Four of the nine seats on San Diego's City Council are up for grabs this year. But only one council district doesn't have an incumbent running: District 8 Councilman David Alvarez, a Democrat, is termed out.

Vivian Moreno is a council representative for Alvarez. She is one of three leading candidates seeking to replace him. All three are Democrats.

The district is geographically split, including Sherman Heights and Barrio Logan near downtown and Otay Mesa and San Ysidro along the border.

Moreno joins KPBS Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss her priorities for the district. The other two leading candidates will be interviewed over the next week.
