Filner’s fiancée breaks off engagement

SAN DIEGO — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s fiancée, Bronwyn Ingram, has let it be known that their engagement is off.

In an email distributed Monday to friends and supporters, Ingram wrote that she was also stepping down as the mayor’s spearhead on homeless issues in the city, San Diego City Commissioner Nicole Murray Ramirez confirmed.

FilnerFianceeIngram wrote in the email that a nonprofit she started after Filner’s election, called Team First Lady, would be dissolved.

“I have broken off my engagement to Bob Filner and ended our relationship,” Ingram wrote in the email, as quoted by CityBeat.

“I have struggled with this decision as I really wanted to see the community projects we had initiated with such enthusiasm come to fruition,” she wrote. “I am extremely disappointed and heartbroken, both for what Team First Lady could have accomplished, and for me, personally; however, this is the only action I can take given the devolvement of our personal relationship.”

Filner’s office did not return a message seeking comment.

Ingram, 48, frequently appeared by the 70-year-old Filner’s side during the former congressman’s mayoral campaign but did not keep a high profile after he took office.

While the couple said they were engaged, wedding plans were never announced publicly.

The two met four years ago as part of their work duties. Ingram is a disability-claims analyst for the Social Security Administration.

    This is sad. That kind of behaver is wrong no matter who you are! Ugh. So he uses this words (smart) to try to gain people’s trust again. Really? He just needs to go, and yes appologize to each and every person he hurt. Just because he is major does not make him a better person then the rest, nor give him the right to act that way. I find that completely UNPROFESSIONAL! Yes he is the only one who can change this nasty behaver, but does he truly want too? Or will he just be better at hiding it? Thoughts to think off. This behaver doesn’t change over night, and I sure wouldn’t want to work with him harassing me in any way. So sad but it’s a good thing it came out sooner then later.
