Filner's talking points...as illustrated by winning bingo cards

Three winning cards from CityBeat's third annual State of the City buzzword bingo

Last night, Mayor Bob Filner, as all mayors do, delivered his vision for San Diego in the annual State of the City address. And, as we did for the previous two speeches by Mayor Jerry Sanders, CityBeat distributed buzzword bingo cards to help folks follow along. (The concept: As the mayor speaks, you cross off keywords until you've got bingo. Major props to the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council for sponsoring the cards this year.)

Here's the video in full.  If you want a meatier breakdown, Voice of San Diego published two pieces, OB Rag put up a progressive analysis, and NBC's Gene Cubbison produced the seminal made-for-TV version (he was also the first recipient of this year's card). 

But if you just want a quick snapshot, here are three of the winning cards:

 KPBS reporter Katie Orr was the first one to call out bingo via Twitter. 

Political consultant and former press aide to Mayor Jerry Sanders Rachel Laing's Bingo. 

City Councilmember Lorie Zapf's communications advisor Alex Bell won in 2012. This year, she also scored a bingo.
