Good morning from Hillcrest.
- A plan to outsource San Diego County’s pension investment team got tripped up yesterday when the pension plan’s attorneys ruled the favorite for the job couldn’t bid because of conflict of interest concerns.
- Here’s my guide to City Hall politics in April. I put together a handy list with dates of all the major decisions or discussions coming this month on the Convention Center, Chargers stadium, schoobrary and budget.
- One of those big decisions is coming Tuesday. That’s the deal that gives the city control over the land needed for the Convention Center expansion. It goes before the Unified Port of San Diego’s board.
- City Councilwoman Donna Frye settled her lawsuit with the city over ballot language on June’s measure that would make the “strong mayor” government permanent. More details are now on the ballot about the costs of adding a ninth council district, which is part of the proposal. Here’s the Reader’s take.
- Fred Sainz, former spokesman for Mayor Jerry Sanders took a job in charge of public relations at the nation’s largest LGBT advocacy group.
