Whitburn Unveils Economic Development Plan
Best of all, it's right here in Normal Heights!
Stephen Whitburn, along with School Board member presumptive Barrera and Congressman Bob Filner, will present plans for taking advantage of District 3's geographic terrain, proximity to downtown, and existing transportation infrastructure.
The idea is to make a place where green companies, start ups, and people like me, working in IT, Telco, and wanting to work close to home, can have a live/work environment that allows me to take advantage of Balboa Park, the beach, and all the rest of what makes San Diego a great place to live and work.
By rejuvenating the traditional corridors that trolleys once served, and finally investing Federal, State, and City resources into a transit system we can be proud of, Stephen Whitburn proposes something bold and noteworthy.
Join me there, 10 a.m. at 3931 El Cajon Blvd. That's tomorrow, Thursday October 29th.
It's right next to where the I-15 and El Cajon meet, where prostitutes now prowl at night, and business ought to be thriving if we could only elect honest and forward looking City Council members.
I could imagine teaching courses on El Cajon Blvd, helping out of work people gain new skills:
Maybe I'll be providing classes in San Diego after this election...I'm devoted to changing San Diego first, so help me make Normal Heights the kind of place we can all afford to live and work.
With people like Donna Frye and Stephen Whitburn finally given a voice in our city, maybe we can turn things around and invest in our communities, instead of downtown insiders.
See you there tomorrow morning. Also look for me at 6th and University tomorrow from about 7 o'clock to 8:45 in the morning. I'll be waving Whitburn signs and waving to drivers.
Honk if you want Whitburn.
