Scheduling Alert - San Diego

April 8 - San Diego City Council District 6 debate at Clairemont High School at 7:00 p.m. I will be covering and asking the following question, if allowed: "What action will you take that will save taxpayer dollars but will be opposed by the employees unions?" Four of the five candidates in the race will be there. See my earlier post on the candidates here. So far, the candidates are not impressing me. Kim Tran has not responded to my request as to why she is not participating, but a commenter, who seems to be working for/with Kim had this to say in the comments:
Most community organizations are comprised of Democrat and or Republican Partisans. Kim understood early on after she was not invited to the North Chamber candidate forum that these venues were not friendly to her campaign or any other campaign not funded by the local County Parties.
My personal opinion is that candidates have to get in there and slug it out, no matter what. This is going to be a different election year and I think that if Kim is truly the outsider candidate, she has a great chance, but she needs to make the case. I am inclined to support her, but I don't have enough information and her lack of participation in the debate isn't helping.

April 11 - Brad Dacus, founder of Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) will be speaking at Clairemont Christian Fellowship (4570 Mount Herbert 92117) at 10:30 a.m. PJI has defended family and religious freedom though out the western states. Nice discussion of their work that prevented Rancho Cucamonga from shutting down a home Bible fellowship here. Mr. Dacus will be available at 9:00 a.m. to answer questions on religious freedom and family rights issues. I will cover this event.

April 15 - Tax Day Tea Party protest at the Midway Post Office at 3:00 p.m. I see there is a suggestion to start at Rosecrans and Midway where there will be a lot more traffic. Plenty of time to stop in and protest since folks will be dropping off there tax returns until midnight. Unfortunately, that might include B-Daddy. Sarah wants you to come decked out in your finest protest gear. Depending on how my taxes are going, I may provide coverage. Maybe I can convince the mighty Waynok to get some more video.
