Supervisors delay action on County Clerk's Prop 8 steps

SAN DIEGO -- After two days of closed-session meetings, the county Board of Supervisors has not issued any statement about County Clerk Ernest Dronenburg’s recent controversial actions related to Proposition 8.

The board met Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss a number of items, including whether Dronenburg violated a county rule when he sent a petition to the state Supreme Court regarding the initiative. The board then decided to adjourn its closed session until Aug. 6, said Luis Monteagudo, communications director for board Chairman Greg Cox.

Supervisor Dave Roberts said last week that the board would discuss whether Dronenburg, an independently elected official, had violated the county’s administrative code by using an outside attorney to file a July 19 petition to the state Supreme Court seeking clarity about Proposition 8.
