Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s new-found neighborhood obsession dominated his Monday inauguration.
He emphasized how neighborhoods will drive his administration. He touted strategies to revitalize neighborhoods lacking smooth streets and ample grocery stores. Oh, and the whole thing went down at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation in the Encanto area, marking what Faulconer called the first inauguration ceremony held in southeastern San Diego.
If Faulconer’s inauguration speech sounded familiar, it should.
It was remarkably similar to the speech Bob Filner gave more than a year ago when he was sworn in as mayor.
