San Diego’s City Council isn’t attending Mardi Gras, but it sure does like the reason for the party.
The council voted 7-1 on Monday night to send Gov. Jerry Brown a letter opposing his plans to eliminate redevelopment agencies statewide.
“Redevelopment in San Diego does translate to jobs,” said City Councilwoman Marti Emerald. “It translates to safer neighborhoods. It translates to affordable housing and I would like to see that progress continue.”
