VOSD’s Friday roundup of the past week’s news in brief, featuring interviews with special guests and more.

On April 19, we hosted the second forum in our "Wonks Unite!" series. We discussed how San Diego's transforming, what it means, and what our region will look like in the future.

On the panel:

Adrian Florido, neighborhoods reporter for voiceofsandiego.org. Adrian has been writing about the complex racial and ethnic changes in San Diego.

Midori Wong, chief of staff of the 2010 Redistricting Commission, which is charged with redrawing voting districts to account for the latest Census numbers.
