Trust in yourself. Because who else can you trust, I mean completely trust? Oh yeah, of course, we trust our family, our mate, and our faith; or do we?
With all the various ways we're connected, followed, and watched surely, the truth is out there. Right?
Every time I cut it close and end up going through an intersection on a yellow light, I'm quickly looking around not for red lights flashing in my review mirror but, searching for a flash thinking
"Uh oh, was there a camera that just caught that?" How about the 50-year-old woman caught on a car cam (yes there is such a thing) keying both sides of a brand new Tesla in the grocery parking lot; busted. Nothing goes unnoticed; every nuance of an NFL game is captured, studied and reviewed in all but real-time. Police body cams are monitoring their actions, banks are watching guards digitally, and our Ring doorbells capture anyone coming to our front doo
r...big brother is here. More and more we're face timing or video
conferencing as though speaking directly by phone not's good enough, afterall who knows if that's you
on the other end? The Internet of Things has landed.
And with all these advancements, all this technology applied to everything are we better off, are we more trusting or is trust no longer an honored elevated achievement? Are we giving up on trust? Are we leaving it to the video replay? Are the words "they trust me, or I trust them" worthless character-defining achievements?
"Trust but verify" is the famous Ronald Reagan quote and who knew how true those words would be
come. Or did the Buggles have it right in '79 when they embedded "Video Killed the Radio Star" into the lexicon of American language.
I do know this; you can trust that the Escondido Chamber of Commerce works every day to gain your support and earn your trust.

Supporting Native Americans
The 52nd Native American Day was celebrated September 27, as a time to honor and remember the contributions of California's tribal nations, to recognize their sovereignty and the tremendous challenges they have long faced, along
with their remarkable resilience and achievements.
San Diego County, with 18 reservations, covering over 190 square miles, has more reservations than any other
county in the United States - and 8 of these are within the 75th Assembly District.
Tribal sovereignty is critically important in that we recognize Tribal Governments as sovereign nations separate from the United States government, with the authority to regulate their own laws and way of life.
