Despite Reports, Bonnie Dumanis Is Still Running For San Diego MayorBreaking News Friday, April 1st, 2011
Today, Bonnie Dumanis quickly responded to false news reports that she is dropping out of the race for San Diego mayor.
San Diego Americans for Safe Access (ASA) reported yesterday, March 31, that Dumanis was considering dropping out of mayoral race, citing the removal of one of her Facebook pages as its only source.
“San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis mayoral bid may be coming to an end as Dumanis for Mayor Facebook is shut down,” according to the story on the ASA website. “This week, the Dumanis campaign shut down the official Dumanis for Mayor Facebook campaign page and removed any mention of Bonnie Dumanis running for mayor from her personal Facebook page.”
Dumanis responded today on Twitter, saying: “I am still running for mayor – as hard as ever! Press reports I might be quitting because I took down one of my FB pages are wrong!”
Jennifer Tierney, representing the Dumanis campign, told the San Diego LGBT Weekly that Dumanis had consolidated the number of Facebook pages, which grew to more than five. “Some had been started by her office, some by her campaign, and then some personally by her,” Tierney said. “We just pared down the number of pages because it was so difficult for a Facebook user to figure out which page to use.”
The official Dumanis Facebook page – as well as her Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, MySpace and YouTube pages – can be accessed through her campaign’s website, bonnieforsandiego.com.
ASA is the local chapter of the largest national member-based organization of patients, medical professionals, scientists and concerned citizens promoting safe and legal access to cannabis for therapeutic use and research. The chapter’s website is safeaccesssd.org.
