Authors of "Paradise Plundered" to speak at Tuesday's Hillcrest Town Council meeting

SAN DIEGO -- As the city tries to recover from the financial troubles which have led some to coin San Diego as “Enron by the Sea”, a trio of authors recently released a book called Paradise Plundered, which examines the events that led to the fiscal crisis.

Authors Steven P. Erie, Vladimir Kogan, and Scott A. MacKenzie will be the featured guests at the Tuesday, Oct. 11 meeting of the Hillcrest Town Council (HTC) and discuss their book, which they say mixes policy analysis, political theory and history, to explore and explain the unintended but largely predictable failures of governance in San Diego.

Hillcrest residents are encouraged to attend HTC meetings, which are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8 pm.

Founded in 2007, the HTC says that it works to provide a voice and enhance the quality of life for Hillcrest residents -- both renters and homeowners -- while supporting actions that benefit the neighborhood.

Other discussion topics will include an updates on community gardens, Hillcrest Business Association sidewalk zoning enforcement and information about Car2Go. Residents with other concerns will be given the opportunity to present them to the group during the public comment section of the meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Joyce Beers Uptown Community Center, located along Cleveland Ave. in the Uptown District Shopping Center.
