Scott Peters, Faulconer, Atkins, Young scarf freebies

Maienschein, Donna Frye, Ben Hueso do the same

— First District San Diego city councilman Scott Peters may be married to multimillionaire Lynn Gorguze, but that hasn't kept him from accepting a bunch of handouts from local builders, an ambulance service provider, and a bar owner. Developer and state coastal commissioner Pat Kruer hosted him at a commission reception in February ($75). In April, it was Entertainment & Development Enterprises with a "Bar West" open house ($70). The next month it was Pardee Homes with a "taxpayers dinner" ticket ($51). In June, Katie Keach of American Medical Response got him into the DT Partnership golf tournament ($114). Over in District 2, Kevin Faulconer picked up the same golf freebie from San Diego Medical Services Enterprises ($131). In February, the lobbying firm of Southwest Strategies gave him a pass to the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation annual dinner ($175). District 3's Toni Atkins reported getting "cookies" from Rick Ford, valued at precisely $58.50. The Fourth District's Tony Young got two "passes" and a gift certificate worth a total of $200 from San Diego Magazine in February. In April, city cable franchisee Cox Communications also plied him with two "passes" worth $100.

Brian Maienschein of District 5 was more culturally inclined, getting free admission to a June Dead Sea Scrolls reception from the Natural History Museum ($300) and tickets to a reception for photographer Annie Leibovitz from the Museum of Art ($130). The true jock in him presumably came out at the "Salute to Champions" hosted by the Hall of Champions ($85). District 6's Donna Frye got two floral deliveries worth $78.10 and $123.90 from Bob McElroy of the Alpha Project. In District 7, Jim Madaffer went to January's Buick Invitational golf tourney thanks to North City developer Black Mountain Ranch ($175). Land-use consultants Jim Whalen Associates picked up his tab at the Building Industry Association's "installation dinner" the same month ($195). District 8's Ben Hueso went to a $150 "laureate symposium" sponsored by AT&T. He got two tickets to the Dead Sea Scrolls event ($300) and San Diego Magazine's "50 People to Watch" party ($140).
