His also established the San Diego Airport Authority and city-wide curbside recycling.
An adept political analyst, Howard told our club two years ago that a Trump path to victory was through the upper Midwest. That was exactly what happened the following November when Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin voted Republican. He came back in December to explain why that happened.
