To all our friends in labor and the community who worked hard to elect David Alvarez as mayor of San Diego: We did not win the day but we were still part of an historic effort to elect not just San Diego’s first Latino mayor, but someone who would have been the most progressive mayor in our city’s history. We stood on principle for a better San Diego than business as usual, and no matter what we might hear anyone else say, standing on principle is the most important thing in the final analysis.
Our student interns did an amazing job. Nearly everyone who came in contact with them and saw them in action during the course of this campaign was impressed with their work ethic, perseverance, and idealism. We believe we succeeded in in our goal of developing the next generation of union activists.
