    San Diego Union Tribune ^ | July 15, 2013 | Karen Kucher
    Calling Mayor Bob Filner "tragically unsafe for any woman to approach," former Councilwoman Donna Frye on Monday renewed her call for his resignation while sharing explicit details about encounters that women had with the mayor. Frye read from statements from two unnamed women: - jamming his tongue down her throat - groped her under her bra - he grabbed her ass and touched her chest - (Filner) tell them that they would do a better job on that floor if they worked without their panties on
  • San Diego City Council votes to ban smoking on beaches

    06/19/2006 6:46:30 PM PDT · by NormsRevenge · 64 replies · 1,077+ views
    Cigarette smoking would be banned at city beaches and parks under a measure tentatively approved Monday by the city council. Sponsors said the measure will reduce litter and allow beachgoers to avoid secondhand smoke. "To me, this is a quality-of-life issue for San Diego," said Councilman Jim Madaffer, a co-sponsor. "This is an issue that is about public health and safety." The council unanimously approved the ban. A second vote is required before the measure becomes law. San Diego, whose miles of beaches are a major tourist draw, joins a handful of other California cities that have similar bans, including...

    SAN DIEGO -- In the final days of her campaign for mayor of the nation's seventh-largest city, Donna Frye is being asked about her image as a lightweight surfer chick. "Go ahead and think of me as a lightweight," she told a moderator during a live television debate Wednesday. "You might be surprised." Frye, a Democratic councilwoman and surf-shop owner, came within a whisker of winning the job during a write-in bid in November 2004. But a year later, it doesn't appear the city is ready for Mayor Frye — despite her bigger-budget campaign and a more polished image. With...

The segment will be in the last half hour of today's audio archives. The "temporary tax" proposed by Frye is mentioned in the Union-Tribune endorsement of Sanders.

    Bring your flags and pro-troop, pro-Bush signs to the "Rush to War"/Downing Street Memo event hosted by Congresswoman Maxine Waters and San Diego mayoral candidate Donna Frye on Friday, Aug 26th. In recent days liberal Donna Frye has been trying to move to the middle politically in the hope of fooling some conservatives into voting for her for mayor. For example, last month she didn't attend the Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade, which she has routinely done for years. She said she had to attend to "city business." Right. So the news of her participating in an Anti-Bush, Anti-War, Anti-America,...
  • Councilwoman easily outdistances others, but fails to win election outright (San Diego Mayor)

    SAN DIEGO – Councilwoman Donna Frye, the surfboard shop owner who nearly captured the Mayor's Office with an improbable write-in campaign last year, moved a step closer to the prize Tuesday as she easily outdistanced a field of 10 other candidates in the special mayoral election. But Frye fell short of getting a majority of the votes cast to win outright and will face a Nov. 8 runoff with former Police Chief Jerry Sanders. Although Sanders' lead over businessman Steve Francis was a modest one, it held steady as the returns piled up, and Francis never gained significant ground on...

    By SETH HETTENA, Associated Press Writer 45 minutes ago Donna Frye is accustomed to not being taken seriously. As a surf-shop owner inspired to act by the ocean pollution sickening her surfer husband and friends, Frye was written off when she ran for a City Council seat four years ago — but she won. Frye, who says she has been derided as a "surfer chick," was dismissed again last year when she waged a write-in campaign for mayor. Incumbent Dick Murphy barely defeated her, and then only after a court battle. Now that Murphy is resigning amid a pension fund...

    Voice of San Diego ^ | May 27, 2005 | ANDREW DONOHUE
    One of the three major credit rating firms ratcheted the city of San Diego's credit rating down another notch Friday, yanking the city to the investment quality of a mid-sized city with a troubled economy. Although the nation's seventh largest city as a whole continues to flourish economically, political and budgetary unrest continue to wilt the city government's once-vibrant credit worthiness, Fitch Ratings analysts concluded. A statement from Fitch cited the continued lack of audited 2003 and 2004 financial statements and the numerous ongoing investigations into city business as the reason for its fourth action on San Diego's credit rating...

