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.”
