In The Pocket: The Price of Getting Elected Mayor Of San Diego

When one looks at the size and number of direct mail pieces sent by the Lincoln club and other business supporters of Faulconer it is indeed the pot calling the kettle .... In terms who is spending the most money.

Jacobs On Plaza De Panama Plan: 'It's Over'

Twells is obviously out of touch with reality. SOHO only represents part of the majority of the public that opposed the Plaza de Panama project. The project was fiscally irresponsible and historically destructive. At all of the Balboa Park Committee meetings over 80 percent of the attendees opposed the project.

Jacobs On Plaza De Panama Plan: 'It's Over'

What has been overlooked is that SOHO agrees with the main concern that is removing parking from the Plaza de Panama. That conforms to the long studied Master and Precise Plans and would not add the three unneeded structures (bypass bridge, connecting road and parking garage) to the $240 million dollars of maintenance in arrears in the park. Sadly the parks museums overlooked the marketing value of tourists and tourist buses being able to preview the Plazas. The IBA's report pointed out the flaws in the revenue from the proposed parking garage and the impacts it would have on our public services General Fund. The council members could each donate a small amount from their district funds to remove the parking from the Plaza de Panama.

New San Diego Library Still Needs About $25 Million

In the 14 months the Foundation has only averaged $500 thousand per month. With only three month to go they have to collect on the average $8.5 million per month to reach the deadline...good luck.

Of course they could reapproach the prior $20 million donor Irwin Jacobs and suggest to him rather than wasting the $20 million at Balboa park on the hazardous, history defeating, unneeded bypass bridge, its connecting road and the underground garage packed with safety concerns instead donate that additional $20 million to the new downtown Schoolbrary (A.K.A. the new downtown Daytime Homeless Shelter.)
