Todd Gloria recently announced his re-election campaign. http://lgbtweekly.com/2011/06/05/todd-gloria-launches-re-election-campaign/#comment-21830 I have never been a supporter of Todd Glorias because of his money. In 2008 I combed through his campaign donations and here is what I found: http://www.developeralert.org/INDEXGloria.html

I will also list them at the bottom of this blog. Keep in mind this is just SOME of the developer money.

What Todd has done thus far in office:

He brags that he got a defunct Parking lot at Pericanos turned into a paid parking lot (next to several other paid parking lots that are never full).

He got paid parking meters along Normal Street which are never used except maybe on a Friday night (that land in the center median could have been nicely landscaped instead to relieve the aesthetic blight along that street).

Todd wants to now charge us to park at our own beaches because he gave all of our money away to redevelopment developers. http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs...

He continues to advance the Mid-City Rapid Transit Bus that no one except the people receiving the 43 million dollars to build it want. A project that received an Onion from the San Diego Architectural Foundation for bad city planning. http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs...

Even the San Diego Architectural Foundation that issues Orchids and Onions gave this project an Onion and it has nothing to do with parking and everything to do with...its just BAD planning!!

This is what they say about the project:

"Where the Onion comes in is the Park Blvd. portion of the project that closes Polk Avenue, a main thoroughfare carrying traffic across Park Blvd. to North Park on the east; access to 163 via Florida; access to the Park Blvd. businesses including Henry's & the UH Library; El Cajon Blvd.to go east or north to the University Heights neighborhood. ....There will be a lane reduction on the west side of Park. The gain in time is negligble -- all this while the North Park & Uptown communities are in the middle of updating their 20+ old plans. No improvements have been added to the very complex intersection at El Cajon Blvd., Park Blvd. and Normal. Another bus line will also be using this area. City of Villages planning this is not! Pedestrian and bicycle friendly this is not! Pushing through traffic onto the residential streets and creating congestion at other streets is a certainty. All this while bus routes and services are being cut -- I guess if this is one way to get new buses through Federal/State grants by designing a "bus runs through it," then let the good times roll!"

Well those are just a handful of Todd's destructive decisions. I will have many more to come. As promised here are some of his 2008 contributors.

If these are just SOME of the developers who donated to Todd's campaign, how many are there total?

I dont even know. You can see how much work it was for me to extract these because I had to go in and get each one individually. So at 1 point I said, OK this is enough. This is astounding. I got the info at the Center for Policy Initiatives which does a brilliant job at tracking donations. I just wish the database had been sortable so I simply could have sorted all the developer donations and copied and pasted but it was alot more work than that. Trust me there are alot more.

It's almost unfortunate that financially backing a poitician is legal.
