Alvarez and Allies Slam Corporate CEO Donors While He Takes Their Money
The mayoral candidates and their allies appear to be trying to do two things: Identify an enormous blob of people to hate — “unions” and “downtown insiders” and “corporate CEOs” — and then tie their rivals to them.

During the Golden Globes on Sunday, an attack ad began rolling against City Councilman Kevin Faulconer.
Basically, the message was that a bevy of “corporate CEOs” were supporting Faulconer in his bid for mayor.
That’s it. That was the gist of the attack. The screen scrolled through a long list of companies that these CEOs led. It was too fast to read. You were just supposed to get the impression that companies are bad, they support Faulconer, thus Faulconer is bad. Also, look at how long this list is.
Apparently, the best attack on Faulconer the Labor Council could come up with is that people who lead companies in San Diego support him for mayor.
