My name is Olga Diaz and I am running for Mayor of Escondido!
I was elected to the City Council in 2008, and re-elected in 2012, by residents who want a government that is open and responsive. I have been a tireless advocate for open space, parks, trails, libraries, arts and core services that make Escondido a city with soul where families thrive and businesses grow.
The image of the City of Escondido is closely tied to its elected Mayor, who makes decisions that affect the quality of our lives. Whether it’s public safety, infrastructure, water rates, zoning, pension funds, housing density, mobile home rent review, ridgeline development or appointments to local and regional boards and commissions, the Mayor plays a decisive and public role.
As the Mayor of Escondido, I will encourage people to let me know what they think, what they want, what they need. I will return a sense of community to Escondido residents and work to engage every neighborhood in community planning activities. And, as Mayor, I will make sure you feel welcomed and heard at City Council Meetings.
Thank you for your support. I look forward to working for you!
