Whitburn Stands up for San Diego
Yesterday I attended a press conference regarding the proposed monster towers at 301 University.
City Council Candidate Stephen Whitburn announced that he was opposing this project.
Just a few months ago, residents thought they had prevailed in court when the project was rejected as being inconsistent with the community. Instead of revising the deal to make it better for the neighborhood, the developers had the gall to resubmit the plan...bigger and uglier than before.
Todd Gloria, who seems to be in the pocket of developers, was nowhere to be seen.
I'm supporting Stephen Whitburn not only because Donna Frye has endorsed him, but because it's clear that he has the guts to actually try to change how business is done in San Diego. We need new members of the council who will actually listen to the rest of us, and not serve the well-connected insiders downtown.
Normal Heights is a key battleground in this race, and it's important that we have a representative who cares about us for a change. I'm going to be knocking on doors in the neighborhood asking them to vote for Stephen Whitburn.
