This is the start of our General Election work to elect Democratic candidates for District 2, and across the city and county. Don’t sit home and think of it as a month off from our regular political meetings, think of it as a chance to meet voters and ask them what they’re concerned about.

Or are they concerned about the local environment, or short term vacation rentals?  Are they up in arms over affordable housing development in Point Loma, or the proliferation of brightly colored bicycles? As well as enjoying political conversations at the booth, you’ll get the chance to sample the delights of the fair. Four Stages Of Continuous Music – here’s the line up Chili Cook-Off – starts at 11:00 …
