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
well done as always
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.
Containment is everything, right Mr. Googins? It is starting to look like some of us made a big mistake when we supported Googins over the guy who was from outside the area. And here we thought the local person would have our best interests at heart, when he is firmly in line with the status quo, 'business as usual' bunch. I'm rather surprised he hasn't actually said, "Move along, there's nothing to see here!"

The City of Chula Vista should no longer waste hard earned tax payer's money to move forward on this. GIt goes to show the money they already wasted could have been put towards better use. The Judge's ruling clearly states there is NO VIOLATION of zoning codes. We are all adults, you have the choice to go there or the choice not to go in. Ever since the City of Chula Vista got that bay front development approved it seems like they wish they had purchased the property themselves. They are holding a GRUDGE in my opinion and not thinking straight. The City of Chula Vista just approved of a Casino/Card Room on BAY BLVD less then a block away, so what's the big deal City of Chula Vista?
