| February 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

San Diego City Councilmember Todd Gloria, who is a third generation resident of District Three, has some existing and new territory to cover with the recent redistricting that occurred. Included in his coverage of responsibility are Balboa Park, Bankers Hill/ Park West, Downtown, Golden Hill, Hillcrest, Little Italy, Mission Hills, Normal Heights, North Park, Old Town, South Park and University Heights.

On December 3, 2012, his colleagues elected him to be the City Council President, which includes more responsibilities and influence for Gloria. However, Gloria says that his primary role is as “the city’s customer service liaison” for his constituents. He said that he knows and has a proven track record with the communities that he has been serving for the past four years and is looking forward to getting well versed and involved with the needs and goals of the new communities.

When asked about the dynamics and future course of city hall, due to a new mayor and staff, Gloria said that he was a strong supporter of Mayor Filner while he was campaigning and expects that there will be a changing culture. Gloria will continue to represent his constituents to the best of his ability and demonstrate a leadership role in the advance of public-private collaborations. He spoke of the downtown library, which will be opening soon with a school campus, that its success was definitely based on a public-private collaboration. He is looking forward to a new library for Mission Hills-Hillcrest that has a capital campaign in place for fundraising efforts.

Gloria also commented on Mayor Filner’s state of the union address, which he said he felt was “on point.” At the same time, Gloria said that he is here to support Mayor Filner when he is right, and challenge him when he is wrong.
