The city of San Diego’s nomination to the Port Commission has been postponed by Council President Scott Peters because the council did not receive background checks of the two nominees in time for next week’s meetings, Peters’ spokeswoman said today.
The appointment of either incumbent Commissioner Stephen Cushman or political consultant Laurie Black will be instead be made at the March 6 meeting. It was originally scheduled for next week, spokeswoman Pam Hardy said.
City Attorney Mike Aguirre did not complete the vetting process by the council president’s deadline, which is two Wednesdays before the meeting.
Aguirre aide Jeff Van Deerlin said the reports were sent out on Friday afternoon.
