San Diego Chamber dinged for Robert Hickey donation

Plus Luiseno Indians not allowed to repair roads

Chamber "did not identify six contributions totaling $235,000."
Chamber "did not identify six contributions totaling $235,000."

The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce has agreed to fork over a $5000 penalty to settle charges by the city’s ethics commission that it failed to report big money spent on a befuddling political funding network backing the failed city attorney campaign of Republican Bob Hickey.

According to a May 11 stipulation, the chamber’s January 31, 2017, disclosure report covering the period from October 1 through the end of December 2016, “did not identify six contributions totaling $235,000 that the Chamber PAC made to San Diegans for Safe Neighborhoods Supporting Robert Hickey for City Attorney 2016 sponsored by and with major funding from the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee and the Lincoln Club of San Diego County committee.”

From La Jolla Indian website. “The state prohibits the tribe from conducting emergency maintenance work to avoid potential liability issues.”

The La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians isn’t allowed to do its own reservation road work, creating regular barriers to transportation, says a May audit from the Government Accountability Office. Notes the report, the tribe “is located in a mountainous region of northern San Diego County, California, where rock falls are prone to occur. When rocks fall on a remote section of a state highway that runs through tribal lands, according to a tribal transportation official, the tribe must wait for state authorities to respond, even though the tribe has equipment that can remove the fallen rocks.”

Per the audit, “the state prohibits the tribe from conducting emergency maintenance work to avoid potential liability issues. As a result, local traffic can be blocked for extended time periods while waiting for state workers to respond.”
