Port Authority: Battle At The Waterfront

— Developers have been drooling over the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal, a sprawling industrial dock downtown, for more than a decade. It's 96 acres of cement covered with giant fuel silos and warehouses and is within walking distance of the convention center, hotels and San Diego’s bustling nightlife.

Special Feature Port Authority

In our series, Port Authority, the KPBS/I-Newsource Investigations Desk documents the long financial and political relationship between elected officials and newspaper owner Doug Manchester and his CEO John Lynch. Who stands to win and lose if a new stadium is built at the site of the terminal and why is John Lynch claiming to have the support of one of the San Diego mayoral candidates?

Now two businessmen determined to build a football stadium on the terminal have taken over the county’s largest newspapers and have positioned themselves politically to push it forward.

Question to Poll:

Why not pose the question as "Do you support public, waterfront related development at the site of the Tenth Ave. Marine Terminal and move shipping activities to the bigger National City Marine Terminal"?

The current question drags the unnecessary and project specific baggage of football and sports into the equation and will, of necessity, create non-responsive answers and bias the response into favoring leaving the cargo terminal in place.
