Good morning from Hillcrest.

After a week in the Northeast, a tasty turkey and a car battery failure this morning, The Agenda is back to give you your daily dose of San Diego political news.

  • Last week’s big news was Mayor Jerry Sanders’ proposed budget solution to the city’s $200 million deficit. The answers were primarily one-time fixes, which is not the response his group of advisors says is required. Here’s two dispatches from our Rob Davis.

The U-T takes a closer look at budget cuts, or lack thereof, from City Council offices.

And U-T opinion columnist Chris Reed says it could be worse than San Diego.

  • Our own Keegan Kyle takes a look at the city’s pledge to fill every pothole within three days. It doesn’t.
  • In Chargers stadium news, the U-T says environmental problems at the downtown site are so serious it could be a no-go.
  • The recall election against an Oceanside City Councilman is eight days away and mail ballots are coming in already. The U-T’s opinion page says that allegations against a Chula Vista mayoral candidate aren’t as serious as they first appear.
  • And an ex-firefighter union chief at the center of the city’s past pension scandal is suing the city over a benefit that was cancelled in response to concerns about it running afoul of federal tax laws.
