Lani Lutar pulled in a bale of cash to lobby city hall for a cannabis supply chain ordinance.
The fight over what San Diego’s marijuana regulations will ultimately look like when pot goes legal in California next year continues to be a significant cash generator for local lobbyists, as evidenced by Lani Lutar’s Bright Light Advisors.
The ex–San Diego County Taxpayers Association chief picked up a cool $40,000 last quarter from solar-power maven Marty Reed to pitch city hall for approval of “marijuana supply side regulations,” including “cannabis supply chain ordinance, with regulations that protect health and safety of residents, the environment, workers, and taxpayers.”
The Union-Tribune, owned by Chicago-based tronc, the revenue-challenged newspaper chain, has been mainly known for its layoffs. But the paper’s Spanish-language Hoy San Diego operation is currently looking for what it calls a “quality editor.”
The new hire will be “responsible for assisting the editorial director in the overall copyediting, editing and packaging of content for the print edition as well as planning, organizing and growing content and social media audience for hoysd.com, as well as oversight the flow of translations and content from freelance writers.” No salary is listed.
