I finally received a second response to the various inquiries I placed to the post-election contributors of San Diegans for City Hall Reform. The first response, from developer Craig Clark, can be found in my story today.

H. Gordon Diamond, a media relations director for AT&T, e-mailed me with this explanation about the $2,500 donation made from the political fund for the company’s employees.

Our PAC contribution is based upon our belief that the efforts of the San Diegans for City Hall Reform committee in looking for ways to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of city government benefits everyone who lives and works in San Diego.

I hope this helps.

Hoping for some elaboration, I replied with this:

Thank you for the response. My question is more along the lines of why the PAC contributed to a committee that essentially had no cause at the time of your donation, as the ballot measures it was set up to create had already passed. So why would the PAC give to a committee that essential has no expressed cause at the time of your donation?

Diamond wrote back:

evan — if you are referring to Props B&C, that is correct. however, the committee is still doing ongoing work —which we support — to look for ways to streamline and improve the government in San Diego and many of these will be issues during the next election cycle.
