As city workers spread asphalt over a bumpy patch of road in Point Loma in March, a television news camera focused on City Councilman Kevin Faulconer, who was watching the crew nearby.
“If there’s a pothole that’s been bugging you, call the city’s pothole line number,” Faulconer told the camera. “We’ll send a crew out in about four to five days and get it fixed.”
That night, Faulconer’s promise appeared on 10News. He assured San Diegans their potholes would be addressed within days. They just needed to call the city.
