Uncertainty on the city's standing during the recovery was not found on the State of the City Address stage last night, at 6 pm, at the Balboa Theater downtown. Interim Mayor Todd Gloria stood firm on the city taking a long list of rebuilding steps this year, and outlined plans to end the period the city's long term work has been spoiled by below average city efforts and the discontent with behind doors politics in San Diego.
The audience that welcomed the Tijuana Mayor, California Senator Ben Hueso, and U.S. Representatives Darrell Issa and Juan Vargas heard Gloria guarantee the city will take steps to give citizens effective services and restore confidence in San Diego government, among both the public and the leadership. A city now fit to do its full work, during the year following former mayor Bob Filner's resignation, stands ready to strengthen the economy and grow jobs, he said. Government efforts will build up in every corner of the city.
Old recession limits on the city's efforts have given way. Convention center expansion work starts off the 2014 progress Gloria counts on. December plans for the kick off of the 2015 Balboa Park centennial celebration raise the goal for the rewards gained from the city's work.
