In the latest edition of VOSD Radio, Scott Lewis and Will Carless break down what happened in last week’s election:

• Democrat Bob Filner won the race to become San Diego’s new mayor and why Lewis thinks Republican Carl DeMaio didn’t have a chance to win.

• The Democrats’ supermajority in the state Legislature

The statewide Proposition 30 tax hike will keep San Diego Unified School District’s school year from getting shorter, but the district’s still facing a budget deficit next year.

• Incumbent Sherri Lightner’s win in the District 1 race keeps the City Council majority in Democratic hands.

• Marne Foster joins the San Diego Unified school board, and John Lee Evans keeps his seat.

Plus, find out why VOSD Radio named new Poway Unified school board member Kimberley Beatty as the Hero of the Week and top DeMaio strategist Jason Roe as the Goat of the Week. Listen here.
