More Call for San Diego Mayor to Resign

Will scandals affect city's economy?

|

Some of San Diego's most influential business leaders are calling on Mayor Bob Filner to resign. Today, the life science association Biocom called on Filner to resign immediately.

Last week, former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders uninvited Mayor Bob Filner to the Chamber of Commerce's trip to Washington, D.C. at the end of August. Sanders and 30 other business association leaders have called on the mayor to resign.

But will a "no-confidence" vote by San Diego's business community translate to a negative impact on San Diego's economy?

There are conflicting opinions among local economists as to whether the mayor's problems will affect San Diego.
