Filner, Gloria Settle Score



    Filner, Gloria Settle Score
    San Diego mayoral candidate Bob Filner went to vote with city councilman Todd Gloria and Filner's fiance Bronwyn Ingram.

    It appears Mayor Bob Filner and San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria have settled a spat from earlier in the week.

    Filner appointed Gloria as his first representative to the San Diego Association of Governments Board of Directors on Thursday, according to a city document.

    “I'm pleased to join @BobFilnerMayor to announce the 2013 appointments to outside agencies,” Gloria tweeted on Friday afternoon.

    Filner originally wanted Councilman David Alvarez to join him as a city delegate to SANDAG, but Gloria wanted that appointment himself. The two openly argued during a city council meeting on Jan. 8.

    "I'll be happy to talk to you," Filner said to Gloria during the meeting. "This is not a staff decision. This is right now between you and I. And I'll be happy to meet with you any time, any minute, any second."

    Alvarez was ultimately appointed as a first alternate for Gloria.
