You have to kind of feel sorry for Adam Day. As chairman of San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer's handpicked Citizens Stadium Advisory Group, Day—the son of former SDSU president Thomas Day, himself no stranger to controversy—seems perfectly suited for the heavily spotlighted volunteer role he's been handed.
San Diego Chargers general counsel Mark Fabiani had to fire up an old computer to find the details, but it was hard to forget what a New York financial consulting firm was proposing in 2012 to get the NFL team a shiny new Downtown football stadium.
Faulconer has put together something he calls the Citizens’ Stadium Advisory Group (sporting the unfortunate acronym CSAG), a nine-member panel of seemingly whip-smart business types given a fall deadline to put an actual plan to actual paper to get the Chargers a new home.
Come Jan. 20, however, current party Chair Francine Busby will face a vote of confidence, in essence, following a couple of years in which Democrats—despite an edge in registered voters over Republicans countywide—came up short in several marquee races.
