There’s an illuminating article on San Diego’s Transient Occupancy Tax at the San Diego Free Press website.
Written by Cory Briggs it’s part of a series of articles by the newly reformed Democratic Woman’s Club on Who Runs San Diego?
The TOT “stands for missed opportunities, fiscal irresponsibility, and a shameful abrogation of civic responsibility to the moneyed interest of hoteliers.”
Together with the Tourism Marketing District (TMD) “tax” the article describes how the people who run San Diego seek to use public money to line their private pockets.
