“San Diego Community News Network Publisher David Mannis has a long history devoted to offering top-flight community news in San Diego County, and we look forward to that continuing with his acquisition of these Mission Publishing Group newspapers,” Madaffer said in an article posted on the newspapers’ website, ScoopSanDiego.com.
The three new titles will allow SDCNN to expand into Mission Valley, San Carlos, Allied Gardens, Grantville, Del Cerro, the College Area, La Mesa and other communities.
Madaffer is president of Madaffer Enterprises, a government affairs consulting firm. He serves on the board of directors of the San Diego County Water Authority and was appointed to the California Transportation Commission earlier this year by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Not included in the sale is the monthly Seaside Courier, which launched in late 2013 and covers the coastal communities of Del Mar north through Oceanside.
