I am a long time resident of San Diego and I have always hated that phony. I remember when she was mayor she did everything she could to block the Indian tribes from building a casino in San Diego. She was holier than thou speaking against the evils of gambling. Her dirt bag brothers were involved with card rooms in San Diego.
She is a lesbian and did not have two coins to rub together until she married a rich old geezer with cancer.
Roger Hedgecock defeated her in the mayoral race back about 1984. The the San Diego Union Tribune was owned by Helen Copley (another lesbian who got rich by marrying her boss, the newspaper owner). The newspaper got the political hack district attorney to indict Hedgecock on phony campaign law viotations. He was convicted on one count and forced to resign. She steps in and becomes mayor. Hedgecock’s conviction was later overturned.
As mayor 0’Connor flew around the world visiting airports on “fact finding” tours and accomplished nothing. We still don’t have a decent airport, but she put on a Soviet Art Festival and a Faberge Egg show. She was a huge fan of Ted Kennedy. She makes Barbara Boxer look like a paragon of virtue.
I cannot wait to hear Rodger Hedgecock’s comments.
I used to live in SoCal...( Orange Co. Riverside Co. )
Hedgecock used to have a radio show....He still around?
I remember when that happened to Roger Hedgecock. I lived in San Diego county at the time. I had forgotten why I disliked her.
Robert Peterson did not have cancer (leukemia) when he married her, but he was 30 years older and she was his third wife, and one huge mistake. I’d call it his biggest mistake. We could never understand that marriage and never approved. You’re facts are correct regarding Roger Hedgecock and I was for Roger Hedgecock.
One day, I visited Bob in the old Marston House on 7th Avenue and had a stack of Hedgecock for Mayor signs in my VW Convertable to take home to Pacific Beach to place around my neighborhood. Maureen was there and she was pleased at all when she spotted those signs...lol.
The O’Conner’s were always trash. Her oldest brother, Denny was shot and killed at the old Campus Drive-In theater way back in the late 50’s or 60’s. The family lived on Dove Street in lower Mission Hills.