    San Diego Reader ^ | May 26, 2005 | Don Bauder
    Now that criminal charges have been filed against former and current pension-fund trustees, some San Diegans feel the city has hit bottom. There is nowhere to go but up. Not so. Individuals and institutions in a downspiral only hit bottom when they realize the depth of their problems. And San Diego is still in la-la land. The magnitude of the city's pension and health-care deficits is significantly understated by the mainstream media. The dung is far deeper than citizens realize. You read that the pension deficit is $1.37 billion and the health-care deficit is $500 million. Nonsense. Those numbers are...

  • CA: 'Suit goes on' over write-in votes for Frye (Mayor 'Bubbles'? Frye awaits court decision)

    Remember the bubbles? The legal challenge to a ruling upholding Mayor Dick Murphy's election is still pending in a state appeals court, and the mayor's resignation yesterday will not stop the appeal, the attorney for the challengers said yesterday. "The suit goes on," said Fredric Woocher, an elections law specialist representing three supporters of Councilwoman Donna Frye. They contend she lost her write-in campaign to unseat Murphy because ballots that should have been counted were not. The challenge focused on 5,551 ballots on which Frye's name was written in but a corresponding oval bubble next to it was not shaded...

    San Diego UNion ^ | April 10, 2005 | Philip J. LaVelle
    Bad pension moves and accounting irregularities have made a mess of San Diego's finances, but is California's second-largest city on the brink of bankruptcy? Depends who you ask. Some pundits and some bankruptcy lawyers say it is. Not surprisingly, Mayor Dick Murphy and current and former top city officials insist it isn't, and some municipal finance experts agree. Meanwhile, Wall Street credit-rating agencies and other informed third-party observers show little sign of bracing for San Diego turning into the next Orange County, which became the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history in 1994. Standard & Poor's Ratings Services suspended...

    San Diego Union Tribune ^ | Jan 22, 2005 | Philip J. LaVelle and Matthew T. Hall
    Employees in the city of San Diego's treasurer's office – ground zero in federal investigations of city finances – destroyed numerous records last month, prompting a warning from City Manager Lamont Ewell yesterday. The destruction of records was revealed yesterday by City Attorney Michael Aguirre, who said he learned from an unnamed city employee Thursday night that about 20 people in the treasurer's Financing Services division dumped whole files into recycle bins and erased e-mails. The news spurred a terse e-mail from Ewell to "all city employees," warning against the destruction of documents that might be sought by federal investigators...

    SAN DIEGO -- The state Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to consider whether the city of San Diego violated its charter by allowing a write-in candidate to run for mayor, ending one of several lawsuits challenging the November election. The lawsuit, filed by an attorney who supported third-place finisher Ron Roberts, had sought to nullify the election and force a runoff between Roberts and Mayor Dick Murphy, who won the election and began a second term Dec. 8. Thomas McKinney, a lawyer who works in the office of Roberts supporter John Howard, argued that San Diego should have rejected Councilwoman...

    San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | December 15, 2004 | Philip J LaVelle, Daniel J. Chacon
    More people voted in the San Diego mayor's race for write-in candidate Donna Frye than for Mayor Dick Murphy, according to a review yesterday of disputed ballots, but it would take court action for her to be declared the winner. At the end of a full day of ballot examination, county elections workers ... had reviewed 4,854 ballots cast for Frye that were not included in the official results of the Nov. 2 election. Those numbers alone, likely to rise as the ballot review continues today, would put Frye 2,746 votes above Murphy's official total. The ballots were disqualified because...

    SAN DIEGO -- A recount began Tuesday in the San Diego mayor's race, with observers examining disqualified ballots that apparently were cast for a maverick city councilwoman who ran a surprising write-in campaign. The unprecedented review could answer a question that, so far, is only theoretical: Would Councilwoman Donna Frye have won if enough of her supporters had darkened an oval after writing her name on the ballot? Frye supporters argue that several thousand ballots with Frye's name on them were ignored because state law requires the corresponding oval be darkened. Incumbent Mayor Dick Murphy, who was sworn in for...
