Statement from San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria on the recent sexual harassment allegations involving Mayor Bob Filner.
“Sexual harassment is a serious matter, and these allegations deserve a response. San Diegans need to hear from the Mayor soon.
“People must be treated with respect and are right to expect a workplace that is free of harassment and intimidation. I offer my assurance to any person who may have been harassed that their claims will not be discounted should they come forward.
All applicable administrative and legal protocols will be followed by the City.
“While this matter continues to unfold, my City Council colleagues and I will remain focused doing the people’s business and running an efficient and effective municipal government.”
