San Diego City Council discussed last Monday creation of a museum for radical, anti-American Chicano ultra nationalism and socialism. According to my understanding, the “museum” still has no funding. David Alvarez had a amendment passed to create a Capital Improvements Project (CIP). Funding for it will be considered next year in 2019. A project with no funding does not mean much. Maybe it serves as a fig leaf for David Alvarez, who leaves office at the end of this year and has not been able to obtain funding for the museum.
Another report, distributed earlier, that funding of about $500k being approved for the Chicano Park museum appears to be in error. The Chicano Park Museum does not appear to have any funding at this point.
