September 29, 2018 (La Mesa) – La Mesa Councilmembers Bill Baber and Guy McWhirter are running on their records. Their challengers, retired Sheriff’s commander Dave Myers and physician Akilah Weber, are running on the slogan “Elect a cop and a doc.” East County Magazine sat down with all four candidates on our radio show, originally aired on KNSJ.
Key issues in La Mesa include affordable housing and development vs. community character, downtown revitalization, crime and public safety, public health, marijuana regulations, the city’s climate action plan, and a potential new library.
