Alvarez, Faulconer Headed To Runoff In San Diego Mayor's Race

Peking_Duck_SD
Let's stay factual - Alvarez raised about $275K from individual donors and unions/independent committees invested about $1.5M.
Fletcher raised $916K from individual donors and independent committees invested about $878K.
Alvarez support might seem large, but it is a smaller portion of overall voting pool - but with deep pockets. His dependency on union money will turn off many voters.
From a party affiliation standpoint, the Democratic Party is about 40% of the electorate, followed by about 28% that decline to state, and 27% Republican, leaving 5% for other parties. Remember - these are just registration numbers, not who actually shows up to vote.
We better hope that the Democrats show up for the run-off election

Election Night: Alvarez And Faulconer Appear Winners, But Votes To Be Counted

sorry to say msuz12watch, but Alvarez's pull is not broad enough to get to 50%....you need to realize that there are at least 4 groups that vote, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and Decline to State....Alvarez will have a large problem getting votes from the last two in a run-off election, but Fletcher had a real chance

Alvarez, Faulconer Headed To Runoff In San Diego Mayor's Race

It is good that David Alvarez is excited about maybe finishing second in this election, because he is bound to finish second again in a run-off election. It is really a sad day for us democrats...

Fletcher's Mayoral Candidacy Creates Crack Among San Diego Progressives

Interesting title for this article. Should it read 'Alvarez's Mayoral Candidacy Creates Crack Among San Diego Progressives'? After all, David Alvarez entered the race after Fletcher was already a declared candidate? And isn't it Alvarez supporters who have been attacking Fletcher? I think this article is pointing fingers in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, there are those in the democratic party (Alvarez supporters, to be specific) that are doing their best to make sure that Faulconer gets elected.
I am hoping that San Diegans will understand that Kevin Faulconer will continue the long string of bad mayors in America's Finest City. Like many of his predecessors, he will be figuring how to make sure that big corporate donors continue to get lucrative contracts that are paid for by the citizens of this city. Enough already.

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Banned From San Diego Hooters Locations

I wonder what the editors at KPBS are thinking when they include this 'business promotion' in the news? I wonder if the tabloid presses would run this type of garbage article...I hope not. It seems like jumping on a band wagon has replaced serious journalism.

What City Hall Says About San Diego

I have a lot of difficulty with building a monument to SD city government, given City Hall's performance over the last 20 to 30 years. I think it would be better for our city government to turn some of the current site into open space (e.g a park), put appropriate zoning on the rest of the property, and sell it to the highest bidder. It certainly is valuable property. Then, I would build an efficient office building in Kearny Mesa or other location for city government, where land values are less expensive. I think the idea that city hall is for building civic pride or raising our spirits is pretty crazy.
I think that sometimes the politicians lose track of who's money they are spending. I know I can't afford their expensive habits anymore.
