Jack McGrory was Susan Golding's hand picked City Manager.
More than any other individual, Jack McGrory is responsible for putting us into the mess we find ourselves in today. He's the original architect of the pension fraud, the Chargers ticket guarantee, the taxpayer funded Republican Convention, and the ballpork rip-off.
You can verify this here:
Yep, Jack McGrory should be in jail, but the statute of limitations ran out under lapdog City Attorney Casey Gwinn. So we're all stuck with McGrory's corrupt deals on the pension, Qualcomm Stadium, the Republican Convention and the Ballpark.
What's McGrory up to nowadays?
Well one thing he's doing is contributing the maximum amount possible to Todd Gloria's campaign for District 3. He's given more than five hundred dollars to the developers' favorite mouthpiece. McGrory's undoubtedly also been instrumental in spreading the word that Gloria will always bow down to the downtown insiders. Gloria, you see, is bought and paid for. He's promised to continue the local tradition of "delay, deny, and deceive".
You can find all this information in the campaign finance disclosures.
This is the kind of back room dealing that has cost us all dearly. McGrory's pension fraud is now calculated to exceed $3 Billion.
Yes, that's three billion with a capital B.
If we really want to change San Diego, we have to make sure that candidates who take dirty money from fraudsters like Jack McGrory don't get elected to the council.
Vote for Stephen Whitburn instead.
He's supported by Donna Frye precisely because Stephen won't go along to get along. He stands for reform, and an end to the secret back room deals that McGrory perfected and Gloria promises to continue.
