Last Monday, the San Diego City Council voted Sean Elo-Rivera as its new president, after a surprising vote which saw Dr. Jen Campbell ousted from the position after just one year.

Elected to the council last year, Elo-Rivera represents San Diego’s District 9, encompassing areas such as City Heights, the College area, and Southcrest.

City Council President Elo-Rivera joined Midday Edition on Wednesday to talk about his vision for the council as he settles into his new role.

"I see us as having the potential of being a really strong council that is transparent to the community, that's collaborative with one another, and makes well informed, responsible decisions that leads to the improvement of San Diegans lives," he said.
