Christina Chadwick, vice president of communications at the Downtown San Diego Partnership, an outfit that lobbies for center city business and development interests, has more than a friend at city hall. Husband Scott Chadwick is Republican mayor Kevin Faulconer’s chief operating officer.

So discloses the partnership in its November 3 lobbying disclosure, which also reveals that Chadwick was paid $8280 in salary and benefits during the third quarter of this year. The group is pushing hard to turn the old main library building on E Street into a “technology, education, and innovation” center, and also wants to cops to beef up their anti-homeless surveillance and related “outreach resources” downtown.

Honcho Kris Michell lobbied Scott Chadwick on that, according to the filing. Michell, a former top aide to GOP ex-mayor Jerry Sanders, also spread a little political wealth, kicking in $250 for city-council candidate Chris Ward.


Chargers tickets might be hard to give away these days, but that appears not to be the case with SDSU’s Aztecs. Democratic city councilman Todd Gloria gave ex-Democratic party chief Jess Durfee two free admissions worth $31 each to Qualcomm Stadium for the university’s September 19 game, according to a November 6 city disclosure report.

"Kris Michell ... also spread a little political wealth, kicking in $250 for city-council candidate Chris Ward"

Sad to learn that. Chris Ward is much better educated and more capable in every way to represent D3, compared to Gloria's toadie, Bernal. But if Michell doesn't find Bernal enough of a willing toadie to serve her interests, and prefers Ward, then maybe Ward won't be such a great choice. The lesser of two evils is what we are tired of having to choose.
