Anyone have any idea how I could obtain a list of the properties/land that San Diego County will be selling?

How convenient! Now the city is selling assets as the market it tanking. It's going to be the taxpayers subsidizing the developers' future profits again. Why not raise taxes, rescind the pension increases and fire 30% of the city's workforce? That will cause some pain so the city leaders don't make the same mistakes again.

Here's Don Bauder's great piece on another possible land giveaway.

I just want to know what these idiots did or are doing with the property tax revenue that doubled if not tripled in the last few years. Some people are paying as much as $1,000.00 a month in property tax for what? Let me guess; a library for thugs who don't want to work to go to and sit at a computer and watch MTV, a police force that does nothing to the person who stole your car, schools that harbor drug pushers and miscreants, parks riddled with graffiti, highway and bridge tolls, pot holes, higher gas prices than the rest of the country, overpriced smog certificates, a state lottery that has done nothing to improve schools, etc.......

"One argument is that selling Montgomery would help the City through its financial crisis. Early this year, the San Diego Institute for Policy Research, a think tank run by former mayoral candidate Steven Francis, asked 503 randomly selected San Diegans how they would prefer to deal with the crisis: would they sell off assets or raise taxes? A full 61.8 percent said selling assets such as Montgomery would be their first (37.7 percent) or second (24.1 percent) choice. Only 12 percent opposed this stratagem, although many financial experts warn that selling off juicy assets to skate past a crisis is self-destructive in the long run. Raising taxes was the first or second choice of only 44.7 percent of those polled."
