We’ve examined more than 30 bold claims surrounding San Diego’s mayoral election and two more recently landed in our Fact Check queue.

During a televised debate, City Councilman Carl DeMaio said San Diego has the eighth worst roads in the nation and they are expected to get worse under the city’s current maintenance plan.

At a candidates’ forum, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis claimed the racial and ethnic diversity of her employees reflects the residents they serve.

Are their claims true? Andrew Donohue and Scott Lewis explain our analyses and ratings in this edition of Fact Check TV.

New episodes of Fact Check TV appear on NBC 7 San Diego every Friday during the 6 p.m. newscast and our website the following Monday. If you want us to Fact Check a claim, just send me an email explaining the statement and why it merits review.
