Groups grade elected officials on water-quality issues


 — Four current and former San Diego City Council members received an A yesterday for their efforts to improve water quality, according to a report card issued by a coalition of environmentalists.

San Diego Coastkeeper and the local chapters of the Sierra Club, Surfrider Foundation and League of Conservation Voters sponsored the analysis, which was compiled by a consulting firm. The report covered votes on water-quality issues from October 2007 through December 2008.

The top scores went to Toni Atkins, Donna Frye, Ben Hueso and Scott Peters. Jim Madaffer received an A minus.

Atkins, Peters and Madaffer are no longer on the council.

Two current councilmen, Tony Young and Kevin Faulconer, each got a C.

The council’s overall grade was B plus, the same grade given to Mayor Jerry Sanders.

For the first time, the environmental groups also evaluated San Diego County’s supervisors. Greg Cox and Pam Slater-Price each got a B minus, the highest mark. Their colleagues were given a C or C minus.

The grades for county supervisors were based on votes cast in 2008.
