Omar Passons ran a campaign to change how San Diego County addresses issues like homelessness and mental health — now, his job is to make the current county policies work.
Following a primary loss for a seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, Passons took a job as director of integrative services in San Diego County’s Health and Human Services Agency. In this role, he’s in charge of making sure the county’s health, housing and social services operate together to help people in need. Passons began his new role with the county on Nov. 9.
Passons joins Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss how he made the transition from candidate to county director.
