mikeyknew Council chambers were packed today. EVERY SINGLE SPEAKER spoke in support of Todd Gloria as City Council President, including me. I am ashamed of our council that this was even necessary, and even more ashamed that they did not vote with the people who they represent. Almost 100 of us took time out of our Wednesday at 2:00 to tell them that we appreciate Todd's leadership, ability, and experience. We told them that we would like one more year of consistency in San Diego City governance. They ignored us, as a member of Todd's own party opposed him. This was a sad day for San Diego, a sad day for those of us who would like to believe in representative government, and a sad day for consensus.
Although I am currently upset and confounded by our new council president, I hope she does a good job. She has huge shoes to fill.

  •   thoughtsnmetsandjets Honestly Mike, I think Todd Gloria is a dedicated servant and has done a fine job representing district 3. I disagree with him on most political positions. I feel he is far too liberal. However on the local level that is not as important. There is an old saying, "There is no Democratic or Republican way to fix a pothole." 2w
  •   whitneybenzian A shame. 2w
  •   mellamonicole So crazy. Glad you were there to speak up. 2w
  •   whofarted I don't want to "like" this but I'm so proud of you for getting involved! Local politics are so important and Todd Gloria is a hero to this city!!! #istandwithtodd 2w
  •   ryanodo Props for speaking up. More people should get involved like this. 2w
  •   arianatoorani You go Glen Coco. 2w

mikeyknew This is pretty strange, because I'm definitely not one of those #allpumpkineverything types. I guess our palettes do evolve over time. Also, my dad's hair is awesome. #tbt 4w

mikeyknew Check out the bottom line of the card! I'm so excited to officiate my first wedding.
Also, apparently this is the first needlepoint @katrinawalt has ever done. Way to make me feel double honored! It looks amazing.
I love my friends, especially @kimmbel and @katrinawalt
