Citizens of Chula Vista Will Vote on Fair and Open Competition Ordinance
The ABC San Diego Chapter announced on August 14 that the San Diego County Registrar of Voters had determined there were enough signatures for a Fair and Open Competition Ordinance voter initiative to qualify for the June 8, 2010 ballot. This ordinance would ensure that all responsible and capable contractors would be encouraged to bid on city-funded construction projects. Local media coverage of the initiative having enough signatures for the ballot is available here and here.
