Our featured speaker for May’s Zoom meeting is Assemblymember and SD City Mayoral candidate Todd Gloria. Asm. Gloria will speak on San Diego/California’s response to COVID-19, about his campaign for Mayor, and about his plans for the City once elected into office. As our endorsed candidate, we’ll also discuss how we can assist the Todd Gloria for Mayor campaign as a Club. There will be time for Q&A as well.
We will also have club member Jordan Beane on to speak about the City’s new Slow Streets initiative, which went live on Diamond St. in PB on April 30. Here’s a good article on Slow Streets and what else the City is doing to boost mobility, make social distancing easier, and prevent the spread of coronavirus: https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/politics/story/2020-04-29/san-diego-will-partially-close-some-streets-starting-thursday-to-boost-outdoor-recreation-space We’re looking forward to seeing everyone next week!
