Re: “District 1 candidate Consuelo Martinez: “I’m literally listening block by block””

Thank you David Ross, for your interviews and articles with all Candidates running for Escondido Mayor, and 2 vacant City Council positions in Escondido , and publishing series of separate articles featuring Candidates in Escondido Times Advocate. Your in-depth interviews w/Candidates, and the articles based on those Interviews are vital to inform Registered Voters in Escondido well before the Registrar of Voters sends out “Vote By Mail: Ballots in a few short months.

Your series of Candidate Interviews is an impressive salute to early, complete, and fair coverage, so your readers, residents and registered voters in Escondido and Sphere of Influence (SOI) will be well informed, based on evidence based facts.

This statement reflects both my personal opinion and is expected to be consistent with position expected in next 5-8 weeks when Escondido Chamber of Citizens (#ECOC) will be asked to prepare formal Candidate Endorsements. ECOC Endorsements are not automatic or contrived. ECOC Board carefully considers if each Endorsement is deserved, based on merit, public service record), and Board hopes to interview Candidates during weekly ECOC weekly Meetings.
