my face that she was not responsible for shutting down the dispensaries. It was the US Attorney, who was acting under federal law (and federal law says marijuana is illegal, PERIOD), and the City Attorney, who was acting under nuisance abatement ordinances. She was very clear about that, and in fact was very sensitive to why OBceans in general were not fans of hers. She figured it was something like this, and was only happy to set the record straight. She was very clear about this, and I believe her. I’d like to give her the benefit of the doubt on this. She specifically mentioned how she had known people with AIDS and other terminal diseases that had found great relief from marijuana, so I really do think that she understands the issues. Legally speaking, what she found objectionable was the for-profit recreational sale of marijuana, which any way you slice it is still illegal.

I’m actually glad I brought this up with her (it’s not a major issue for me personally, but I know it is with many others) and that I gave her the chance to clarify her position. As DA she still has to work within the law, though.

You, or she can clarify the dispensary situation any way you like. I don’t believe her B.S. about the US Attorney because I have friends all over this state, and ONLY in San Diego have the dispensaries been shut down! All the ones up in LA, and point farther north have NOT been shut down. How does she explain that one Andy??

avatar Imjustsayinthough May 12, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Dispensaries are being shuttered up and down the state. Anyone who spent 5 minutes researching on line can see that dispensaries are being closed down from the bay area to sac town to orange county, even in humboldt county. Their closures may not be as prolific as the closures in San Diego, but that’s probably because most San diegans don’t want them around to begin with. Maybe you don’t have as many friends throughout the state as you’d like us to believe.

Wow, don’t know why you feel the need to question the amount of friends I have, which has nothing to do with the matter at hand. Just plain rude. Just talked to my friend in LA this morning, none of the dispensaries in her area are closed. Do you now want to call my so called friend a liar?

Reply

avatar Imjustsayinthough May 13, 2012 at 11:36 am

No, not at all. Just wanted clarification on your “friends all up and down this state” and your 1 friend in L A. L A is kind of a big town, I’m sure if your friend tried (go on line) she could see that even tinsel has been working a long time on reeling these pot shops in. Sorry if I seem rude, I just don’t want you to confuse people on the real situation in our state and city. You can not and should not make a bunch a money of money dealing weed pretending you give 2 s**** about sick people. That is what the law more or less says and that is also what Bonnie is saying here.

avatar OB Mercy May 13, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Again, I wish I didn’t feel the need to defend all this, but I must. I have lived most of my life in LA, and from time to time, dispensaries get shut down. I also have many friends in LA, and most of them have told me recently that they are still able to access their dispensaries. Talked to two more of my friends over this weekend and their dispensaries are still open too. Again, raids do happen and some of them get shut down here and there….not ALL of them like in San Diego. Wait, I do remember someone telling me that there was one open here in San Diego still…in downtown. How random, doesn’t make any sense.

But I do have a problem with so many alcohol drinking, cigarette smoking people putting down people who use pot recreationally. Really? Never been ANY proof that pot has caused any cancers, liver failures, etc. unlike those first two legal substances. If you did your research, you would know that this is a war of a totally different kind. Our govt will never be happy about pot until they control it completely, which many of us are realizing in the long run, may NOT be good for it to be totally legalized.

Andy,

Medical cannabis advocates don’t generally blame the present shut-down on Dumanis as it was the US Atty’s who led the charge. What they DO hold her in scorn for, is her crackdown in 2009, her double prosecution of Jovan Jackson, and many other actions.

For her to answer her critics on medical cannabis by disowning the current crackdown is simply deceitful. She wasn’t “setting the record straight” she was engaging in slight of hand.

And the fallback position of “as DA she still has to work within the law” misunderstands the affirmative efforts Dumanis took by soliciting federal funds, coordinating county wide raids, going after directive collectives who had previously been acquitted, etc. Medical cannabis crackdown was a priority for her, which is why she’s earned so much ill-will from patients and advocates.

And as far as her pro-medical cannabis rhetoric. Check out this piece. http://www.sdcitybeat.com/sandiego/blog-580-medical-marijuana-la.html

The long and short of it, this interview is not an instance of Dumanis “setting the record straight” on medical cannabis. She conflated this year’s crackdown (which folks don’t blame on her) with her actions in 2009 (which spawned websites like this one .

Oh, I’ve been known to editorialize myself. But I think if a candidate–especially a major candidate like Bonnie Dumanis, or Bob Filner, or Scott Peters–is willing to give us a good chunk of their time like this, then we owe it to them to give them a fair and reasonably impartial hearing. We can parse over what they said or their positions later in other posts, but in a piece based on an interview such as this they deserve to have their views and positions aired unfettered. The readers can then decide for themselves whether they like what they read or not.

