The real estate industry keeps lining Mayor Jerry Sanders's pocket -- a perfect arrangement, since he is in their pockets. The government affairs committee of Commercial REALTORS Association of San Diego and the CCIM San Diego Chapter have joined with Susan Lew of Emerald Restaurant to host a fundraising reception. (CCIM stands for Certified Commercial Investment Member, or an expert in commercial and investment real estate.) "The re-elect Mayor Sanders campaign still needs our support as he needs $15,000 still," says the invitation signed by hosts Susan Lew, Graham Bryan, Jim Taylor and Jay Diskin. It's $250 per person, $320 maximum June 16 at the Emerald Restaurant. Personal checks only.
