The afternoon docket is busy today with two sentencings and two arraignments of note all at 1:30 this afternoon.

In Vista’s courthouse 19-year-old Judd Liulamaga pleaded guilty to being one of five men that robbed several people outside a San Marcos house party. Liulamaga is looking at up to 13-years in prison. Of the four men reported to be his accomplices two have been convicted. 20-year-old Mautofu Maiava got 75-years in prison … he got the extra time because of prior robbery conviction. 19-year-old Johnnie Edward got 32-years for robbery, assault, gang and gun charges.

She fought him off and he drove away. Authorities arrested him the next day at the Viejas Casino on an unrelated charge and were able to link him to the assault because of surveillance video.

We Could All (or most of us) Be Wrong Still Votes To Count in San Diego

Mayoral Can OTS

With 34500 mail-in and provisional ballots left to be counted many are calling the mayoral election a victory for David Alvarez and Kevin Faulconer.
The mail-in ballots that are left to be counted are ones that voters dropped off at the polling place and the provisional ones are usually from people that voted at the worn polling place.

Those ballots need to be counted by hand.

Now the question remains are these voters like the rest of the voters that were counted or are they different somehow.

Personally I bet the numbers are going to stay roughly the same … but you never know.

Follow the San Diego Registrar of Voters for the up to the minute results.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for November 20, 2013

The first election for San Diego Mayor is over.

The results are …

Nathan Fletcher got 49,645 votes and that amounted to 24.30%.

David Alvarez got 52,283 votes or 25.59 percent

And Kevin Faulconer walked away with 89,043 votes or 43.58%.

Because no single candidate was able to get more than 51 percent of the votes Kevin Faulconer and David Alvarez face each other in a run-off election early next year.

It was a hard fought but mostly collegiate campaign. Now if Alvarez is able to take in Fletchers voters he could win and be the next mayor. However if Faulconer is able to convert some of Fletcher’s Democratic voters to cross the isle then he could win.

It going to be an exciting next few months.

Health care workers at the many University of California hospitals and clinics are holding a one-day picket all across California. Picketers accuse the U.C. system of unfair labor practices and furthermore they say that patient care is being used a “bargaining chip” by management.

The University of California and the union have been in negotiations for nearly 18-months now. Here in San Diego they’ll be at the University of California San Diego campus just off of 9500 Gilman Drive at 8:30 AM. Then at 9:30 AM they’ll be at the UC San Diego Medical Center Thornton Hospital at 9300 Campus Point Drive. And at 10:00 this morning then again at noon picketers will be making their point in front of the UC San Diego Medical Center Hillcrest at 200 West Arbor Drive.

Growing San Diego’s biotech industry is what Interim Mayor Todd Gloria is talking about at 10:00 this morning at the San Diego Convent5ion Center. He’s also going to announce the return of the Bio International Convention to San Diego next year.
