The City Council race for District 6 carries more weight than just the responsibility of representing Clairemont, Mira Mesa, Kearny Mesa and part of Rancho Peñasquitos. The Council majority hangs in the balance, as does Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s veto power.

So we took a little time getting to know the two candidates gunning for a seat on the dais. On last week’s show, we talked to Chris Cate to nail down where he stands on four major San Diego issues, like funding for infrastructure fixes and building the Chargers a new stadium.

This week, his Democratic rival Carol Kim joins Scott Lewis, Caty Green and Andy Keatts to discuss where she stands, and how her background in education factors into her plans for the city. Skip to 24:15 to hear the interview.

Show Notes

• Hero of the Week goes to Tijuana Innovadora, which showcases everything Tijuana has to offer through exhibitions and speakers. We’ve mentioned TJ is on a winning streak, and highlighted a few cultural high points at Wednesday’s Meeting of the Minds.

• Kevin Beiser, San Diego Unified’s district president who’s running for re-election to the board, is our Goat of the Week for a few reasons, including his spotty attendance record at school and, clearly worst of all, declining our invitation to come chat on the show.

• Is San Diego’s Convention Center fully booked? Our Fact Check this week reveals that the statement made by San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond is mostly true.
