Mayor Filner's fiancee calls off engagement

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and his fiancee, Bronwyn Ingram, called off their engagement, it was announced Monday.

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. The email was first reported in San Diego CityBeat, the region's alternative newspaper.

She wrote in the email that a nonprofit she started after 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.

The couple had planned to marry in October.

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