VOSD Podcast: Faulconer the Peacemaker
Our mayor’s peacemaking approach to running things and an audio tour of a few local podcasts.
This week, they follow up on and talk about the different forms leadership often takes, especially in politics. Lewis backtracks a bit on the labels of cowardice or genius and puts Faulconer firmly in the category of the “peacemaker” type of leader, one who watches situations from the outside and waits for the right opportunity to jump in and pacify all parties.
Also on the podcast, Lewis and Keatts bring up Jess Durfee, chair emeritus of the local Democratic Party, who sent out a memo to other members of the Central Committee, alarmed at the “right wing money” being paid to District 3 City Council candidate Anthony Bernal. The memo mentions Mitt Romney’s presence in the city as possible evidence of a growing right-wing force in San Diego.
This Week in the VOSD Podcast Network
There’s a lot to unpack when it comes to the topic of education. Good Schools for All, our new education podcast, will approach the topic with the hope of helping listeners navigate current trends, big-picture problems, questions of equity and quality in education and more.
VOSD’s Scott Lewis and Laura Kohn, executive director of the Education Synergy Alliance, are co-hosting the podcast. Here’s Lewis on what to expect: “We hope to have some fun, do some interviews that will make us all think and highlight not only what we need to work on in San Diego, but programs and educators that are excelling.”
