“Congratulations to Kevin on his victory. Kevin and I worked together on many important efforts on the City Council and I know that he is committed to making San Diego a better place,” Peters said in a statement.

“I also want to congratulate David Alvarez, his campaign team, and his volunteers for a dynamic, energetic, and hard-fought effort; David has a bright future and will be a key partner in moving our city forward.

“Our city has long valued pragmatic, bipartisan leadership and it is my hope that we will continue that effort to improve the quality of life for every San Diegan. I look forward to working with Kevin, as we have in the past, and want to thank Interim Mayor Todd Gloria for his steady hand and solid leadership during this tumultuous period.”

Peters represents the 52nd district, which includes Coronado, La Jolla, Poway and much of central San Diego County.
