As reported by the San Diego Union Tribune: Some significant leadership changes are coming to San Diego’s City Council committees, where new legislation and policies get debated and shaped before reaching the full council for approval.
Council President Sean Elo-Rivera is increasing the number of committees from eight to nine and assigning new leaders to arguably the two most powerful ones: public safety and budget.
The increase to nine committees allows each of the council’s nine members — all Democrats — to chair their own committee, including incoming Councilmember Kent Lee (District 6), who will lead the Active Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Councilmember Joe LaCava (District 1) will remain chair of the council’s Environment Committee.
