City Council District 4 Special Elections

On March 26th voters in San Diego’s District 4 will be casting ballots for a new representative on the City Council. The special election was scheduled after Council President Tony Young resigned last year to take a job as CEO of the San Diego Chapter of the Red Cross.

Around the same time as District 4 voters are casting ballots, City Council will begin hearing and voting on a newly drafted medical cannabis ordinance.
