It was a fiery week in the San Diego City Council chambers.
City Attorney Mara Elliott accused Council President Sean Elo-Rivera of trying to silence her. In doing so, she indirectly accused him of sexism, arguing her predecessors — all men — were held to different expectations than her by the Council.
City Councilmember Raul Campillo took a fierce tone with the development team chosen to take over the Sports Arena redevelopment project. Campillo was the only vote against the project. He pressed the developers on their experience with projects this size, allegations of wage theft, tax subsidies and more.
This week, we recap the drama and replay some of the highlights from this week in city politics.
Plus: NBA legend Bill Walton confronts the mayor on homelessness. And Elo-Rivera wants to talk about it.
