Evening Edition

Aired 10/10/13 on KPBS Midday Edition.

GUEST

San Diego City Councilman Kevin Faulconer is a candidate for mayor. He has represented San Diego's Council District 2 since 2006.

Transcript

We continue a series of interviews with candidates for San Diego Mayor.

The special election on Nov. 19 is set to choose a successor to serve out the term of former Mayor Bob Filner.

There are 10 candidates who have qualified for the ballot. A recent 10News/Survey USA poll found the top four candidates to be, in alphabetical order: Mike Aguirre, David Alvarez, Kevin Faulconer and Nathan Fletcher.

Today, we'll speak to San Diego City Councilman Kevin Faulconer about why he's running for mayor and his priorities for the city.

Faulconer has been on the city council longer than any of his fellow council members. He's represented District 2 since 2006.

Faulconer has received a number of endorsements, including from the San Diego County Republican party, the Chamber of Commerce and from former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders.

Kevin Faulconer is my councilperson, and I hope he is NOT elected Mayor, because his office doesn't even respond to constituents in the East Village now, much less address our concerns. Do we really want him to ignore all of San Diego? I vote no!
