Were you there at our October meeting? Maybe I missed seeing you? It was a treat to hear our October guest speaker, former City Manager Jack McGrory, explain about the proposal for using the Mission Valley land now occupied by the football stadium to expand San Diego State University. I hope that all of you that are registered to vote in San Diego will have become familiar with the competing proposals for use of this land.

And, I hope that you all are getting prepared for voting on or by November 6th; there seem to be a lot of important issues at stake in this election. Our speaker for our November 13th meeting, Carl Luna, will very likely have some useful insights about how the election went and what will be the immediate, if not longterm, results. We will also be voting for REA Board members at the November meeting; nominees include Brad Jacobsen, Karen Butler, Mary Ann Stepnowsky, and Dick Wilken. I hope that you will be able to attend.
