Mayor Bob Filner is making progress on at least one campaign pledge.
We identified Filner’s pledge to prioritize diversity in his staffing decisions as one of the three big promises he made to San Diegans while campaigning. He unveiled movement on that front in a press conference Monday.
Women make up more than half of Filner’s new staffers, and more than a quarter of the hires are black or Latino. Filner also brought in Asian and LGBT employees. You can check out a list of Filner’s new hires, as well as their titles and salaries, here.
