Escondido Picks New Councilmember

Assemblymember Marie Waldron Assemblymember Marie Waldron


Last night, the Escondido city council unanimously supported former high school boardmember, Michael Morasco, to fill the vacant council seat.    It only took one motion and vote to confirm Morasco, who applied along with 24 other candidates to fill the seat vacated by Sam Abed when he became mayor.

Many qualified candidates were interested in the position, including Kevin Svetich, a longtime Escondido Chamber of Commerce leader and John Masson, a local civil engineer.  Both have been active in community for many years.

Morasco brings indepth experience as an elected official, having been elected to three terms on the Escondido Union High School District board.   He currently owns his own successful  physical therapy business.

Politically, Morasco is solidly conservative.  He will join Mayor Abed, and councilmembers Gallo and Waldron on a fiscal and socially conservative board.
