Things got tense at City Hall this week. Earlier this week when four San Diego City Council members asked Council President Myrtle Cole to docket a discussion about declaring the land under and around Qualcomm Stadium “surplus” land. FS Investors, the group behind the SoccerCity initiative, then released a statement quoting a memo from San Diego’s City Attorney, Mara Elliot which warned city leaders not to campaign against the measure using city resources. City Attorney Mara Elliot did not take that well and even accused whoever leaked the document of committing a crime. On this week’s podcast, cohosts Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts breakdown the City Hall showdown over the continued SoccerCity initiative debate. Also on the podcast, a fact check of San Diego Unified Board member Sharon Whitehurst-Payne’s claim the district increased staffing even though enrollment was going down. (She was right). Hero of the Week San Diego Unified's Board of Education who did not accept the district plan of deleting emails after just six months. They also decided to create a committee to evaluate the district’s progress with graduation rates. Voice of San Diego has tried to understand what went into an especially impressive rate last year. Goat of the Week San Diego Association of Governments whose bet on interest rates swaps backfired and now taxpayers face a big potential liability.
