InfoBrian Maienschein is a candidate for City Attorney in San Diego. As an attorney with a proven track record of working to make San Diego a better place, he is committed to restoring trust to the Office of City Attorney and will work tirelessly to protect the public safety of San Diegans.

Brian was elected to the City Council in November 2000 with 63% of the vote, the most ever received by a non-incumbent, and was re-elected without opposition in 2004 to represent the San Diego City Council’s Fifth District. In the course of both elections, he received the highest number of votes ever cast for a City Council candidate. The Fifth District includes the communities of Carmel Mountain Ranch, Mira Mesa, Rancho Bernardo, Sabre Springs, Scripps Ranch, San Pasqual and Sorrento Mesa. He has received the highest amount of favorable votes ever cast in a City Council election.

During his first term in office, Brian developed an ordinance to preserve over 11,000 acres of the San Pasqual Valley from future development. He worked to insure that State Route 56 opened for travel July 19, 2004 and has made numerous infrastructure improvements throughout the communities of District 5.

Brian’s principles of government accountability to taxpayers, fiscal reform and commitment to our neighborhoods are rooted in his real-life experiences as a business attorney, community volunteer and his familiarity as a long-time resident of the I-15 corridor.

A successful business attorney who worked extensively with small business owners and high-tech companies, Brian understands the effects of excessive taxation and regulations on our growing economy. He will bring that same leadership to the Office of City Attorney.

As an I-15 resident, Brian has experienced firsthand the effects of poor transportation and land use planning. He is working to improve our quality of life by placing our neighborhoods ahead of downtown special interest groups. Ensuring that basic infrastructure needs and public safety facilities are put in place before development occurs is a fundamental requirement under Brian’s mission to protect neighborhoods and the quality of life we all enjoy in San Diego.

Brian also believes in the importance and effectiveness of volunteer efforts to help ensure our kids have the support and encouragement they need to succeed.

Brian served as Executive Director of Youth Court, an innovative program that has forged a partnership between law enforcement, schools and community groups to get first-time juvenile offenders back on track. For his work with this program, Brian received the 1999 District Attorney’s Crime Victims Rights Award. He has expanded this program so that San Diego Teen Court now teaches thousands of students about the consequences of juvenile crime.

A graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara and California Western Law School in San Diego, Brian’s proudest accomplishments are his two daughters Taylin, 5, and Brenna, 3.

In recognition of his hard work on behalf of our communities, Brian received the 2003 Legislator of the Year Award by the American Planning Association and was awarded the Soroptimist Environment Award by the Soroptimists of Rancho Bernardo. He was named by San Diego Magazine as one of the top 50 People to Watch in San Diego and was also awarded the Top 40 Under 40 Leadership Award by San Diego Metropolitan Magazine.
