Alex, Mike, and Jerry

San Diego city attorney Mike Aguirre and Chargers owner Alex Spanos finally may have something in common. At loggerheads for years over Spanos’s attempts to build a new taxpayer-financed football stadium, Spanos and Aguirre have encountered a shared nemesis in the form of state attorney general Jerry Brown. In Aguirre’s case, Brown issued a preelection report exonerating San Diego mayor Jerry Sanders of the corruption charges Aguirre had leveled against him in connection with the Sunroad overheight building scandal. For Spanos, Brown’s intervention comes in the form of his reported threat to support legislation repealing the general plan of Stockton, where Spanos wants to build thousands of new units and a commercial center.

According to a recent account in the Stockton Record, Brown has been meeting quietly with opponents of the Spanos-friendly general plan, adopted by the city council there earlier this year, and said he “was appalled at the range of sprawl” it would cause. Brown’s office declined to provide any details of the discussions, and A.G. Spanos Companies spokeswoman Natalia Orfanos said the developer remains out of the loop for now. “We don’t want to muddy the waters,” she was quoted as saying. “We’re not going to interject ourselves. If he calls us, that would be nice. We have plenty to tell him. Good stuff, you know?”
