Dear friends of inewsource,

Yesterday was difficult and historic for San Diego with the resignation of Mayor Bob Filner, less than a year into his first term. inewsource was proud to have had a key role in the early days of the breaking news, proud to bring you facts in the crowded and often rumor-filled media space.

The city now moves to another election for a “strong” mayor, and inewsource will be there to “follow the money,” as we did last fall. We will track political and financial connections, as well. The data and careful reporting will empower you to make informed decisions from Day One.

For perspective on issues surrounding Mayor Filner, I recommend to you an in-depth piece inewsource reported and wrote about the contradictions that are Bob Filner.  The reporter on the story, Alex Roth, whom we recruited specifically to bolster our coverage of the mayor, was part of the Roundtable on KPBS television Friday night. You can catch up with that conversation here.

Thank you for supporting inewsource. Show your enthusiasm for our work. Share this email!
