Above: An official ballot for the California Gubernatorial Recall Election is shown. Aug. 16, 2021.

With one week left for voters to weigh in on whether or not Gov. Gavin Newsom will complete his term, we talk to UCSD Political Science Professor Thad Kousser about the current outlook. Plus, in Imperial Valley, the mostly Latino electorate swung for Donald Trump in the last election, what does that mean for Newsom’s recall election? Plus, land-use planners from Southern California and Tijuana are holding a conference on how a changing climate will determine future development. Also, San Diego is supposed to move away from car-centric planning, but two recent street projects show the city often works against its own objectives. And, three San Diego nonprofits have launched California’s first grant-based home buying assistance program specifically for Black people using $1.25 million in seed money. Finally, an excerpt from the second part of Cinema Junkie’s tribute to Indian Cinema, Hooray for Bollywood.
