The region’s five congressional representatives have written a letter to Michael Bixler, the Unified Port of San Diego’s chairman, stating their opposition to a proposed November ballot initiative that calls for commercial development at the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal.

The bipartisan group includes U.S. Reps. Brian Bilbray, Susan Davis, Bob Filner, Duncan Hunter and Darrell Issa.

“We do not believe that taking the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal and redeveloping it for recreational and tourist uses is in the best interest of San Diego,” they wrote. “We stand together to oppose this proposal and urge others to join us in protecting our region’s economy, good-paying jobs, and our military by preserving the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal.”
