AM Briefing from for January 27, 2014

San Diego’s City Council has a lot on its plate today. First this afternoon at 2:00 they are meeting about calling primary elections for the even numbered council districts, a ballot measure, and capital improvements… That means spending some money keeping things like the city’s roads maintained. Then at 6:00 tonight the council is meeting about the city charter. They want to make December 10th Inauguration Day. Currently Inauguration Day is 27-34 days after the election. It’s thought by officials that setting it to December 10th will give more constancy to the length of terms.

Neel Kashkari, a Republican gubernatorial candidate, is in San Diego today. He’s talking to supporters at the Ballast Point Brewing Company at 11:00 AM. 40-year-old Kashkari was an assistant secretary of the treasury for President George W. Bush.

It’s still way early in the California gubernatorial process. It’ll be interesting to see who the Republicans end up putting forward.

At 9:00 AM Sean Patrick Banks is in court. He’s accused of raping two women, one of which he met through a Christian dating web site. Today he’s in court for what’s called a “conditional exam”. This is the questioning of a witness that is a minor. I want to stress that we do not know how this minor is involved, or what the minor saw and heard. However that should all be made clear this morning in El Cajon’s courthouse.

And finally late this afternoon at 4:30 the San Diego Unified School District is telling parents about California’s new funding formula and how their schools and kids will be affected.
