Marking Sunshine Week in San Diego, Mayor Bob Filner on Thursday unveiled a new section of the city website that makes good on his promise for open government—putting in one place information on the pensions being paid city retirees as well as all lawsuits involving City Hall.

With his open-government chief Donna Frye standing beside him, he displayed what Frye called one of the most transparent city sites in the state, if not the nation.

“It’s Sunshine Week every week in the city of San Diego,” said Frye, the former councilwoman, who said she is collecting an annual pension of $31,000 as well as a salary for her new job of about $100,000 a year.
