Democratic San Diego city councilman Todd Gloria appears confident of winning an Assembly seat next month, so much so that his campaign committee gave $10,000 on October 3 to the Yes on K committee, backing the San Diego measure that would force a November run-off between city candidates, even if one of the contenders had piled up more than 50 percent of the vote in the June primary.

Backers of a companion proposal — Measure L, which would require initative and referendum measures to appear on general election ballots — include Steve Black, head of Cisterra Development, with $5000, and Dennis Cruzan, a former honcho for ex–Padres owner John Moores who now runs his own development firm, known simply as Cruzan. The Independent Voter Project, a nonprofit run by former Democratic state senator Steve Peace famous for its Maui conference for California legislators every fall, came up with $35,000 October 12.

Todd Gloria should be confident: even I voted to send him up to Sac and off our City Council. My next least-favorite person in the world of alleged Democrats is Steve Peace, whose falsely labeled lobby, "Independent Voters Project", is pushing Charter amendments K and L requiring November balloting for mayoral races and citizens initiatives. Those two items also got my vote. But I voted No on D, Peace's collusion with lawyer Corey Briggs and slickster John Moores to take over Qualcomm Stadium and its parking lots to benefit Peace's alma mater San Diego State.
