Hueso’s gold

Democratic San Diego city councilman Ben Hueso has collected another $31,845 in his bid for the state assembly, bringing his grand total so far to $167,341, according to a recently filed campaign report. Among the contributions of interest is $2300 from lawyer Jim Waring, onetime land-use and economic-development chief for Mayor Jerry Sanders. Waring abruptly quit in August 2007 after it came to light that he was quietly trying to assist Sanders donor Aaron Feldman engineer a compromise to lower the height of his controversial Sunroad office building near Montgomery Field to 166 feet rather than the 160 feet mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

In June of this year, Sanders picked Waring to join the board of the City’s Housing Commission, saying, “Mr. Waring’s vast wealth of knowledge in the areas of law, land use, and real estate investments; expertise in the management of nonprofit organizations; and his solutions-oriented and consensus-building nature will be invaluable additions to the Housing Commission.”

The list of other Hueso donors includes Francisco Javier Rabago of Tapatio Auto Wrecking ($1650) and Jerry Flick of Chula Vista’s Avalon Property Management ($3900).

Is this really a story? Why aren't the other candidates campaigns making the "story"? This is a no big deal story, a waste of ink. Stick to your events and entertainment reporting. You guys are projecting the old UT with this stuff.
