Show us the numbers, Civic San Diego

Agreed. However City Attorney Jan Goldsmith stated he will sue individuals who file frivolous complaints. And if Goldsmith wins, he goes after individuals for the City's excessive Legal Fees. Therefore, individual citizens should not sue the City, and should try to get non-profits with little assets to sue instead. For example, in the lawsuit from Park and Recreation Employee Stacy McKenzie against former Mayor Filner which was lost, the City Attorney stated he will go after the Ms. McKenzie for his legal costs. The easier solution would be for the City Council to do their Fiduciary duty and not approve the annual CAFR without complete financial information. With SB-107 approved in September 2016, the County Auditor Controller (CAC) is tasked with Auditing the City of San Diego Successor Agency/LMIHAF.

San Diego cops a deal for online espionage

In San Diego as part of Emergency Response. San Diego County and San Diego State University (SDSU) recently formed a partnership to research and develop a new social media-based platform for disseminating emergency warnings to citizens.

Old Barrio Logan library not up for grabs

"A written offer to sell or lease for enterprise zone purposes any surplus property in an area designated as an enterprise zone pursuant to Section 7073 shall be sent to the nonprofit neighborhood enterprise association corporation in that zone."

Time's up. No sexual harassment claim possible.

The Due Process for Mayor Filner Facebook page documented the public statements made by Jeri Dines at the time of her lawsuit against the City of San Diego. "April 5, 2014. New bombshell on the Jeri Dines case. Remember the mom who said 'Filner could grab her boobs anytime' and she didn't get why people were making such a big deal about all the Filner claims well after her daughters alleged assault. She also posted the pic of her and Filner from the assault event on FB twice both times gushing about the mayor. Well she had quite a different story for the lawyers...she claimed in court documents that she was 'deeply offended that her daughter was assaulted by a person she trusted...." read on. I wonder if anyone told them that lying under oath was perjury... I love the part about how 'name is withheld due to the nature of the offense' meanwhile mom is blasting 'Filner can grab my boobs anytime' all over the internet after the event allegedly occurred. Look at the dates here...Why is she visiting Toni and lorena in their assembly offices during the press conference to boot BF? MORE importantly why is that picture w/ Bonnie Dines taken same time as the 'groping' photo w/ Filner dated July 26th? No one gets this kind of access unless they are very important. April 3, 2014. WHOAH! Ok so today one the accusers comes out to file a civil lawsuit Jeri Dines....we just found the smoking gun of all guns to prove she is lying. I will post more pics for you on her in a minute but the Fox 6 article shows a pic of her w/ Filner allegedly from May when he supposedly grabbed her butt and boob. So in going through her FB photos we found her visiting w/ Lorena Gonzalez and Toni Atkins July 11th-13 during the big BF Presser lots of pics w/ a relative Bonnie Dines. One of the 3 counts is THIS count of 'sexual assault'. That is why this is so important because if this count was false and he pled guilt what about the other 2? Its important to remember the City refused to pay for his defense so he was getting bills from his attorneys for like $40,000 a month. He was in a corner. Either just do a plea deal or go broke." why is the mother who testified to being horrified at Filner's actions against her daughter saying he can "grab her boobs or ass anytime" AFTER she allegedly witnessed the event? Later she claims all the claims against Filner are absolutely absurd. Wonder if someone made her an offer she could not refuse? Especially since daughter Jeri got a nice cushy job at state corrections office shortly after she decided to file a claim....
