AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for February 19, 2014

San Diego Police Officer Christopher Hays resigns his position pending his trial for sexually assaulting women during put-down searches. The four-year veteran of SDPD pleaded not guilty in his arraignment and is free on $130,000 bail. On Hays’s resignation his lawyer Kerry Armstrong says …

“He’s not going to resign because he’s done anything wrong; He’s extremely upset with the police department for not backing him in this case, and it’s really hurt him. He’s very upset about it and he thinks that his career in law enforcement is over because of these allegations.”

Hays maintains he’s resigning because he needs to focus on fighting the charges.

This afternoon at 1:30 Georgette Cervantes is being sentenced for pushing a man she was dating over a fence causing his death.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for September 4, 2013

At 10:00 Councilman Kevin Faulconer will announce his decision to run or not for San Diego Mayor. Yesterday both congressional candidate Carl DeMaio and councilman slash interim mayor Todd Gloria both bowed out. Everyone expects Faulconer to jump into the race with the support of San Diego’s Republican Party. The other two major names in the race are Nathan Fletcher and Mike Aguirre both Democrats. Aguirre said he will run on the FOX5 Morning News but is going to make his official announcement this afternoon.

It’ll be interesting to see if having two Democrats on the ballot will make it easier for Faulconer a Republican

The election is November 19th and if no single candidate get more that 50 percent of the votes the top two will have a run off.

At 8:00 AM the San Diego County Taxpayers Association is meeting for a breakfast forum and on the agenda California’s controversial Proposition 13. Prop 13 affects property tax rules. It makes it so that your tax burden is based on the value of the property at the time you buy your house. Because schools get their funding from property tax this that means in older neighborhoods the schools get less funding. However it also means that people who have lived in their homes for a long time won’t have to worry about having their taxes raised beyond their ability to pay.

In a related story the San Diego Unified School District Board of Education unanimously approved restoring the concessions that district employees made last year. The concessions were made to help with the district’s budget shortfall. But now the School Board thinks the money will be there and they are giving teachers a retroactive pay raise of 2%.

Today is the last day for this season’s horse races at the Del Mar Racetrack. First post is at 2:00 PM

And finally tonight at 6:00 the San Diego Chargers Girls will unveil this year’s swimsuit calendar. Some of the profits from the sale of the calendar will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
