September 1, 1991 | Four San Diego City Council seats will be contested in the Sept. 17 primary election. Today, two candidates in the 2nd District and two in the 4th District speak out on the issues. (The third candidate in District 2, magician Loch David Crane, was performing in Germany.) Next Sunday, the opinions of the candidates in Districts 6 and 8 will appear
Incumbent Ron Roberts, 49, is an architect and a former partner at SGPA, a major San Diego architectural firm. He was elected to the City Council in 1987. Roberts has a master's degree from UC Berkeley. He lives in Mission Hills. Stretching from Nestor to the La Jolla foothills, it is no exaggeration to say that District 2 "has it all." District 2 contains our beach communities, Mission Bay and San Diego Bay, and protecting them is basic to San Diego's lifestyle.

County Supervisor Ron Roberts appears likely to challenge Mayor Dick Murphy's bid for re-election next year. Roberts joins Port Commissioner Peter Q. Davis as a rival to Murphy, whose reelection seemed likely until recent wildfires exposed weaknesses in the city's fire protection system. All three are Republicans. Roberts filed paperwork Monday allowing him to raise campaign contributions.

Rich Grosch is no stranger to monumental effort. In the early 1970s, he and his wife devoted 18 months of painstaking, day-and-night work toward building themselves a 19-ton, 44-foot sailboat that they intended to pilot around the world. The trip was dashed when Grosch was involved in a serious auto accident just weeks before departure. By then, the couple had lived on the vessel for years, sailing it up and down the California coast.

In a season of cynicism, San Diego voters are picking a new mayor, and the issue of honesty in high office has pushed aside the concerns about crime and urban sprawl that have dominated previous mayoral campaigns. On the strength of a squeaky-clean image, Superior Court Judge Dick Murphy appears to be running dead even with, or possibly even a few points ahead of, county Supervisor Ron Roberts, according to polling done for local radio and television stations.

With no discussion, the San Diego City Council on Monday agreed to create a "joint-powers authority" to plan, establish and manage the proposed San Dieguito River Valley Open Space Regional Park. The council appointed members Abbe Wolfsheimer and Ron Roberts to fill its two vacancies on the new agency, which will include representatives from the county and the cities of Escondido, Poway, Solana Beach and Del Mar.

Praising San Diego City Council candidate Ron Roberts as "someone who knows how to say 'no' to developers," Mayor Maureen O'Connor on Monday endorsed Roberts in his 2nd District race. But she stayed neutral in the three other council contests on next Tuesday's ballot. O'Connor's sole endorsement Monday provided a rather anti-climactic ending to nearly a month of waiting by the eight council candidates who had gone calling on her at City Hall shortly after the Sept.

With one eye on their reelections and the other on next year's political calendar, San Diego City Councilmen Ron Roberts and Bob Filner hope that impressive showings in this month's council primary could propel them toward campaigns for higher office in 1992. Though Roberts and Filner insist publicly that they have no definite plans beyond winning second four-year terms in the Sept.

For the first time in recent memory, the race for mayor here has not developed into the customary hand-wringing debate over "Los Angelization," the code words for snarled traffic, polluted air and runaway development. With home construction at its lowest since 1982 and the economy of the state's second-largest city in a tailspin, the perennial tension between environmental protection and rapid growth has been pushed aside in a wide-open mayoral race.

Years before he became an architect--or, for that matter, even knew what architecture was--San Diego City Council candidate Ron Roberts received his first lesson in what "architecture was not" when his family moved here in the early 1950s.

Two days before last Tuesday's San Diego City Council election, Councilmen Bob Filner and Ron Roberts did what they had been doing for months: knocking on hundreds of doors in their districts, searching for votes in their reelection campaigns. That same Sunday afternoon, Councilman Wes Pratt attended the San Diego Chargers' football game--where the home team's loss was hardly a good omen.

Roberts on Tuesday announced his candidacy for reelection, a race that is widely viewed as a prelude to a mayoral bid next year. Flanked by community leaders who praised his performance during his first four-year term, the 2nd District councilman said he intends to use this fall's campaign to "debate the ideas, issues and challenges of importance to the neighborhoods."

For the second time in less than a year, San Diego City Council members tackled the politically sensitive task of redistricting Tuesday night, narrowing their options but deferring a decision until at least Friday. By a unanimous vote, the council decided to largely restrict its debate over how to redraw district boundaries using the 1990 new census figures to three maps prepared by Councilmen Ron Roberts, Bruce Henderson and Bob Filner.
