NEWS RELEASE
MAYOR BOB FILNER STATEMENT REGARDING THETOURISM MARKETING DISTRICT
Statement from Mayor Bob Filner regarding the San Diego City Council action today:
I have been trying for four months to do what the City Council asked me to do in their resolution last year: to negotiate an operating agreement with the TMD.Unfortunately, the TMD continually refused to negotiate.Last Friday, for the first time, they finally agreed to negotiate after a court decision made it clear that I am allowed to protect the taxpayers of this city.We are 90% of the way toward an agreement. And I am confident that we can conclude our negotiations in just a few more days.But anxious to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, Council President Gloria today hasdecided that rather than protect taxpayers
 – 
he would have last year 
s deeply flawed agreementshoved right down the taxpayer 
s throats.That is wrong
 – 
and I will not allow that to happen.My position is clear: We can promote tourism, enhance our economy, and protect the taxpayersfrom being ripped off.That is my goal, and that is what I will insist upon.
