Thoughtful Comments on District 3 Race

I decided that I wanted to give people who don’t have time to listen to everything our candidates for City Council think a clear reason for picking one person over the other. I do pay attention and, for reasons that may not seem altogether sensible, I spend the time to understand what issues impact North […] via San Diego City Council District Three Part II: My vote in this race — Understanding San Diego

Nov 23 – Monthly Meeting – Onwards and Upwards

We began the year at our January meeting discussing 2014 election prospects with Howard Wayne, Vice Chair, Central Area of the San Diego County Democratic Party. We’ll end the year at the Pt Loma Assembly (as we don’t have a December meeting) with Howard summarizing the results, discussing the repercussions, and looking ahead for 2016. A lot of Howard’s warnings for the national races turned out exactly as forecast, with low Democratic turnout leading to predictable results. San Diego County proved itself to be one of the redder parts of California with the statewide contestants losing in the County (other than the Governor’s landslide). Despite this Scott Peters won the 52nd by a higher percentage than he did in 2012 (thank you to Rebecca Taylor (@N0StoneUnturned), Tim Hanna and all of the club members who donated and volunteered time) by appealing to independents, moderate Republicans and younger voters. There were other bright spots: A supermajority on the Chula Vista City Council and elected a Democratic mayor — the first Latina mayor elected in the county’s history A seat (and a de-facto majority) on the Oceanside City …

Letter from Councilmember Ed Harris

Dear Friends, Being the Councilmember for District Two has been a unique and deeply rewarding experience for me, and one that I’ll never forget.  As I wrap up my council term next month, there are a number of people I would like to thank who have made these past seven months remarkable for me. I would like to thank Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer, the City’s leadership team, and the City’s 10,000 employees who strive every day to make San Diego America’s Finest City; my Council colleagues for their guidance and collaboration; and my staff who worked weekends and long hours to address quality of life issues for our neighborhoods by quickly and thoroughly responding to constituent concerns and requests. The community leaders and volunteers who sit on boards for planning groups, town councils, committees, and associations are deserving of my thanks.  Their work is often challenging and always time consuming.   I respect and appreciate these individuals for their engagement, their willingness to serve, and their dedication to improve our neighborhoods.   They are true …
