Alvarez Versus Gómez

Voice of San Diego Podcast show

Summary: This week, Andy's got the story of David Alvarez and his potential violation of city ethics law. The former San Diego city councilman, and now candidate for the state Assembly, worked for SDG&E before the mandated “cool off” period was over. Whether he was lobbying is the big question. This has led to a fiery campaign for Assembly District 80. Alvarez and the other Democrat seeking the seat, Georgette Gómez, have been dragged in political ads for their violations of public trust. We're going to recap some political history and talk about what it all means for the special election. Plus: Gov. Gavin Newsom's plan to help with gas prices. And local governments are so over COVID.
