Republican county supervisor Bill Horn getting fiancial love from some of San Diego’s biggest landholders.
Republican county supervisor Bill Horn has been getting some reflected financial love from one of the San Diego’s biggest landholders. Rancho Guejito, which is enmeshed in a struggle to develop its sprawling 22,000-acre holding in North County’s back country, gave $15,000 in cash on behalf of the supervisor to unspecified county “special events” on November 19, according to a so-called behesting report filed with the county clerk December 1.
Herzog Contracting, which also has done plenty of business with the county, came up with $5000 on November 5, also for unitemized “special events.” Herzog employees kicked in a total of $2800 for Horn’s successful re-election bid earlier this year. In addition, the company gave a total of $20,000 to a political action committee run by the county’s Deputy Sheriffs’ Association that favored Horn.
