A “goat award” for promoting a faster way for San Diegans to report potholes? City Councilman Kevin Faulconer has a track record of delivering results to improve city streets, including passing legislation to streamline road repairs. The city once pledged to repair potholes within a few days. If it’s true that the city’s Street Division is taking weeks to repair a pothole, Faulconer believes it’s a problem — and it must be solved. Promoting the pothole hotline is the right thing to do. This “goat” should be put out to pasture.
Matt Awbrey is the communications director for City Councilman Kevin Faulconer and an audit committee consultant.
