This year’s Politifest saw a smaller crowd than 2011 as people came to partake in some local political activity. The event, which ran Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2:30 a.m., showcased dozens of booths at the Ingram Plaza in Liberty Station, as well as debates between mayoral candidates Bob Filner and Carl Demaio, and also candidates for the San Diego Unified School District board.
While I missed the mayoral debate, Frank Gormlie reports that Demaio presented himself “as crazed as he ever was.” Gormlie says the quote of the day came from Filner: “Reform that Carl wants is real estate for Manchester.”
In addition to Gormlie, the San Diego Free Press booth was manned by Doug Porter, Patty Jones and myself. We sold several t-shirts and would like to thank all those who stopped by and showed their support for us. We couldn’t do this without you!
