With Public Comment becoming more of an institution at voiceofsandiego.org I can begin making these introductions shorter.
Public Comment is our weekly take on the San Diego City Council agenda. We link to all the agendas, briefly highlight an issue and invite readers to weigh in with their thoughts.
