SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A former mayor of San Diego who resigned amid a corruption scandal urged current Mayor Bob Filner to step down Monday in an open letter published in U-T San Diego.
"Dear Bob, the time has come for you to resign as mayor of San Diego," wrote Roger Hedgecock, who left office in 1985 after he was found guilty of campaign finance violations. His convictions were later overturned on appeal.
"You have lost something that cannot be regained," Hedgecock wrote. "You have lost the bond of trust that must exist between at least a majority of San Diego city voters and the mayor. I lost that trust and I resigned."
