Monday, Oct. 2, 2006 | I read Scott’s story about the mayor’s guys giving him a call regarding their option for the Broadway Complex. I am afraid that the negotiating tactics at City Hall have not gotten any better since the “strong mayor” took office. Can someone explain to me why he is called the strong mayor when he doesn’t even realize his own strength?

The strong mayor should inform Doug Manchester that if he thinks the city is going to pay him $20 million for property that should have never been his in the first place, then he should expect to pay it back in fee after fee which is something the city of San Diego is good at. With all of the red tape and public concern, his project might be completed by the year 2020 if he’s lucky. All the strong mayor has to do is get Bruce Henderson on his side. Between the lawsuits and the permit process, Doug Manchester will be bankrupt in no time. He will beg the city to take back the land that belongs to the people of San Diego.
