Mayor Sam Abed endorses Kristin Gaspar for supervisor



Escondido Mayor Sam Abed an­nounced his support today for Encini­tas Mayor Kristin Gaspar for San Di­ego County’s 3rd District Supervisor contest.

“I ran for the Board of Supervisors because Dave Roberts violated the public trust and this disqualifies him from serving in public office,” said Abed last week. “Roberts abused the taxpayers, used his office to advance himself politically, and he’s refused to take responsibility for the more than $300,000 in settlements taxpayers have had to pay because of his per­sonal behavior. I am endorsing Kristin Gaspar because she is committed to good fiscal management for San Di­ego County, will protect the taxpayers’ interests, and restore trust in the office of Supervisor.”

In response, Mayor Kristin Gaspar said, “Sam Abed has been a strong voice for conservative principles as mayor of Escondido. He’s helped ush­er the city into an era of sound fiscal management and growth, while main­taining balanced budgets and creating new jobs. I appreciate his support and look forward to working with him to continue to push sound fiscal policy for the region.”
