Aired 2/5/14 on KPBS Midday Edition.

GUEST:

David Alvarez, San Diego mayoral candidate, San Diego city councilman

The race is getting down to the wire, with less than a week to go, and San Diegans are getting deluged with political ads and commercials. The candidates say there's a clear choice in this election — today you'll hear them outline why each believe they should be the city's next mayor.

From infrastructure to campaign ads, we hear from mayoral candidates Kevin Faulconer and David Alvarez for a one-on-one interview.

Kevin Faulconer lied, he is NOT at all interested in helping ALL people in San Diego "make as much money as they can." Without a living wage, the citizens of San Diego not only make less money for more work, but they can't spend money into the local economy, creating the multiplier effect that will raise all boats.

Kevin Faulconer is in the pocket of the rich business men and land developers. He want to maximize profits for them, and avoid spreading those profits among the people. Even though in the long run, creating self-sustaining citizens would actually increase even the fortunes of the rich.

Kevin Faulconer supports the kind of SUBSIDIZED "Affordable Housing" that uses PUBLIC MONEY to make UNaffordable housing, and thus profit the rich land developers. When the PUBLIC pays $500,000 for a 2 bedroom apartment, that is NOT AFFORDABLE. It is a profit center for rich land developers, with guaranteed profit margins and no risk. http://voiceofsandiego.org/2011/07/21/building-taj-mahals-with-taxpayer-money/

Kevin Faulconer wants to 'streamline' the government 'bureaucracy' for developers, so that the citizens will not have a chance for public comment, to require those who profit from Our Fair City to pay a fair PART of that profit for the right to develop, and thus benefit the very citizens off whom they hope to make so much money.
