Liberal Democrat Bob Filner has been ousted as mayor, and the September 5 meeting of the Mexican American Business and Professional Association appeared to reflect the city’s new order, featuring two of the city’s insiders. Both are big backers of privatizing city services by handing out contracts to influential friends and associates. First up, ex-GOP mayor Jerry Sanders, now running the county’s Chamber of Commerce, who was billed as discussing “building San Diego’s economy through job creation and enhanced contract opportunities for all.” Next came Democratic city councilman Todd Gloria. According to the email: “As the city of San Diego forges ahead with new contracting programs, streamlined permitting processes, and small business opportunities, top employers are doing their part to help Small, Disadvantaged businesses build a sustainable foundation for reciprocal success.”

Matt: I was having a pretty good morning. Then you had to go and write this. Do I need to know this? Not I, and all the other ostriches agree with me. If Mr Gloria (the caretaker of the mayor's office, as Mission Valley News calls him) and Mr. Sanders want to take my taxes and spend them underwriting their big business plans instead of fixing potholes and undergrounding utilities, why, I am sure they wouldn't do it if they didn't have a good reason. And the power. Or do they?

Yeah, Matt, do you have to remind us of everything these salesmen do? No one else does. And what do you mean, "white bread"? TGlo claims he's Native American, Filipino, Dutch, Puerto Rican, and probably lots of other things, depending on what he's selling on a given day.

I like the caps on "Small, Disadvantaged." TGlo making sure we get how dear TGlo is.

Gloria doesn't just "claim" that he's Native American. He IS "an enrolled member of the Tlingit Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska."
