Morris4Blakespear campaign

From the Inbox:
A posse made rounds around town last night. Cardiff, Seaside, Stonesteps, Beacon’s, Grandview, the rail trail, ECR corridor, ECP, and the Leucadia crossing reported seeing hundreds and hundreds of fliers reporting a possible Morris/Blakespear connection. Where have you spotted these? Morris, the Dem wolf in sheep’s clothing, secretly riding the coattails and offering to massage Blakespear the career politician’s critics?

Blakespear’s top donor is Trumper, San Diego’s biggest apartment landlord

Coast News:
San Diego’s biggest landlord is also the largest contributor to Mayor Catherine Blakespear’s state senate campaign, making her the only Democratic candidate in this year’s election to receive a donation (of any size) from the company’s principal owner and longtime Republican donor.

After contributing thousands of dollars to former President Donald Trump’s 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns, Gerry Ranglas, CEO of R&V Management — the owner of at least 8,000 apartments in San Diego County — has substantially backed Blakespear over her GOP counterpart, Matt Gunderson, in the 38 State Senate District race.

Legal fight over Blakespear censoring residents continues

 Coast News:

A group of residents continues to seek legal remedies against Mayor Catherine Blakespear over her alleged censorship of critics on social media, recently filing a new notice of intent to move forward with litigation unless previous settlement terms are satisfied.

San Diego civil trial attorney Carla DiMare filed an amended notice on July 14 with the city of Encinitas on behalf of Robert Nichols, former chairman of the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project, and approximately 28 other “citizens’ rights advocates.”

DiMare, who replaces Carlsbad-based attorney Michael Curran, claims her client’s constitutional rights were violated when Blakespear restricted access to her official mayoral Facebook page and blocked certain users for expressing dissenting opinions.
