Councilmember Marti Emerald takes credit where not due

This updates the Jan. 23 report on storm damage to Lake Murray’s service road (http://wp.me/pySCN-17V)

The temporary repair is in place.

City Councilmember Marti Emerald wasted no time using this event for political advantage. On Feb. 3, she issued a press release headlined “Councilmember Marti Emerald Gets Fix For Lake Murray Sinkhole” (http://www.sandiego.gov/citycouncil/cd7/pdf/100203lakemurraysinkhole.pdf).

Quite disingenuous, because the Water Department had already begun temporary repairs and planning for the permanent repair and provided Ms. Emerald’s office with information about it when she made her request. The press release also calls it a pedestrian path, but it is actually a service road belonging to the Water Department which the public is presently permitted to use.

She got the information, not the fix
