Public Doesn't Get Full Story on Port's Maritime Losses

I tend to agree with the previous posting. The Port doesn't use taxpayer money, so what does Councilmember DeMaio get all up in arms. Beyond that, most of the San Diego Tidelands are in Councilmember Faulconer's district. And beyond that, they are State Tidelands.

As a former Executive Director of the SD Port Tenants Association, I can say with some degree of confidence that the Tenants support the Maritime Industry as a vital part of the Ports' charter. The real estate revenue for Shipyards, Boat Yards, Marinas, Harbor Excursions and the like are, in my view, revenues that are most correctly applied to the maritme department.

No mention was made of the cruise ship industry which may be a break even for the Port (my guess...who knows it might even make $$), but is certainly a money maker for many of the Port Tenants an,d other non-tidelands businesses as well.

Now if you want to talk about Qualcomm....but bashing the Port is always more fun.
