Shocked and saddened at One Paseo meeting

The letter below was sent to Mayor Bob Filner, Councilwoman Sherri Lightner and this newspaper for publication.

Mayor Filner:

I was shocked and saddened to see you berate and belittle the great people at Kilroy last Thursday. This is a state with 9 percent unemployment, oppressive taxes and a shrinking tax base yet instead of bridging the divide to ultimately create jobs and revenue all you could do was treat a company with deep ties in San Diego as criminals. If more sales taxes and property tax is not ultimately a good thing for


citizen in San Diego than what is? Perhaps it may have been more constructive to say “Let’s all listen as a community this evening and find a way to get this done!”

You should be ashamed yourself as Mayor of such a large and influential city that you can’t see the forest through the trees. If you have not already called and apologized to Mr. Little you should do so, immediately.

I am a Carmel Valley homeowner and resident and I am in full support of One Paseo.

John P. Toman
