Have You Ever Experienced Riding In An Electric Vehicle?
Often, I am reminded in little ways of how fortunate we are here in Escondido. We’re blessed with so many natural things in our lives. We live in a free and democratic country that affords us so many opportunities. Of course, we’re not immune to tough times and challenging issues, but we’re free to voice our opinions and have a path to change.

We are free to explore all opportunities and are given the tools to succeed. There is no guarantee, but there is reason for optimism, and American ingenuity is treasured by many who do not have what we have.

Through the lens of those who do not enjoy our freedoms, we are reminded of our good fortune. Let’s not forget the sacrifices made over hundreds of years to give us the freedom we enjoy right now.
These freedoms allow people to take a dream and turn them into businesses, bring in family and build a future, have access to financial markets, leverage assets to create jobs and take risks to succeed.

Yes, there are obstacles, and hard work doesn’t guarantee success, but we can fall and try again and again and again. This is what we have when we are free to succeed.

The Chamber is here to help your business succeed. Our work is never enough, and we continue to face the challenges enterprises face, whether large or small, day in and day out.

Today perhaps more than ever, I am grateful for the freedoms I enjoy and the opportunities in front of me to make this day the best day possible.

Cheers, JR

Illegal Marijuana Grows in Our Region
The recreational use of marijuana, legalized by Proposition 64 in 2016, has not eliminated illegal marijuana grow sites in many rural areas throughout the state. The illicit marijuana market continues to thrive, financed by consumers seeking to avoid taxes imposed on sales at legal dispensaries.
In our own region, huge illegal marijuana farms have been seized over the past few years...
