Myrtle’s electric juicer

Strange political bedfellows

Fourth District city council Democrat Myrtle Cole has been collecting major money from some strange political bedfellows for her reelection campaign, getting $250 from Nicole Capretz, executive director of Climate Action Plan on November 21, and the same amount on September 11 from Erbin B. Keith of Encinitas. He is general counsel of SDG&E, Capretz’s arch enemy in Climate Action’s effort to break the utility’s hold on electricity distribution. Also, $125 for Cole came from SDG&E supply management director Michael Kelsey of Poway; $200 from Carlsbad’s Eugene Mitchell, SDG&E vice president of state government and external affairs; and $250 from Emily Shults of San Marcos, the utility’s energy supply vice president. Denita Willoughby, Los Angeles–based vice president of procurement for SDG&E parent Sempra Energy, gave $200.


The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Lincoln Club, two bulwarks of the local Republican establishment, have already come up with six-figure financial support for Chris Cate and for Lorie Zapf, the party’s two San Diego councilmembers up for reelection this year. The chamber gave $200,000 to an independent pro-Cate committee on December 13. The Lincoln Club contributed $100,000 the same day. A Zapf-backing committee got the same.
