The Tourism Marketing District or T-M-D hit the media spot light when Mayor Filner decides it was a bad deal for San Diego.

Six votes of the nine City Council votes are needed to override the veto.

Mayor Filner is also going to release his budget proposal for this fiscal year at a 9:00 AM press conference.

In court this afternoon Elizabeth Ann Masters is being sentenced for stealing almost $6 million dollars from her former employer. The 45-year-old forged hundreds of payroll checks and then fled to New Mexico where she was arrested last June.
