Candidate forum for Encinitas Mayor to be held Sept. 25


The Leucadia-Encinitas Town Council is sponsoring a question and answer forum for the candidates in the race for Mayor of Encinitas. The forum is being organized and moderated by the League of Women Voters.

The Mayor’s Candidate Forum will be held on Thursday, Sept. 25, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the Community Room at the Main Encinitas Library, 540 Cornish Drive, Encinitas.

This is the first time Encinitas citizens will be electing their Mayor directly. Previously the Council selected one council member to fill the roll on a rotation basis. The elected mayoral term will last two years. The Mayor will vote as one of five members of the City Council, but will also perform duties such as working with the City Manager to set Council Agendas and officially represent the City with other public agencies and at public functions.

The Forum is open to the public and free of charge. Each candidate will make a statement and answer questions from the audience.
