U-T endorses Gaspar for Supervisor

Union-Trib: Roberts ethics problems, Abed temperament, Gaspar best choice.

This has been the most interesting race in the county, with Roberts' problems, Abed getting the Republican Party backing, and Gaspar getting the backing of the business PACs.

Tough to call but our gut says Gaspar beats Abed to get into the runoff with Roberts. In November, it will be a question of whether Roberts' ethical problems outweigh the awesome power of Supervisorial incumbency.

  1. Interesting, as the Republican party backed Abed. My strategy is to vote for her in the primaries, and if she beats Abed she will have to leave the Encinitas City Council so she can campaign. Then, depending on other things I may switch my vote to Roberts leaving her highness high and dry.

    1. Abed did little campaigning in Encinitas, other than those small signs. I got no mailers from him; he must have emphasized Escondido and places where he perceived a better chance for support; he sort of wrote off Gaspar's home turf.Bimbo I hope she loses this round, but a lot of money has been thrown at her campaign. The electorate (all 30% that bother to vote) are uninformed - the glossy mailers may put her over the top.

    2. Gaspar comes in third. Vote her out in November.

    3. She will be going into a run off with Roberts. WC was correct in his prediction. Name calling only makes the person rudely commenting look like a bitter troll, probably on the Abed bandwagon. Looks as though you're the sore loser, 6:48.

  2. Bad journalism endorses bad leadership.

  3. Let the county eat her alive. She will wish she was never in politics.

    1. The bimbo will be shielded by her handlers. Do nothing politicians are common - she would be one of the worst, selling out to the developers.
      The U-T execs got to Kranz; Bimbo Barbie would be another pawn in the big boys' pockets!

    2. All you do is call names, 6:44 and 6:48. Get a life; stop condemning others and look to how you could improve your own integrity.

  4. Compared to other pols, would it be fair to say she's a horse of a different color?

  5. I never did think much of the Union Tribune. They will stoop so low to endorse a candidate (GASpar) even when they knew she lied on her campaign flyer where it states she is an educator and teacher.

    In other words, they endorsed a LIAR!

  6. Let's see which way she votes on the $90,000 worth of public art on the sides of the buildings on the sand at Moonlight Beach. Another $35,000 is unfunded for an additional two more art displays.
    If you are tired of the council's lax attitude in deciding that $135,000 of public art on the beach is more important to them that taking care of city infrastructure tell them. Don't let them waste more money on their projects to get votes in November.
    The public art at Moonlight Beach is agenda item 10F on Wednesday's council agenda.

  7. I'm tired of our city Council doing nothing about the excessive noise generated by straight pipes.

    I don't get it I thought this was supposed to be an environmentally sensitive town .

    Why won't city Council demand that the police enforce the existing laws on vehicle exhaust systems ?

    1. Yawn, give it a rest. Your constant posts are becoming more annoying than the straight pipes you so abhor.

    2. yawn... I wish... your straight pipe keep me up at night and wakes me up first thing in the morning.

      give your straight a rest and I will finally rest.

      City Council needs to wake up and take action on this issue!

    3. 9:47 Not nice. I don't like the loud noises myself and wish they would do something about it.

      Crawl back into your hole. You sound so angry.

    4. The straight pipe thing is an issue for the cops. That's not directly an issue for the council. If you want to pursue it, you can speak at council.

  8. I received two mailers from Abed today attacking Gaspar's credibility and accusing her of being a liar. And I received one from Roberts lumping Trump, Gaspar and Abed together.

    Tomorrow's the day, get out and vote for who you feel is the least of all possible evils.

  9. you dumb ass. over 50% of the voters already did. Those mailers are a total waste of money and pollution.

    4. Uh, excuse me, but one of those rants was a hate filled vomit spew that attacked someone I know personally and it was slanderous to boot. Calling out someone with potentially damaging innuendo by NAME is grounds for a lawsuit. But you knew that, didn't you. Thank you, WC.

    5. 12:07 doesn't respect a very important American law and tenet of what it means to be a decent person. Mommy must've been a real piece of work to have produced such a nasty baby.

  16. Interesting all this ugliness comes out on a thread about Gaspar. Interesting, but not surprising. She does have her fans.

    1. 5:40 I hope the GASpar "fans" know that she is a LIAR. She is not an educator and she is not a teacher.

      I didn't know being in a political race was "fan" based. I had always heard that they were "supporters." This is not the Ms. America pageant.

      Delete
    2. Her fans are the developers. She's got them lined up out the door. They don't care how she lies, they care how she votes. Do you disagree?
