Late summer has been a busy fund-raising time for opponents and advocates of Proposition 8, the measure on November’s ballot to ban gay marriage in California. And, in what has become a regular theme of the campaign, yet another Sempra Energy executive joined the fray. Gloria Rowland, the giant utility firm’s senior vice president for human resources, gave $26,000 to the No on 8 forces on August 21. The San Diego–based American Institute of Bisexuality also gave $5000 to the “no” side. Locals in favor of the measure included conservative talk-show host Roger Hedgecock ($1000); Poway’s Pamela Capelo, a lawyer with Cooley Godward Kronish ($5000); Escondido lawyer Ned Israelsen ($3000); Qualcomm engineer Gary Short ($1000); Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop Salvatore Cordileone ($3000); and Rancho Santa Fe’s Richard Romney ($2000). … Meanwhile, local money has started to come into the campaign for Proposition 5, a controversial measure to water down drug laws opposed by the likes of San Diego County district attorney Bonnie Dumanis and ex-governor Pete Wilson. David Bergman, a physician from Rancho Santa Fe, and Joann Clark, chief executive officer of Valhalla Scientific, each gave $1000.
