The State Of San Diego’s Inner City

Interim San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria will present the annual state of the city address Wednesday night.

Gloria is expected to assess San Diego's overall condition as the city moves on from the turmoil of the Bob Filner scandal.

But overall assessments can leave out a lot.

Under-served areas of San Diego are often not included in the big plans and policy agendas of city leaders. So the nonprofit Reality Changers will offer its own address, focusing on the state of San Diego's inner-city.

The issues range from the need for quality education to better-paying jobs for struggling San Diegans.
