Letter to the editor: Keep an eye peeled on mayor, Encinitas


It was a bit of haughtiness, as one of the first acts of brand-new Encinitas Mayor Kristin Gaspar’s was an attempted power grab at the wonderful job Lisa Shaffer has been doing as the Encinitas point person at SANDAG.

Should we be surprised? Aside from being virtually funded by the entire real estate industry in her recent campaign, Ms. Gaspar has acknowledged personal and political ties with the vitriolic former mayor, Jerome Stocks, who was voted out of office.

Keep an eye peeled, Encinitans, as the olde English expression goes. We have two years of mindfulness before us.
