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.

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.
