Chris Cate donation to Sean Rivera questioned

A.C.E. bait boat name causes confusion

In 2020, SDG&E forked over $7500 to charities between December 11 and December 29 at Chris Cate’s behest during the same period the councilman was loudly attacking fellow city council members for holding up the renewal of SDG&E’s lucrative franchise agreement with the city.

Explain the gift

So, Mister Cate landed a plumb position on the board of Voice of San Diego. (“Chris Cate – magnet for political fines,” Under the Radar, September 21, 2023) Maybe the great Cate ought to explain his nice donation to the reelection campaign of Sean Elo Rivera on the San Diego City Council. Why would the darling of SDGE make such a misplaced contribution?

Yeah, I have a question about your story, (“The Wreck of the A.C.E.,” Cover Story, September 21, 2023) What in the hell does A.C.E. stand for? That's the first question, the second question is how the hell do you pronounce it A, C, E? ACE? A period, C period, E period?

I mean, I read through the thing, what the hell is A.C.E.? Is it an abbreviation for something? How do you pronounce the damn thing? Is the boat the ACE? The A.C.E.? I mean what kind of bullshit... ridiculous.

Paragraph 5 of the story states: "Roy had designed the boat in the mid-1980s, and it was named after Buck’s grandfather, Adolphus Charles Everingham."
