Encinitas Mayor Kristin Gaspar became the second North County mayor to announce an election challenge to San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts.There's still a scenario where she remains mayor: she comes in third in the June primary behind Abed and Roberts or whomever the Democrats put up to replace Roberts, then files for re-election as mayor. But she's probably got the party establishment behind her, or she wouldn't make this move.
Gaspar, the chief financial officer of a physical therapy firm that she runs with her husband, is the second candidate — after Escondido Mayor Sam Abed — to come forward to challenge the freshman supervisor.
