Ex-National City mayor Nick Inzunza buys more property on National Avenue

Ralph Inzunza denied new trial in Cheetahs strip club case

— Ex-National City mayor Nick Inzunza, whose wheeling and dealing in the ramshackle residential properties of Barrio Logan was first revealed on these pages a little over four years ago, is continuing to expand his inner-city real estate empire. According to a deed recorded with the County on May 11, Inzunza and wife Olga Payan snapped up units at 2201 and 2203 Logan Avenue for $435,000. The sellers were Sylvia Driesbach and Clifford M. Potts Jr. A 2005 story in the Union-Tribune about Inzunza and his rat-infested properties forced him out of the race for the 79th District seat being vacated by termed-out Democratic assemblyman Juan Vargas. Inzunza's brother Ralph, formerly on the San Diego City Council before his conviction in the Cheetahs strip club corruption case, was denied a new trial by federal judge Jeffrey Miller in April. ... U-T owner David Copley's 164-foot yacht Happy Days made landfall at the International Yacht Club of Antibes, on the Côte d'Azur of France, on May 23, according to the latest sighting posted on yachtspotter.com.
