Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2007 | Greg Block, please openly disclose your own major conflict of interest with the entire issue of developers receiving and building on San Diego’s public property in your many letters to the editor. You are a paid representative of the McMillin Company who also received former military-owned federal property at NTC. As, “Greg Block Community Relations Manager, The Corky McMillin Companies,” you are paid by a major developer to improve community relations. Obviously not only for your employer, but for their developer friends. Has your strategy always been a plan to paint a dirty picture of the people who are opposed to any development, even if it is not in the best interests of the community?
Ian Trowbridge had every right to contribute in his support of Donna Frye, especially after putting his own uninfluenced reputation on the line running as a candidate for District 2 Council, a much higher price to pay for one’s beliefs. Have you volunteered to do anything more than write letters, for the public? If anything, it appears that you believe San Diego’s populace is naive and dense not carefully reviewing the facts. Please, don’t burden the rest of the community with your company’s propaganda rantings or your individual attacks, as San Diego’s community is quickly realizing, they’ve been duped, again. A mayoral campaign donation of $50,000 by Manchester to Jerry Sanders shortly before this went to council, is surely a whole lot different than $300 from an individual, especially one who has little, if any, personal financial benefit to gain.
