This event took place at 3990 Hicock Street near downtown San Diego at 1 p.m, said media representative Francis Barraza. Supporters of Faulconer’s re-election gathered around the new headquarters with blue campaign signs.

- Improved emergency response times to give faster support in less privileged communities
- Hired the first female police chief in San Diego history
- Increased the hours that libraries and recreation centers are open to the highest level in the past decade
- Created a year-round homeless shelter to provide a safe place for families and veterans
- Supported the growth and expansion of innovative companies and businesses
