A small business owner and local government leader who can restore trust to the office
(Encinitas, Calif.) – Kristin Gaspar, Mayor of Encinitas and a successful small businesswoman, has announced her candidacy for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for the 3rdDistrict, currently represented by embattled Supervisor Dave Roberts.
Gaspar, who is chief financial officer of Gaspar Doctors of Physical Therapy, which she has grown and operated with her husband, served as president of the San Dieguito Water District Board and was elected to the Encinitas City Council in 2010. She became the City’s first elected mayor in 2014 and has established herself as a strong voice for smart fiscal management and investments in local infrastructure.
“I’ve been deeply involved in our community, and as an elected official over the last five years, and recognize the importance the Board of Supervisors plays in our region,” said Mayor Gaspar. “I made the decision to seek the 3rd District seat because I want to play a more active role in the important investments we need to make in our roads, infrastructure, and core county services. My experience in a private sector company and as an elected official has prepared me to work successfully with the group of Supervisors representing diverse districts.”
Gaspar and her husband, Paul, have three young children in the Encinitas schools. She’s been an active community leader serving as president of the Encinitas Rotary, chairman of the Encina Wastewater Authority Board, and founder and board member of the North County Leadership Council. She is also a 3rd grade civics instructor at Mission Estancia Elementary and a La Costa Canyon Pop Warner coach.
“As a mother of young children, I want to work to make our community safe, healthy, and prosperous for our families,” continued Gaspar. “I believe my experience as a small business owner, who understands the challenges of managing and growing a business; and my experience in local government will allow me to make a positive impact on the region.”
Gaspar has hired Revolvis Consulting to serve as her campaign strategists, Golden State Consulting for fundraising, and Competitive Edge Research & Communications for polling.
