The mother of former Centre City Development Corp. President Nancy Graham has died, according to a published report.
A federal grand jury is investigating Graham's relationship with the developers of two major downtown projects, according to our media partner voiceofsandiego.org.
Graham told the media she resigned July 24, 2008 because of her mother's ailing health. Her mother passed away Tuesday, Jan. 20 according to the Union-Tribune.
Federal prosecutors from the U.S. Department of Justice's Public Integrity Section in Washington, D.C. requested extensive records from CCDC relating to Graham's employment and involvement in two developments: Ballpark Village, a $1.4 billion project adjacent to Petco Park, and 7th and Market, a $409-million downtown skyscraper that has since been canceled, voiceofsandiego.org reported Friday.
Graham didn't report her business ties with the projects' developers in required financial disclosure forms. She faces five ethics and conflict-of-interest charges lodged by former City Attorney Mike Aguirre.
The federal subpoena CCDC received Jan. 15 commands the agency to produce "any and all records relating to Nancy Graham's employment with CCDC and her involvement with the 7th and Market development and/or the Ballpark Village project, to include any contact or reference to contact between Nancy Graham and development companies associated with those projects."
