A few people were incredulous last week when they heard the election night claims of Lorena Gonzalez – the Secretary-Treasurer/CEO of the San Diego & Imperial Counties Central Labor Council – that “corporate interests” and “huge corporations” outspent unions in a ratio of 7 to 1 in the campaign over the Fair and Open Competition ballot measure (Proposition A) in the City of San Diego. (Proposition A won with 58% of the vote on June 5, 2012.)
One person said to me, “I read your blog showing how unions spent $1.2 million against Proposition A. What is she talking about? Did the Yes on A campaign really raise more than $7 million?”

I assume at least a few of our Monday Morning Quarterback readers have woken up in the morning after drinking too much cheap red wine. You know the feeling…..the headache…the bad taste in your mouth….. trying to recollect exactly what happened last night….and then trying to figure out how much money you spent!!
Here are the excerpts from the Prop A portion of the the KUSI Show last night. Judge for yourself whether the Yes side or the No side speaks for San Diego Taxpayers.
First Segment – Yes on A – Crosby and Cate
Second Segment – No on A – Zaharopoulos
Third Segment – Roundtable – Nehring, Zaharopoulos, Crosby
