The votes are in! 

The Escondido City Council has two new representatives with Mayor Paul McNamara and District 1 Councilwoman Consuelo Martinez. The council will be sworn into office on Wednesday, December 12th at 6:00 pm. 

What does this change mean for our city?

Good question! No one knows yet. It seems that most public officials come into office with grand ideas, and then realize that the approval process can slow down or entirely change their perspective. City government is non-partisan and decisions have to be made for the good of the city. Regardless of their personal wants or desires, the council is called upon to be the final rubber stamp for a project, funding, policy change, etc. that has already been through the system. 

The council members may also add items to the agenda that are in the jurisdiction of the legislative body, if at least two council members agree to add the item for discussion. So the immediate change with the new council may be that more items make it on the agenda. Council meetings are every Wednesday, except for the 5th Wednesday at 4:30 pm. The new council will hold their first official public meeting on December 19th. 

Bottom line...

"You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time."                               John Lydgate
