A week after the June Primary Election, results show that I didn’t quite make it on to the Central Committee.
Although, there’s a little less than 18,000 ballots left to count throughout the county, I’m certain to gain more however, whatever remaining ballots are left won’t be enough to flip the results in my favor. It happens. Out of 17 candidates, I squarely ended up in the middle of the pack.

Let’s follow Mayor Jerry Sanders’ lead and work to get our city back on track!
Dear San Diego friends and family:
The Mayoral election is this Tuesday, June 5th. My friend Omar Passons and I took the picture below because we wanted people to see that Nathan Fletcher has already caused many to set aside partisan politics and help you answer the question: Why is Nathan Fletcher the right candidate for Mayor?
As President of the Clairemont Town Council, it’s an honor to help provide support and guidance to the Council’s Garden Tour Committee, which works to organize the annual Clairemont Garden Tour — a fundraising event for the Council that helps fund our community improvement grants.
This year, an Expo was added to the day-long event located at the beautiful SDG&E Energy Innovation Center at 4760 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
Thanks to our main sponsor this year, Janett Lewis, she was able to capture much of the event in the following YouTube video — featuring interviews with homeowners, Garden Tour Committee Chair Dana Sortwell, and myself.

As do I. Continue reading

Much like Goddard’s well-established Political Wire (a site I admittedly check out everyday), which provides the latest in national political news, whereas Wonk Wire provides an up-to-date avenue on the latest news and tidbits on national public policy. Congressional staffers, policy advisors, and think-tankers can rejoice in this site, for sure. Continue reading
