District 4 Candidate Omar Passons Wants To Invest In Youth, Support Seniors
Most of the members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors have been in office for more than 20 years. That will change after this year’s election.
New supervisors will be elected in Districts 4 and 5 because of the addition of term limits for the board positions.
District 4 covers most of the central city of San Diego from La Jolla to downtown, from Ocean Beach to Encanto. It is currently represented by termed-out Supervisor Ron Roberts.
Attorney Omar Passons is running to represent District 4. He’s worked on community issues of public health and land use. He's a Democrat. The supervisors positions are officially non-partisan, but right now all five supervisors on the board are Republican.
Passons spoke with KPBS Midday Edition host Maureen Cavanaugh about his positions on some of the top issues in the race and why he is running for the seat.
Passons' candidate interview airs on Monday on Midday Edition.
