RE: Equal Rights For All PAC Endorses Amy Reichert for San Diego County Supervisor District 4
The Equal Rights for All board enthusiastically announces its endorsement of Amy Reichert, candidate for San Diego County Supervisor District 4!
The top priorities in her campaign are homelessness, public safety, and the current economic turndown that has depleted paychecks and savings for many families. These concerns stem from her heart as a mother. She knows that the current direction of the San Diego Board is not prioritizing kitchen table topics. Amy grew up in San Diego and remembers when it was one of America’s safest and most beautiful cities. Now, it faces the challenges of rising crime and homelessness. She wants to restore San Diego to its prior stature as a model for what a city can accomplish and provide when its leaders seek to serve their communities and not their personal political ambitions.
Amy is not a career politician, but a small business owner who understands that San Diego citizens deserve better services for their tax dollars. She co-founded ReOpen San Diego to hold government officials accountable for lockdown policies that were destroying livelihoods and childhoods. She has logged the miles and endless hours knocking on over 1,000 doors and taking the time to listen to her neighbors, law enforcement agents, and fellow local business owners. She is a state-licensed investigator who can be a trusted steward of San Diego County’s annual budget of $7 billion dollars. She is running in a swing district. A vote for Amy is a vote for making San Diego County safer. We applaud this citizen for her willingness to fight for her hometown.
During our interview with Amy, she expressed her unwavering support of our efforts in defeating Proposition 16. She believes that there is no place for government-sanctioned preferences with respect race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, college admissions, or government contracting. Amy is a fierce defender of individual liberty and rights. Her opponents and naysayers will label her as an underdog. We know they have it wrong; she’s a mama bear on a mission to defend her family’s home against government overreach. That spirit is the embodiment of equal rights for all.
We respect her persistence. She ran in 2022 and realized San Diego needed a fighter for the long haul. Her motivation has not diminished from the 2022 results; in fact, it made her more determined and wiser. She is putting in the hours pounding the pavement and knocking on doors. She is out in neighborhoods working to earn trust, respect, and votes.
We support candidates who will fight to preserve equal rights and to protect families. Amy is that candidate.
