Vice President Mike Pence Arrives in Coronado

Yesterday evening, Vice President Mike Pence arrived in San Diego. There to greet him was Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey. Mayor Bailey shared that, “The City of Coronado is working closely with our national representatives to address several important issues so we appreciate every opportunity to build the key relationships that will result in progress for Coronado and our region.”

One issue on Mayor Bailey’s agenda is pollution. He was in Honolulu on the first of this month to discuss this topic at The U.S. Conference of Mayors in calling for increased federal funding to tackle Mexico river pollution that plagues San Diego County beaches and other communities along the southern U.S. border. Read more about that here. Mayor Bailey has not shared if this was one of the items he spoke to Vice President Pence about.

From citizens with signs at Orange and Third and residents lining B Avenue to the helicopter circling over town most of the day, the arrival of the Vice President was noticeable.

The Vice President and Second Lady headed to U.S. Naval Amphibious Base Coronado and Naval Air Station North Island around 10 am this morning. The U.S. Coast Guard tweeted that “@VP is welcoming back the crew of CG Cutter Munro as they turn over 39K lbs of cocaine from drug seizures like this one from a semi-submersible off South America to federal agents.” Also on the Vice President’s San Diego agenda is a fundraising dinner this evening that is being kept closely under wraps.
