If you care about city of San Diego politics, communities, schools and other local issues, you won’t want to miss the election coverage here at voiceofsandiego.org Tuesday night.
Here’s what you’ll get from us: The most focused, in-depth coverage of the San Diego city and district elections around. Remember, we’re a local-only publication, so we leave the presidential and statewide stuff to others in order to devote our focus to the core quality-of-life issues in San Diego.
In this election cycle, that means:
- The fascinating race for city attorney between Mike Aguirre and Jan Goldsmith.
- The battles for three City Council seats that will decide the make-up of that body for years.
- Propositions that could put a gigantic concrete deck on top of the 10th Ave. Marine Terminal, kick booze off the beach once and for all, raise taxes to fund fire fighting efforts, and put more of the existing tax money back into Mission Bay Park.
- The $2.1 billion school bond, Proposition S, that would raise funds for wireless connections and school construction, as well as elections in three of the five school board races.
- The trademark analysis and insight (and maybe even a little snark, if you’re lucky) of columnist and political blogger Scott Lewis.
Make sure to check back here throughout the night. Our reporters will be at Golden Hall downtown and will be reporting back throughout the night with the latest updates and election night vignettes in our blog Election Central. After everything’s decided, we’ll have the full stories complete with context and analysis on what happened and why.
And be sure to check out our 2008 Election homepage, chocked full of all of our complete election coverage.
