With the approach of a city-council vote on whether to stage a $5 million special election this coming November for SoccerCity developers and mayor Kevin Faulconer’s hotel-tax hike, his honor’s top political brains are said to be working overtime. Both mayoral chief of staff Stephen Puetz — who has continued to moonlight in paid politics for the San Diego chamber of commerce and the Republican Party here — along with Faulconer’s top political guru, Jason Roe, are veterans of Revolvis Consulting, where Roe still works.

The well-wired campaign outfit at the heart of the Republicans’ city-hall machine has been well paid for its services. Faulconer’s mayoral campaigns of 2014 and 2016 paid Revolvis an eye-opening total of $1.29 million, campaign disclosure records at the city clerk’s office show.

The mayor’s Republican allies on the city council, on whom he is counting to deliver a winning vote, have also been major spenders at Revolvis, per campaign disclosure filings. Mark Kersey’s 2012 and 2016 campaigns paid the firm a total of $140,302. In 2014, fellow GOP councilman Chris Cate’s Revolvis tab was $776,074. Similarly, councilwoman Lorie Zapf’s 2014 campaign forked over a total of $187,596. Scott Sherman spent $598,383 on the services of Revolvis during his 2012 and 2016 races.
