Todd Gloria, interim mayor, San Diego
The special election for San Diego mayor is only two weeks away, and Todd Gloria is wrapping up his tenure as interim mayor. Gloria told KPBS Midday Edition he's done his best to lead the city out of crisis.
"I am happy to do that, but we need to get back to normalcy," Gloria said. "I've tried to do my very best to clean up the mess, so the next guy who comes in can move the city forward and not look back."
Gloria stepped in after mayor Bob Filner resigned in the face of scandal. The special election will be held on Feb. 11. After that, Gloria will step back into his former position as President of the City Council and third district representative.
Gloria has been making monthly visits to our program, since he took over. This will be his last visit as interim mayor.
Since he joined us last month, Todd Gloria has delivered an ambitious State of the City address and led the City Council in approving a new infrastructure improvement program.
