Are you a “nego?” Unified Port of San Diego Commissioner Steve Cushman seems to think you are. He recently characterized those who oppose Port projects as “negos,” according to this Union Tribune article, Commissioner Cushman did so at a San Diego City Council. Those of us, from all walks of life and political parties, wcare about the environment and the democratic process should be concerned about an appointed official resorting to childish name calling. Many of these “nego’s” are driving around in Commissioner Cushman’s former “Cush Automotive Group” cars.

Please take a moment and let the Port Commissioners know that is it not a “positivo,” for a Commissioner of a body charged with managing San Diego Bay and surrounding wetlands, to refer to active and concerned citizens as “negos.”
