Not one member that was so concerned about this issue attended the May 20th public session. The board is creating a committee to revamp the complaint form so that matters like this in the future for the Board and the Public are more helpful and clear.
The matter will be sent out to higher agencies for their review of the behind closed doors appointment of Councilmen Steve Miesen.

Your commentary is lacking in imagination. Do you understand that Hotels aren't merely a place for vacationers to stay in exotic locales? Like many in San Diego county, I am originally from our of state. Luckily, I have a spare room that my friends and family are able to use when they visit. If I didn't, where would they stay? The 'breathtaking resorts" off of the 805 and Bonita Rd? Surrounded by meth-heads in the "boutique" hotels near that line the trolley/ Route 5? Or more realistically, in a far flung location in San Diego proper. I'd appreciate an earnest commentary on the potential reality of more housing and hotels, instead of a sarcastic takedown of the East Side.
You die a little when you travel to the East side? I die a little when I look at the blight and decay on the West side. I wish there was a news source that I could turn to for info on my community in Otay Ranch that didn't have the disdainful view of it as a dull and meaningless suburban wasteland. Instead, I learn about major things like the plan to build "Rapid" this fall, and the formal public hearings that were already held regarding it, in the SBX 125 email newsletter. Other than seeing the "Future Rapid Transit Corridor" signs in the median for years, I never even knew that there was a real plan to ever build it, or heard any debate about the detriments and benefits of light rail in East Chula Vista from the Star News. And now that the construction headaches and crime increases that come with a trolley line/ stations are right around the corner in Otay Ranch, and I'm seeing a half-hearted article about Hotel proposals.

This means the city counselmember must live in that perspective division to run for office.

I hope we get to see the map soon--or see the final choices.

Will this mean that the city council will listen to the constituents a bit better?

How about less overdevelopment in the "eastern zone"? Those recent multifamily developments that were railroaded through despite what the community wanted--look hideous, and block the views to the lake that people who bought in that area were assured would be retail and restaurants.

It would be nice if the subterfuges could be avoided, and actual truth be heard. Don't sell people one thing and give them something else. That's considered at the very least "bad form"--and in some cases "fraud".

I don't think we want a community built on fraud, do you?

Well-reasoned--but entrenched interests remain entrenched.

The Bayfront project and the possible university development project (possibly incorporating the Olympic Training Center) are high stakes--and the entrenched interests have no plans to walk away from all that sweet charity.

What you have described, Mr. Davalos, is a small watershed moment, which does tell us all we need to know.

Miesen is a nuts and bolts guy, just there to get the basic job done.

McCann avoids responsibility again, with a convenient excuse. What else?

Bensoussan, Aguilar and Salas address the bigger issues, aware that cultural awareness and respect mean a great deal.

GO MOOT! GO PADILLA! - it is troubling that someone who CONSISTENTLY reminds us he 'served' would not support EACH AND EVERY VOTE BEING COUNTED - however not surprising - McCann is all about McCann.

* just my opinion

Of course they are guilty of illegal acts. What do people expect? They're a bunch of Republicans. If Chula Vista really wants to make a change, they have to have more DEMOCRATS in office!

Had enough South Bay Citizens? Vote Democrat!

Obviously, what the mayor wants in this position is someone who will "play ball".

The other members of the city council want someone who won't betray the deal-making that goes on behind the scenes. Who better than someone who works for a company that has a big account with the city of Chula Vista--it isn't as if Mr. Miesen would ever act in a manner that would jeopardize that contract. I am sure there isn't a better water carrier out there.

It is apparent that there is a power struggle, and those in power want to stay there--nothing new, I guess. Sure wish those holding public office would actually accomplishing something worthy of their position. Can't say that McCann has--matter of fact, wasn't his proudest boast that he didn't raise taxes--except he voted against the boost in Mello-Roos fees as a member of the Sweetwater Board knowing full well that the others would vote for it--just another Brown Act violation, from someone who must be something of an expert.
