Friday, Jan. 12, 2007 | Greg Bloch’s letter is critical of my efforts to clean up San Diego politics and increase public participation in the city’s future. I oppose the Manchester Broadway Complex project because it is second-rate and not consistent with the 1992 agreement for developing the site.
We have already seen a second-rate development project on public land at the Naval Training Center because Corky McMillin was awarded the contract as a result of the same kind of backroom deals that Manchester has cut.
McMillin legally bribed the San Diego City Council for years using bundled campaign contributions of thousands of dollars from his family and employees. I spoke out against that too.
So it is easy to understand Bloch’s point of view since he is employed by the Corky McMillin Companies as their mouthpiece — a fact he forgot to mention.
