The San Diego Association of Governments is the County organization trying to require Coronado to build thousands of low-income rental units. The membership is composed of the mayors of every municipality in this county. One would assume the purpose might be to foster mutual support, not to force odious demands.
This week the San Diego Union Tribune reported that an independent audit of SanDag shows a number of discrepancies attributed to the General Manager, Hasan Ikhrata.
The one time I attended a SanDag meeting (regarding the low income housing issue) I was annoyed to see 21 elected officials being lectured by Ikhrata, as in this is what SanDag is/is not doing. City mayors taking directions from the hired help, rather than vice versa.
Ikhrata is described as a transportation guru recruited from Los Angeles. Coronado and Imperial Beach have great active mayors, fighting the Tijuana sewage problem, dealing with Caltrans, managing our many interests. I am asking if there is some legal and/or financial reason we put up with SanDag, the specious leadership, and unreasonable rudder orders? And I am guessing I.B. might join us in resigning.
