Warwick vs. Promote La Jolla tenative ruling
challenging Promote La Jolla's last election of Directors and seating
Nancy Warwock and Bob Collins as Board of Directors for the 2008/2009 term.
(February 8, 2008)
Judge Meyer of the California Supeior Court found that Promote La Jolla had engaged in election violations when it refused to seat Nancy Warwick and Bob Collins to two director seats they had lawfully won in the elections of October 2007. At the hearing, Promote La Jolla urged the court to deny seats to Warwick and Collins, in part, due to their opposition to paid parking in the Village of La Jolla. The court rejected each of Promote La Jolla's arguments, finding that the mutual-benefit corporation had repeatedly violated election rules in denying seats to Warwick and Collins.

Non-Agenda Comments before the San Diego City Council. Once again,
Martin seems to be "coloring the truth". Misinformation included claiming
only 60 people showed up at the meeting (more like over 100), that he
was "shocked" that the City Attorney wanted to cancel the March 20 Parking
Advisory Board meeting (despite documented, clear evidence of repeated
Political Reform Act and Brown Act violations by the Parking Advisory
Board), and characterizing himself as "essentially an unknown person
within La Jolla" that the City Attorney claims can "can somehow influence
[Scott Peters and the City Council's] vote"!

San Diego City Council Meeting
Non-Agenda Public Comment*
March 25, 2008
Mosier>> Good morning. My name is Martin Mosher. I am the current Chair of the La Jolla Parking Advisory Board. I am here to here today to briefly inform the Council of what occurred at our meeting last week, March 19th, of the La Jolla Community District Parking Advisory Board.
We were all here on February 26th. City Council voted unanimously to have the community parking districts to get back to business and start voting again. Ms. Atkins position was clear, advisory and should be able to continue to operate. Mr. Calabreese who was present at that meeting, that there be no problem implementing the direction of the Council at that time. So, why is our parking board been again stopped from working by the City Attorney?
Given the last direction of the City Council on February 26, I as Chair set the agenda for our publicly noticed regular meeting last week on March 19. On that morning, just five hours before the meeting, I was shocked to get a letter from Mr. Aguirre himself advising me that our Board could not vote or act on any items at all. I decided to hold the meeting anyway.
However, I was even more shocked when Mr. Aguirre personally showed up at the meeting that same afternoon to advise me that I could not continue the meeting, could not accept any testimony from the public, we could not vote, and we could not listen to our constituents. in other words, I scheduled a meeting to hear from the community, and Mr. Aguirre personally shows up to say you can't even have this hearing, you can't even listen to these presentations.
I decided to ignore the advice of the City Attorney and to continue with public testimony. About 60 people had come to this meeting to discuss alternative parking plans, not our parking plan, but alternative parking plans from the community. Mr. Aguirre, however, advised me that our board will be developed collective concurrence if we heard testimony. Our board was formed by you, the City Council, not the City Attorney, to give advice about parking solutions within our community.
If this is not bad enough, at a recent meeting last Thursday, at the Citywide parking advisory committee, the deputy City Attorney, informed me that if our board was to give any advice to the City Council, that our parking board and our parking board alone, of the six parking districts, would have that advice declared invalid by the City Attorney's Office because Mr. Aguirre has alleged that there is some personal relationship between me and Mr. Peters and me and the City Council and me personally and the City staff so that I essentially an unknown person within La Jolla can somehow influence your vote.
Peters>> Thank you.
Peters>> I am interested in a response from the City Attorney. I was quite amazed of the thing I read in the Village News about this meeting. We are just asking for a recommendation. That's what I understood what we had sent out, and I think we're making a difficult situation in La Jolla even more difficult if we can't get through the community process so we can talk about whether we're going to do anything. Again, let everyone know, I am personally not committed to any particular course of action, but I would like to hear from the City Attorney. I don't think it is appropriate now, because it is not docketed.
Madaffer>> Is this something that should be at some point is it right to come to Council or at LU&H --
Peters>> It was at Council.
Madaffer>> That's why I don't understand this.
Peters>> Let's get a response from the City Attorney in writing on that.
Attorney's Office>> We have memos and letters related to this. I'm not sure if the Council was copied. We will look into that --
Peters>> We are particularly interested in the evidence that was cited in the newspaper.
Attorney's Office>> I don't see that article, I'm sorry, so I can't comment on that.
