Mayor Kevin Faulconer will kick off a community engagement campaign Thursday with the first in a series of face-to-face events with constituents.
The new mayor is scheduled to speak about his vision for San Diego, then listen to concerns from the public and answer questions at a “Meet the Mayor” event from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the South Clairemont Recreation Center, 3605 Clairemont Drive. Clairemont is in the 6th Council District represented by Lorie Zapf.
The event is the first in a series of neighborhood meetings planned for each City Council district in the coming months, according to the mayor’s office.
“The best way to run the city is to hear directly from the people you serve,” Faulconer said in a statement. “I want to talk with community leaders and everyday San Diegans about what the city can do to make their lives and neighborhoods better. I know how busy people are so I plan to take the conversation to them.”
The mayor’s office says that once the goal of holding at least one meeting in each of the city’s nine council district has been reached, Faulconer plans to continue meeting with constituents in various neighborhoods on a regular basis.
Tomorrow’s event is free, and all are welcome to attend.
