The Clear the Air Coalition released the following statement today:
“The Clear the Air Coalition applauds the City of San Diego’s decision to hold off on making a decision about Community Choice Aggregation until the city has all the facts. Establishing a potential multi-billion-dollar government-controlled energy-buying program carries significant risk for taxpayers and, currently, there are far too many unknowns for city leaders to make an informed decision about such a program. We believe it’s prudent to wait for state regulators to determine how much a CCA would cost taxpayers, so that everyone better understands exactly what the costs and benefits would be for San Diegans as well as ratepayers in neighboring communities.”

SAN DIEGO (October 25, 2017) — Capping off a week of spirited engagement with local communities from across the region, Demba Ba announced today that long-time soccer coach and player development specialist Alexandre Gontran will lead San Diego’s 1904 Football Club as General Manager and Head of Football Operations. The club also announced it is finalizing a lease with SoCal Sports Complex at El Corazon Park in Oceanside as the team’s permanent home venue.
“The beautiful game is about trust and instinct. There are not many people I trust more than Alex,” said Demba Ba, who was groomed by Gontran the past 15 years. The two met in 2003 when Ba was 16. Gontran developed Ba into a world-class athlete who fulfilled his dream of signing a professional contract with European giant Chelsea Football Club in 2013.
SAN DIEGO (October 18, 2017) — The region’s newest professional sports organization proudly announced today that it will officially be known as 1904 Football Club. Along with a description of the club name’s origin, the team unveiled a brand video to share their story.
1904 // A name inspired for and by the people of its representative city. A fellow supporter and most importantly, a San Diegan, suggested 1904, deriving from S, the 19th letter of the alphabet, paired with D, the 4th letter, making 1904 an iconic name for San Diego soccer. From the start, this team has been deeply rooted in its interest and appeal to the street culture here, making Nineteen O’Four and the many variations of this name absolutely fitting. Finally, we have chosen to use Football Club because of what we're steadily moving towards, to bring San Diego football and its valued players to the world.
Colors/Logo // 1904 FC’s colors are as simple as the game itself. A game where one team must score just one more goal than the other. Black and white also represent both the darkness (challenges) of sports and the light (victory). The telescope represents the club’s long-term vision and commitment to the region, along with its goal of developing local football talent and helping young players achieve their dreams of playing international soccer. It also symbolizes the club’s connection to the city’s long-standing commitment, described as Semper Vigilans, which means ever vigilant, on the city seal.

SAN DIEGO (September 21, 2017) – Leading business economist Dr. Lynn Reaser released an independent analysis today of the City of San Diego’s feasibility study for a government-controlled energy program that determined the city’s study is flawed, lacks critical information, and reaches a conclusion not supported by the facts.
“The feasibility study’s finding that a CCA (Community Choice Aggregator) would be ‘feasible’ is at best a weak endorsement, especially in light of the number of risks regarding both its benefits and costs,” Dr. Reaser’s analysis says. “Our analysis finds that even this conclusion of feasibility cannot be supported on the basis of the 803-page study.”
“Given the sizeable financial risks associated with the many uncertainties involved in a CCA, the city should wait, or work with the local utility on potential alternatives that avoid incurring such serious financial jeopardy."
