Mayor, 2 supervisors discuss downtown site


Mayor Jerry Sanders

SAN DIEGO — San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders met privately with county Supervisors Dianne Jacob and Ron Roberts Monday to discuss building a downtown football stadium for the Chargers.

All three declined interviews through intermediaries after the Mayor’s Office sent an e-mail to the media about 6 p.m., 45 minutes after the session ended.

“The Chargers are a regional asset and helping them will require regional cooperation,” the e-mail said.

It ended: “This is the first of several meetings that we will have to discuss ideas for solving the significant challenges that lie ahead.”

The officials and some staff met for an hour in a conference room at the county building. They didn’t set a next meeting date, Roberts spokesman Tim McClain said.

McClain said Roberts “is interested in helping the Chargers stay in San Diego County. I can’t say that he’s interested in spending county resources. That’s not what was discussed. They met to discuss strategies.”
