SANDAG infighting on the horizon, Mileage Tax likely to comeback

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – On Friday, Jan. 13, the SANDAG board will welcome in a new executive board. Many feel that the voices of certain constituencies are failing to be heard due to a recently implemented weighted voting system, but do our representatives even care?

As it stands, the cities San Diego and Chula Vista have full veto power over any vote through a weighted system. This prevents all smaller constituencies from voicing meaningful opposition.

KUSI’s Dan Plante reports that it appears the fix is in at SANDAG.
