« Redevelopment: Where do we now get funds for affordable housing?
« Embarcadero: Keeping the Embarcadero a place for citizens and tourists to enjoy our harbor views
« Human Trafficking: Do our students know how to keep safe from the predators who are seducing our young women into a nightmare life?
« Privatization of City services: What oversight is being built into the proposals to privatize our city services? What services will we be giving up in exchange for possible savings? What proof is there that there will be savings? Will the contracts be competitive and is there a way to go back to public control if these contracts are a "bad deal" for our citizens?
« Early Childhood Education: A coalition of agencies serving preschoolers is headed by the LWVSD and working to improve services and funding for quality education at the preschool level.
« Quail Brush Genco: An electric generating peaker plant with eleven 100 feet high stacks is being proposed to be built near Sycamore Landfill and on the edge of Mission Trails Regional Park. Rezoning of land is being discussed again at the Planning Commission; the League was there to testify against it. The City Council did not approve this proposal which goes onto state review.
On March 22, 2013, the PUC unanimously rejected the construction of a power plant near Mission Trails Regional Park after listening for two hours to many environmental groups in opposition, including the League of Women Voters of San Diego County. They said that San Diego needs to develop more renewable energy locally. It also would have been very costly to the ratepayers.
