Journalism won’t die if you donate. Support Voice of San Diego today!
In keeping with my promise of last week, here are more supporters and opponents of Proposition C, the June 3 ballot measure that would change the relationship between San Diego’s mayor and its internal auditor.
I also have some campaign finance information relating to the proposition.
But first, the lists.
Prop. C Supporters:
People: Charter Review Committee members James R. Milliken, John G. Davies and Susan Channick.
Organizations: San Diego Republican Party, San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp., San Diego Lodging Industry Association, The Lincoln Club of San Diego County, Downtown San Diego Partnership, San Diego Building Industry Association, The National Electrical Contractors Association.
Prop. C Opponents:
People: State Senator Christine Kehoe, former city auditor John Torell and San Diego Unified School District board member Sheila Jackson.
Organizations: Clairemont Town Council and Latino American Political Association.
Campaign finance reports filed this week show that opponents have raised $30,350 in their fight against the measure, while supporters have raised $150,105.
Watchdog Mel Shapiro, who donated $10,000, made the largest donation among opponents. Councilwoman Donna Frye and her husband Skip together gave nearly $4,000.
Cash supporters of Prop C. were far less in number, but ponied up significantly. The Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation was the largest supporter with a $45,000 contribution. Other big donors in support were the San Diego Lodging Industry Association, with a $25,000 donation and the San Diego Building Industry Association with a $15,000.
