San Diego CityBeat

Much has been made of the troika of Republican San Diego City Council candidates that mayoral hopeful Carl DeMaio has touted on the 2012 campaign trail as the team he needs to make comprehensive pension reform a reality.
The word “slate” has been bandied about quite a bit, apparently to the consternation of DeMaio’s political handlers at Revolvis Consulting, a firm that also happens to be running the campaigns of conservative candidates Ray Ellis in District 1, Mark Kersey in District 5 and Scott Sherman in District 7.
It seems that such talk of a link with the financially well-off DeMaio actually hurts fundraising efforts for the trio of council candidates. Meanwhile, folks at Revolvis—who did not respond for this column—are apparently shrugging it off as Carl being Carl.
