Rana Sampson, an ex-cop, law-enforcement consultant, and wife of San Diego mayor Jerry Sanders, has given $1000 to the campaign against Proposition 8, the measure to outlaw gay marriage in California. Last year, the mayor endorsed the gay-marriage cause during a tearful news conference in which he discussed the sexual orientation of his gay daughter Lisa by first wife Kerrill, whose divorce from the former chief of police was sealed from prying eyes. Among other prominent San Diegans giving to the anti-8 effort last week: Peter Janopaul, former port commissioner and developer embroiled in the El Cortez condo controversy, who contributed $1000, and Grace Cherashore, of the Evans hotel family, who kicked in $500. Builder Yehudi Gaffen of Gafcon gave $250. Cell-phone giant Qualcomm, Inc., came up with $5000 for the anti-Prop 8 side, and Torrey Modic, executive assistant at St. Paul’s Cathedral, gave $1000. On the other end of the issue was Salvatore Cordileone, Roman Catholic auxiliary bishop, who gave $2000 in support of Prop 8. … Chargers owner Alex Spanos has dropped his efforts to mount a referendum campaign against his hometown of Stockton over its settlement with state attorney general Jerry Brown. Spanos was upset that the Stockton City Council had consented to implementing so-called green building standards and other environmental concessions in exchange for Brown’s agreeing to back off a lawsuit he’d threatened to file. The football mogul — who wants to build thousands of new houses and commercial buildings in the Stockton suburbs — set up a committee called the Alliance for Responsible Planning, which announced it had gathered 25,000 signatures against what the Spanos family said was the city’s “secret deal” with Brown. The referendum effort was ended after the Stockton City Council sent a letter saying compliance with the terms of the Brown settlement would be “flexible.”
