If elected as San Diego’s next mayor, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis promised to donate her salary to help fund education programs.

Dumanis, who has served as the county’s top cop for eight years, issued the pledge Tuesday asking others to do the same.

“America’s Finest City deserves to have America’s Finest City Schools,” Dumanis said in a written statement.

Along with the offer to donate an annual salary of about $100,000 after taxes, Dumanis proposed eight key reforms to help improve the financial stability of the city’s troubled school system.

Among her suggestions, expanding the San Diego Unified School board to nine trustees, adjust the length of the school day if necessary and offer more charter school options for parents.