Thanks for the props, though. I do try. But the next time you get sick and have to back out on an interview and you need me to step in, do try to give me a little more than a few hours to prepare, will ya?

Hope you feel better!

Ask Pinal County, AZ, residents if a gay sheriff can protect their interests. If their sheriff was never involved in any kind of scandal (which Bonnie Dumanis has not) I can guarantee you he would be re-elected sheriff. The fact that she is a lesbian has absolutely NOTHING to do with her ability to carry out her official duties. The suggestion that you think it does reflects more on you and your prejudices than it does on her.

Message from a friend who wants to stay annonymous:

“Where’s Bonnie? She sure is not looking into my case, Looks like workers comp fraud is ok if your company takes redevelopment money.”

I sure wish people would wake up. I have the courts for conspiring to defraud the public of billions of dollars. I was just incarcerated for refusing to sign a fraudulent document under penalty of perjury that would have absolved all the judicial corrution. Then, I was given a false sheriff department record that I was incarcerated for civil contempt of court – to conceal that a judge, with no subject matter jurisdiction, locked me up for refusing to be coerced into perjury.

PLEASE WAKE UP PEOPLE. Its billions in fraud by corrupt local judiciary, some of whom are those who run the judicial branch of CA. Bonnie knows all about it. I’m on record of reporting it to her many times and in many ways. She does NOTHING.

This is a huge fraud of corrupt judiciary – while our local DA, who wants to run our city, turns a blind eye. It involves her buds, Justice Judith McConnell (ex-Chair of the Ca Comm on Judicial Performance) and Justice Richard Huffman (ex-Chair of the Executive Comm of the Judicial Council) and long with their Clerk of the Court.

I can’t get one damn attorney in the whole state of CA to stand up to these thugs, while lives continue to be ruined, and I was incarcerated for refusing to be coerced to defraud. – with the Sheriff Dept record falsified to conceal it. Its BILLIONS IN FRAUD and they desperately want me to shut up. I’m not shutting up.
Too many lives at stake.

Reply

Andy,
Citing that story again conflates the current crackdown with previous crackdowns. Dumanis knows the antipathy towards her stems from previous crackdowns and that answer is nothing but misdirection.

In any case, this info was just posted on Twitter:
“Helping Cloud Collective located at 3690 Murphy Canyon Rd (at Stonecrest Blvd) San Diego, CA 92123, was raided today by Bonnie Dumanis and her cross jurisdictional task force along with the DEA. The facility remains closed. More details to follow as they are available.”

So yeah, for supporters of safe access to medical cannabis, Dumanis is at the bottom of the mayoral list. For people who appreciate forthright politicians who show a willingness to own up to their action and accept criticism from those who disagree – rather than misdirect and obfuscate in an effort to gain undeserved support – it looks like Dumanis isn’t the candidate for them either.

Fully beating a dead horse at this point Andy, but here is yet another current example of Dumanis’ continued targeting of medical cannabis patients. After a mistrial Dumanis’ office tried to refile charges and Judge dismissed the case “in the interest of justice.”

Again, Dumanis’ rhetoric of being at peace with medical cannabis proves untrue.

Thanks for that article Ben. When even the judge is saying Dumanis is keeping patients from their prescriptions and basically breaking the law, I wonder how people can keep defending her. I just love the fact that being a middle aged woman, I have to go to a parking lot and to a car and get my scrip from a delivery company to get my medicine instead of walking into a dispensary and picking it up like I used to. Bonnie…what the hell are you accomplishing by keeping us from our meds?? I have almost crippling arthritis. Do you enjoy keeping me from the little bit of pain relief I can get?

I happen to know first hand that Bonnie Dumanis does not “go after corrupt politicians”. One of them being Lynn Schenk’s co-founding mother of the Lawyers Club, who is now Presiding Justice of the Fourth District Division One Appellate Court. As a result, my life is in eminent danger for daring to speak the truth of a massive insurer cost shifting scheme in US public health policy and CA workers’ comp policy, with some of it taking place in San Diego county. Dumanis started to investigate. She stopped when she realized WHO was behind aiding it to continue. http://contemptofcourtfor.me/2012/03/12/a-really-sad-day-for-me-the-constitution-i-am-going-to-jail-today/.

I was sent to jail when I refused to be coerced into silence. Looks like they are going to try to do it again. Dumanis knows all about it but does nothing to stop it while aiding Ms. Schenk’s compromised political base to grow. http://wp.me/p20mAH-hu
