Yes, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow... However, I don't recall a past election where the final results are still pending through the holiday, and will be into December. As the tallies are trickling in, it is trending in favor of Escondido having a new mayor. 

Though he will not be officially celebrating until all the votes are counted and the Registrar Of Voters calls the race, Paul McNamara will most likely be considering the changes bound to come his way. 

The City of Escondido has been on a positive track for a number of years. With the current council focusing on reigning in the looming pension obligation, ensuring the financial stability of the city, approving a number of infill projects bringing economic opportunities, and addressing the public safety and infrastructure needs, we trust that the new Council will continue this vision for a safe, beautiful and prosperous Escondido. 

City Council is a non-partisan public office. However, the perspective of both Consuelo Martinez and Paul McNamara will certainly change the council meeting dialogue. The chamber will also be collaborating with the council so that chamber members will have an opportunity to meet with the city leaders. 

Sincerely,

Rorie Johnston
CEO & President
