BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast with David Alvarez

Listen above or on iTunes HERE

This time around we sat down with one the latest mayoral candidates, David Alvarez.

David is the city councilman for District 8.

Alvarez Podcast Recoding Pic

He is the son of a farm worker and grew up in one of San Diego’s toughest neighborhoods, Barrio Logan. He met us at his campaign headquarters which is also his garage. The soft-spoken Alvarez is confidante he’s going to win this and is trying to cast himself as the “new normal” or “new typical” face of San Diego.

It was enlightening and interesting.

He promises to fight hard and loud.

But you be the judge.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for September 5, 2013

Syria’s civil war will hit home for San Diegans today. San Diego Veterans for Peace have a protest planned for tonight from 4:00 to 6:00. They are going to hang banners off of the 6th Ave Bridge over the I-5 freeway in downtown protest potential American military strikes in Syria. They say “With no UN endorsement, no NATO endorsement, no support from England, no Arab-League or international approval, now (if ever) is not the time for the United States to get involved”

At 9:00 this morning La Mesa Police will announce a $90,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a freeway shooter. Xusha Brown Jr was riding in a car going east on the 8 freeway near the 125 interchange when someone pulled alongside him and shot into the car fatally injuring Brown. La Mesa Police believe that other drivers on the freeway at that time must have seen the incident and they hope the reward will entice them to come forward.

At 10:30 AM San Diego’s interim mayor Todd Gloria along with its former mayor and CEO of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce will announce several new parts of the Miramar Air Show. The air show generates about $17 million for local economy and San Diego politicos have been trying to find a way to use some of that to keep the airshow going after part of the funding for the show was cut because of the federal budget sequestration. The air show will go one this October 4th and 5th with some changes. It remains to be seen if the money can be raised to bring any or the cut flight demonstration teams. But there will still be plenty to look at and do. Like nightly concerts, a run/walk, drag racing, and family bike ride.

And finally tonight at 4:30 the Chargers are giving media a special preview of all the new food on offer at Qualcomm Stadium. It’s all in honor of tonight’s first official NFL game between the Denver Broncos and the World Champion Baltimore Ravens. Kickoff is at 5:30 PM
