Jan 25 – Monthly Meeting – Civic Engagement

2015 shows every sign of being a fascinating year for San Diego politics. In his State of the Union speech President Obama laid out talking points on national issues of growing importance to our San Diego communities – Tax Cuts for the Middle Class, Free Community College, Paid Family and Medical Leave, and Fast Internet Access.

We can’t control the national discourse but we can, and must, drive the local debate. For this month’s meeting we welcome local candidates who are setting the debate through their ongoing work with our local institutions and body politic. Rafael Castellanos Rafael was sworn in to the Board of Port Commissioners on April 15, 2013, to represent the City of San Diego. The Port of San Diego was created by the State Legislature to manage San Diego Bay and its surrounding waterfront land on December 18, 1962. It is the fourth largest of the 11 ports in California, and it has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in …
