From the Reporter
What’s New
After redistricting, downtown is now part of the 3rd City Council District, which includes neighborhoods like Hillcrest that are the heart of San Diego’s gay community.
What It Means
Surrounding beach and Latino communities didn’t want downtown in their district because of its heavy political influence. LGBT leaders saw it as an opportunity to gain political clout themselves.
What’s Next
Already, LGBT leaders from uptown have met with downtown leaders to formulate strategies for solving problems both communities face, like homelessness, aging infrastructure and parking.
