New Website Preserves Documents from Aguirre, Gwinn Administrations
There is a new website, www.sdcityattorney.com, that preserves documents created by former City Attorney Mike Aguirre. Importantly, this includes his 35 interim reports, which are perhaps the best record of San Diego corruption extant. The website also includes closed session meeting notes, legal opinions, and other significant reports. The new City Attorney, Jan Goldsmith, whose campaign was financed by the interests whose corruption is exposed, has been destroying the Aguirre record, as well as records of Aguirre's predecessor, Casey Gwinn. However, City Clerk Elizabeth Maland is in charge of official documents, and not all have been lost. Activist Katheryn Rhodes requests that the Aguirre/Gwinn documents be restored to the http:www.sandiego.gov/city attorney site. But they will be available at the www.sdcityattorney.com site.
