Big Changes, High Hopes For Sweetwater School Board This Election

The scandals involving the Sweetwater board of trustees began to unfold almost three years ago. Jill Galvez is a Chula Vista voter and former city council candidate. She said the entire district is still recovering from the humiliation.

“Our community has a black eye because of our crooked board members,” Galvez said. “It’s been an embarrassment, frankly, for the whole South Bay.”

Today hundreds of San Diego’s homeless will have a chance to get haircuts, flu shots, dental exams, and clothing among other things at the seventh annual Project Homeless Connect. The San Diego Housing Commission, Family Health Centers of San Diego, St. Vincent de Paul Village, and the Interfaith Shelter run the annual event. Organizers say they have 200 volunteers signed up but they need twice that.

Go HERE if you would like to help out.

The brother of a murdered naval officer will be arraigned today. 25-year-old Navy Ensign Jonathan “Jake” Tenorio was stabbed in his apartment on Sunday. His brother 21-year-old Zachary Tenorio called for an ambulance but was then arrested by authorities. Zachary was in San Diego to participate in a jiu-jitsu tournament. Jonathan is from Guam and is married to a Guamanian assistant attorney general and stepdaughter to a well-known former senator from the territory Frank Blas.

Also in court today, more officials from the South Bay School Board will be arraigned on corruption charges. So far 15 current and former members of the Sweetwater Union High School, San Ysidro school districts, and the Southwestern Community College District are accused of taking bribes in exchange for millions of dollars in construction contracts.
