Op-Ed: Thank You, from Your Next Encinitas City Councilwoman

A few words of gratitude from Lisa Shaffer.

I am honored to have been elected by the people of Encinitas to serve on the City Council. I ran my campaign based on hard work, telling the truth, and playing by the rules. I look forward to serving on the City Council in the same way. We have tough decisions ahead, and I am committed to ensuring that all our voices are heard as we move forward with updating our general plan and addressing other challenges.

Congratulations to Tony Kranz and Mark Muir on their election.  I’m confident they will serve the city well. I want to thank everyone who voted for me, and especially my family and all my volunteers. Many people opened their homes to host meet & greet events, others walked with me in neighborhoods across the city and stood on street corners waving campaign signs. This election showed that while we all agree that Encinitas is a great place to live, people want some changes in how we govern.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve Encinitas.

Thank you,

Lisa Shaffer

Thanks Lisa for setting an example for how to run a campaign. Ultimately, you put your faith in the people of Encinitas, and they came through. We know there will be tough decisions ahead, but we know that all sides now have an equal seat at the table. That's the way it should be.

You will be a welcome addition to the city council. Just be sure you don't let that Gaspar woman boss you around.

Congratulations to you, Lisa, and to all of us who worked so hard to elect you and to replace Jerome Stocks!

Congratulations Lisa, we are very pleased that you and Tony were elected to Encinitas city council. Your campaign was run as all campaigns should be run - telling the constituents your plan and why they should vote for you. It is a credit to the citizens of Encinitas that the big outside money smear campaigns were ignored and the right folks were elected. Excellent campaign.

Congratulations Lisa. Am I correct in thinking that the installation of the new council members will be Tuesday, December 11th? If so, I hope to be there to watch you and Tony take your seats on the dais.

Great job on a positive campaign. The long grassroots efforts paid off.
