Other facts

The following was submitted by Lisa Shaffer:

I am committed to protecting the quality of life we all value in Encinitas. I pledge to serve with the openness, transparency and accountability that have guided me during my 30+ years as a leader, teacher, parent and volunteer.

I will provide balanced leadership, but not compromise my core values. Encinitans demand and deserve the highest standards of public safety, financial accountability, and environmental protection to safeguard our families and our community. You can trust me to remember that I work for you. I will listen and collaborate to get things done for Encinitas.

As an ethics teacher at UCSD's Rady School of Management, I understand that integrity and transparency are keys to success.  With my business background, I will be a strong partner for economic prosperity. From my professional experience in aerospace and with NASA, NOAA and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, I know the value of public investment as well as the pitfalls of big government.

I am honored to have been endorsed by former Encinitas City Councilmember Maggie Houlihan and the League of Conservation Voters.

Encinitas is a wonderful home. I pledge to keep it that way.

I respectfully ask for your vote.
