Letter: Who the Convention Center Benefits

Why would we want Convention Center decisions like this made for
the primary benefit of private hotels, not the public asset?

 

I think you understand and addressed some of my issues with hoteliers taking over the Convention Center Board and moving small conventions and food services to their own hotels.

But, another issue we have is that action may make the center substantially less profitable — thus provide an excuse to cut labor costs even further in the future. Right now, decisions are made for the benefit of the Convention Center — why would we want Convention Center decisions like this made for the primary benefit of private hotels, not the public asset?

Lorena Gonzalez is the Secretary-Treasurer/CEO of the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, AFL-CIO.
