This time of year is a special time of celebration, reflection, and looking forward. I want to take this opportunity to wish every Escondido resident a very happy holiday season, and a healthy and prosperous 2018.  

During this holiday season, let us be thankful for our diverse and thriving community.  Escondido is a great city with an excellent quality of life and strong sense of tradition. The progress we have made over the past few years has been exceptional and Escondido remains a safe, clean and efficient place to live, and to plan a future.

It is an honor and privilege for me to serve as your mayor and I look forward to continue the good work we have done with our residents, businesses and my colleagues on the City Council in the coming year.
