San Diego Veterans Homeless Shelter Stays Open

Filner administration included keeping the Veterans and Downtown Homeless Emergency Shelter Tents opened year round. Now 350 San Diegans will be evicted on March 31, 2014 in 40 Days. The Tents will reopen in November 2014. Over 60+ San Diegans die every year due to a lack of basic shelter.

Last year, on April 6, 2013, McCormack Jackson tried to block Homeless Veterans Tents advocates from meeting with Mayor Filner at the first Saturday morning meetings to tell them his office staff was sabotaging efforts to fund solutions before the Monday April 8, 2013, 8 am morning evictions at the Veterans Tent in the Midway neighborhood.

Luckily McCormack Jackson's plan to block citizen access to the Mayor failed, and the Veterans Tents stayed opened Year Round for the first time ever, thanks to advocacy by David Ross the Waterman.

Questions Dog Bonnie Dumanis On San Diego Campaign Finance Probe

The Public Waterfront is managed by the San Diego Unified Port District (UPD), not the Mayor. The Public Waterfront is owned by the People of the State of California in Trust forever. It is illegal to build private luxury condominiums on Public State Tidelands. At the most only Condo-Hotels are allowed. Condo Hotel owners cannot live in the Unit for 6 or more month a year (50%).

Never even heard of a supposed war room. Where is the small leased office space did this war room exists? What did the war room do?

Former Mayor Filner promised Public Park and Open Space advocates a public Waterfront Park at the Navy Broadway Complex (NBC), not luxury condos like Miami. after Active Seismic Faults are Confirmed or Denied from the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal (TAMT) to the Airport. By our Municipal Codes fault buffer setbacks increase from 50 feet on each side to 400 feet on each side. In this fault buffer zone only Public Park and open space areas are allowed by Code.

Father Joe Coming Out Of Retirement For Namesake Charity

Great news. The City AND County of San Diego are in violation of the Federal Fair Housing and HEARTH Act based upon their failure to identify funding to end Veterans and Chronic Homeless by 2015, and all Homeless including Children by 2020.

The San Diego Regional Continuum of Care and all Non-Profit and Faith Based Community members are being suckered by Civic San Diego and City Financial staff

The $908 million in former Redevelopment Agency assets are being siphoned off into the City and County General Funds through the $13 million Housing Due Diligence Report (DDR) Payment and the $167 Non-Housing Other Assets DDR Payment.

Alvarez Takes First Step To Keep San Diego City Council Seat

In 45 days, on March 31, 2014, 350 San Diegans, including 150 Veterans, will be evicted from the two Homeless Emergency Shelter Tents in the Midway and downtown due to a lack of leadership on the City Council.

The easy way David can show leadership is to get our State Legislators to help negotiate with the DOF instead of Civic San Diego staff. This would move 100s of Million into the neighborhoods.

Another solution to keep the two Homeless tents opened year round is to force Civic San Diego to move the $7.8 Million Successor Agency distributions into the Low Moderate Income Housing Asset Fund (LMIHAF) per State law, instead of the General Fund.

San Diego City Council Postpones Disussion On Open Government Ballot Measure

City Attorney Goldsmith is trying to sabotage the City Charter Amendment for Open Government for the June 2, 2014 ballot.

http://docs.sandiego.gov/cityattorney...

The likely reason is that the City Attorney stated he will be bringing forth City Charter Amendments for the November 2014 ballot. And he wants to piggy back on Open Government which should pass without resistance.

http://granicus.sandiego.gov/MediaPla...

See Video Start Time 2 Hours and 39 minutes where the City Attorney is accused of dragging his feet, playing politics, and legal sabotage, so that the Open Government City Charter Amendment will not be on the June 2, 2014 ballot.

Gloria: San Diego Homeless Funding Should Be Redirected To Effective Programs

Great news on keeping the same FY-2014 level of $1.9 million from General Fund fund.

In addition to the $1.9 million General Funding contribution; the February 6, 2014 IBA Report Number IBA-14-6 on ROPS-6 and Inter-Agency Loan Repayment documents total loan repayments of $9.7 million will be available in July 2014. Of which $1.9 million goes into the Successor Agency Housing Asset Fund for the poor and homeless, and the remaining $7.8 million of Residual RPTTF goes into the General Fund. See Table on Page 4.

http://www.sandiego.gov/iba/pdf/repor...

Therefore, there is still another $1.9 million in undesignated cash. Approximately $686,000 that can be used to keep both Winter Homeless Emergency Shelters opened Year-Round.

Filner Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Gets 2015 Trial Date

McCormack Jackson waited exactly 6 months from her hire on December 20, 2012 to the Mayoral Staff meeting on June 20, 2013 to go after the deep pockets of the City of San Diego for an alleged incident that happened months before.

Six months is a special deadline because someone in the Mayor's office cancelled the mandatory sexual harassment training, which was scheduled, then cancelled and not rescheduled until after the 6 month deadline was passed.

She worked for months after Filner's resignation with no problems, then decided she was unable to work.
