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 January 16, 2013

Yesterday in anticipation of today’s gun control announcement by Obama and Biden many of San Diego’s politicians and law enforcement issued their support.

San Diego’s Police Chief William Lansdowne came out in support of more gun control saying to FOX5 San Diego “Stricter back ground checks, a ban on assault weapons, and a data base that tracks guns, needs to be the starting point”

Also San Diego Counties Southernmost city Chula Vista passed a resolution aimed at reducing gun violence. And earlier this week Del Mar city officials decided to ask for an end to the Del Mar Gun Show.

San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency says four more San Diegans have died from the flu. That brings the total to six. Officials say the best protection against the flu is the vaccine. They also say to be sure and wash your hands toughly, use hand sanitizer, and to stay away from sick people.

And the Chargers have a new Head Coach. Mike Mcoy was hired yesterday. He’s leaving his job as Offensive Coordinator with the Denver Broncos. McCoy was chosen from a final group of five candidates.

The team ended their 2012 season Sunday with a 7-9 record, missing the playoffs for the third season in a row.

“My only goal is the Super Bowl, and that is why I have decided to move in a new direction with both our head coach and general manager positions,” Spanos said. “I am committed to our great fans, and we will…
