Last week, I wrote that Councilman David Alvarez, who’s running for mayor, had supported the construction of three Walmarts in his district.
That’s not true. There are three Walmarts in District 8, the area of South Bay neighborhoods Alvarez represents. The company built two of them since he’s been a member of the City Council. But the third has been there for some time.
I am hereby giving myself a false. The story’s been corrected.
But the fact check, like fact checks often do, has led to a complicated story. Alvarez’s team wanted me to know that he does not support Walmarts. Unfortunately, it’s a lot more complicated than that.
