Juan Vargas Gets $1000 of Roski Campaign Cash

Majestic Realty honcho Edward P. Roski, Jr., locked in a battle with AEG's Philip Anschutz for the chance to build an NFL stadium in Los Angeles, gave $1000 to help retire the campaign debt of state Sen. Juan Vargas, now seeking the congressional seat that fellow Democrat Bob Filner is giving up to run for mayor.

The money was given August 19, according to a major donor statement filed Monday by Roski and his company, based in the City of Industry, the site of his proposed stadium.

Vargas voiced opposition to this fall's Senate Bill 292, a measure meant to expedite environmental review of AEG's downtown L.A. project, which some fear is being put together to steal the Chargers from San Diego.

Of course, any delays in AEG's project might also be viewed as benefiting Roski's chances of building his City of Industry venue, which has already received a similar environmental waiver, though many observers currently consider him to be the dark horse in the race.

"I don't think it will get signed by the governor and shouldn't," Vargas said of SB 292 in a September 3 Union-Tribune report.

According to that account, Vargas , "agreed that changing the California Environmental Quality Act for one project is 'not right.'"

The bill passed the senate on a floor vote of 32 to 7, with San Diego Democrat Christine Kehoe voting no.

Vargas was listed as the only member not voting.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill into law September 27.

A separate measure, Assembly Bill 900, billed by its backers as way to help speed construction of a Chargers stadium in San Diego and other big public works projects around the state past inconvenient environmental hindrances, also passed and was signed by Brown.

Vargas was present and voted in favor of that.

Other politicos picking up some of Roski's cash over the summer included Assembly Democrat Jose Solorio ($1000); Democratic Sen. Curren Price ($3900); and GOP Sen. Tony Strickland ($1500).
