The Clairemont Dems’ Monthly Club meeting in June was a huge success!! Members gathered at 6:00 p.m. to socialize and grab a bite to eat from Boomerang’s. At 7:00 p.m., Club President, Dr. Jen Campbell, kicked off our meeting. Club member, Carol Kim, announced that she will be running as a Democrat for San Diego City Council District 6. Club member, Phyllis Mathis, expressed the displeasure of Clairemont residents regarding an attempt by developers to rezone an area of Clairemont near Genesee and Balboa Avenues – right across the street from residences – to allow for a drive-through restaurant open until 1:30 a.m. Finally, the keynote speaker of the evening, prominent local attorney, Pam Wilson, addressed the club. Wilson is a leader of the coalition called Scenic San Diego, which works to keep our environment beautiful. Wilson sounded the alarm bell about a billboard company lobbying our City Council to put commercialized billboards up in the downtown area.
