Mayor Kevin Faulconer continues to hand out city appointments to some of his biggest campaign givers. One of the more conspicuous is Guy Asaro, president of McMillin Homes, who has become a member of the city’s Historical Resources Board. McMillin family members and employees gave more than $51,000 to Faulconer’s mayoral campaign, according to city records.
“Mr. Asaro is a past member of the Chula Vista Mayor’s Task Force on School Issues, Budget Oversight Committee for the Chula Vista Elementary School District and SR-125 Development Task Force. He cares deeply about conserving the character of neighborhoods in San Diego.”
The National Association of Realtors Fund, a political action committee from Chicago, has waded into San Diego politics with a $16,000 poll and $8700 worth of mail on behalf of downtown lobbyist and Republican city council candidate Chris Cate.
