Even though Chula Vista is still reeling from the default/closure crisis, residential development continues to be the city's economic engine.

McMillin's east side Mellenia development includes 2,983 condos. Now that the bay front plan has passed, west side development by Pacifica aims for 1,500 condos.

Two developments currently in process on the east side are Olympic Pointe with 427 condo/rentals and Lake Pointe with 384 condo/rentals.

Are campaign donations to council member candidates an indication of who the developers believe will best support their plans?

Incumbent Pamela Bensoussan is facing off against Larry Breitfelder for seat 3 in the council races. Developers contributed $21,225.00 to Bensoussan and $900.00 to Larry Breitfelder.

Mary Salas and Linda Wagner are candidates for seat 4. Developers gave Salas $21,525.00 and Wagner $300.00.

It hasn't been enough for Pamela Bensoussan to have collected more money from developers than Larry Breitfelder collected in total. She, with the help of Jose Preciado, has spent a lot of money on hit pieces against Breitfelder. Her campaign of dirty tricks is shameful.

interestingly enough there appears to have been a major drop off of contractors and vendors pouring money into the sweetwater school board election. hmmmm, now why might that be? perhaps it was the discovery of the registrar of voters website by the masses - the taxpayers who took the time to log on and view for themselves just how much money it took to ----------------.

but then, we must wait, let us not forget that john mccann had a contractor (one who plead guilty in the pay to play alleged corruption case) donate monies into john mccann's campaign A YEAR AFTER HE WON THE SEAT - in an attempt to help mccann pay off his campaign debt.

chula vista voters, it is imperative that you remember all of the 'NOTHING' the little man who wants to be king has NOT done since becoming a board member. keep in mind he has his eye on the mayoral seat - i mean high chair in his case. if you value your city look elsewhere for a candidate - he has been a say nothing, do less, vote wrong, board member - i simply can not imagine all of the havoc he would raise if given another political seat.

Fully concur with both. I couldn't have said it better.

Vote for Larry and Linda! We want our city back! It's a shame we have to wait to vote out the Mayor.

Condos, condos, condos, I guess that's what you call planning. Where are these people going to work? Where are their children going to go to school? Hey...instead of updating the general plan, let's update the city leaders.

Gee, and I thought we had a water shortage. The fact is, the developers don't care about anything other than their bank accounts.
