Interview with Carol Alvarado

Rep. Carol Alvarado

The special election in SD06 to succeed the late Sen. Mario Gallegos is Saturday, January 26, and early voting for this election begins Wednesday, January 9. There are two serious candidates in this race, former County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia and State Rep. Carol Alvarado. I published an interview with Commissioner Garcia on Monday, and today I bring you one with Rep. Alvarado. Like Garcia, Carol Alvarado’s resume of public service is long and accomplished – three terms on City Council, Mayor Pro Tem, beginning her third term as representative for HD145. She too has been a strong advocate and ally for many progressive causes, and also boasts the support of numerous Democratic elected officials as well as police and firefighter unions. Here’s the interview:

Feel free to add your speculation here about who will finish first and whether or not there will need to be a runoff.
