San Diego election news for the new year from KPBS

While I'm keeping myself warm by visiting KPBS in San Diego, California, I may as well keep posting stories from there.  Here are two about the special mayoral election that I originally included in Overnight News Digest: Science Saturday (Winter Storm Ion) on Daily Kos.

KPBS: Kevin Faulconer endorsed for San Diego mayor by life-sciences trade group

The holiday stand-down in the San Diego mayoral race ended Thursday when the trade group for Southern California's life-sciences industry endorsed San Diego City Councilman Kevin Faulconer.

"It's clear that Kevin Faulconer has the proven experience to lead City Hall and understands how to create more good-paying jobs in the life sciences so more San Diegans can succeed," said Joe Panetta, president and CEO of Biocom.

"At a time that other regions make regular trips to San Diego to try to recruit local companies to relocate, Biocom believes it is critical that the city of San Diego has a mayor who understands the importance of the life sciences and is committed to support its continued growth," Panetta said.
KPBS: Poll workers needed for San Diego mayor runoff election; Prop. B in Solana Beach

In San Diego, a runoff election will determine who will finish the term of ex-Mayor Bob Filner, who stepped down Aug. 30. San Diego City Councilmen David Alvarez and Kevin Faulconer won the most votes in the primary election.

Solana Beach residents will vote on Proposition B, a ballot measure that would allow special use permits to be issued for the Fletcher Cove Community Center.

According to the registrar's office, there will be 573 polling places in San Diego and eight in Solana Beach.
Stay tuned for more until the third full week of February, when the election will be held.
