Thursday, July 24, 2008 | When Southeastern Economic Development Corp. was created, I was scared to death that the community would be handed over to developers to evict us from our property and make quick profits by bulldozing homes and creating a slum. East San Diego, which used to be a nice place, was the model I thought of. Instead SEDC did what they promised! They brought in retail stores and condos and actually made the area much better. They did not harm the residents. I wonder now if the ouster of Carolyn Smith and the board opens up the area for developer rape. SEDC cared about the residents. What will the next leadership care about? Now who will protect us from wanton capitalism? Is this a power play to open up the residents to irreparable harm? I think all of the community has a reason to worry about the future of land use in the area.
