Campaign themes


On her 2012 campaign site, Weber outlines her campaign themes:

  • "As I examine this district, I realize that it was practically drawn for me. It includes San Diego State University, a place where I spent my career as a professor and administrator. It overlaps with much of the school board district that I represented for eight years. And, it is also the place where I am a homeowner, sent my children to public schools, and actively participated in the civic and cultural life of these neighborhoods for over 30 years. My roots run deep in the 79th. I ask for your support!"
