VOSD Radio: Friends Among Candidates
David Alvarez joins the VOSD hosts to talk about his real feelings about Walmart and whether he’s ever fired anyone. Plus, five (well, we got to four) things Kevin Faulconer’s done.
Voice of San Diego’s Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts were joined by Lisa Halverstadt to chat about the mayoral candidacies of Kevin Faulconer and David Alvarez, who are amiable colleagues on the City Council, from different sides of the aisle.
Lewis gave himself a false verdict in a fact check of an earlier column. Another fact check, this one about police stats, indirectly led the trio to give the Goat of the Week to Councilwoman Marti Emerald. Hero of the Week went to Walt Ekard, chief operating officer for the city, who is leaving his post in coming weeks.
Later in the show, Alvarez came on to answer questions, including whether he had ever fired anyone, and his true feelings about the Walmart stores in his district.
