Tony Young dishes out city committee assignments

Council Prez Tony Young

San Diego City Council President Tony Young sent out a memo yesterday listing the committee appointments for the new council, as well as announcing his intention to create an Ad hoc Committee of the Redevelopment Agency.

Young’s appointments skew in favor of Democrats, appointing council members on the left to fill all the chairmanships, except for the audit committee, which will be led by President Pro-tem Kevin Faulconer. Todd Gloria picks up two chairmanships: Budget and Finance, as well as the new Ad Hoc committee. Even freshman David Alvarez was assigned to lead the committee on Natural Resources and Culture.

Republican Carl DeMaio was also snubbed when it came to chairmanships, though he was assigned to two committees best suited for a fiscal hawk: Budget & Finance and Audit. Republican Lorie Zapf benefited the least: She received only two appointments—Natural Resources & Culture and Public Safety & Neighborhood Resources—two of the least influential committees. Young also spelled her name wrong.

Here’s the list (pdf):
