Monday, Aug. 13, 2007 | In response to Evan McLaughlin‘s article “Despite Pension Case’s Demise, Aguirre Presses On.” A few words stick way out in this piece which are “enormous costs,” “crusade,” “experimental theories,” “without council permission.”
And the most conspicuous: Aguirre sees himself as a “quarterback.” This being the most applicable because the San Diego taxpayers will not even get a quarterback from the money that is hemorrhaging away on Aguirre’s legal cases. Consultant Chris Crotty said in the article that voters have the idea that Aguirre is fighting “City Hall” so they like him. Like a person waking from an overnight binge, they will have fiscal headaches untold. Crotty siad the resolution is immaterial. I disagree. If the voters wake up in time, the resolution can be a different and competent city attorney.
