Planning Commissioner Tony Brandenburg, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Joseph Mosca and retired technology executive Daniel Marotta have submitted applications for the vacancy, according to the Encinitas City Clerk’s office.We've suspected that former LA-area politician Mosca was eyeing a council seat ever since he surfaced in Encinitas in early 2015.
UPDATE: Some discussion of Mosca's history on the Sierra Madre City Council here. And Mosca donated the maximum $250 to everyone on the council majority: Catherine Blakespear, Tony Kranz, and Tasha Boerner Horvath. Well played, Mosca! It looks like the fix is in, and this is what we have to look forward to:
There's a very lively Mosca discussion going on in the comments today at the Sierra Madre Tattler.
UPDATE 2: The Tattler refutes a pro-Mosca statement posted in the comments below.
