Former Encinitas Mayor Jerome Stocks Declares Candidacy for the 76th Assembly District

Releases endorsements from local elected officials including Congressman Bilbray and Mayors and Councilmembers

ENCINITAS, CA – Today, Republican Former Encinitas Mayor Jerome Stocks announced his candidacy for the 76th State Assembly District. Stocks announces his candidacy with endorsements from elected officials across North San Diego County, including (partial list):

Former Congressman Brian Bilbray
Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall
Former Del Mar Mayor Carl Hilliard
Former Encinitas Mayor Christy Guerin
Escondido City Councilman Ed Gallo
Oceanside Councilman Jerry Kern
San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond
San Marcos Vice Mayor Rebecca Jones
Former Vista City Councilman Bob Campbell
Former Carlsbad Planning Group Member TK Arnold

For 12 years, Stocks served as Mayor and Councilman for the City of Encinitas, CA. During this time he provided leadership on a local, regional, state and national level by serving on multiple boards including NCTD, North County Fire Dispatch JPA, San Dieguito Water District, and as Chair of SANDAG, successfully lobbying on behalf of the City as well as the San Diego Region. This history of successful public service started with his appointment in 1997 to the Encinitas Parks Commission.

“I’m grateful for the support we’ve received for our campaign,” said Stocks. “I’m running for State Assembly because Sacramento politicians are out of control. Whether it’s raising gas and car taxes, trying to force single payer healthcare on us, or wasting billions of dollars on high speed rail, they are making it harder for working families to live here. I’m a strong fiscal conservative who supports the repeal of the gas tax, smaller government, and finding smart solutions to fix our crumbling infrastructure. I have over a decade of experience fighting for smaller and more effective government.”

“Even in 2008, Jerome had the foresight to know that high speed rail was too expensive and not practical, and was the sole vote on SANDAG against endorsing the Bond Measure 1A to fund it. I’m proud to support Jerome Stocks for Assembly.” said former Encinitas Mayor Christy Guerin.

Stocks and his wife Lisa have lived in Encinitas for over 30 years with their three children. Jerome Stocks has extensive experience in public service and business. As the owner and President of J Stocks Insurance Services, Inc, since 1981 he has experience in Multi-line Insurance Coverage for individuals, families, and employer groups.

  1. Actually it’s the same Jerome Stocks who voted to reduce pension benefits in Encinitas when new actuarial info emerged.

  2. PRAY that Jerome Stocks does not obtain your email address without your permission! He is nothing but spam. Harassing and stalking me almost daily. Pathetic example of Internet corruption by “politicians” who feel they have the right to harass anyone. To think that he has purchased my email address to push his agenda. STOP voting for corrupt persons like Jerome Stocks. And Jerome Stocks, do not email me ever again or I will contact the FCC. As mandatory by you to leave this comment, you will have the email address you are spamming, as well as I have also sent you a reply to the last “spam” email you sent to me to delete my email address immediately.

  3. Everything that is wrong with the direction “politics” is going. My email address has been illegally obtained, and I am being spammed with a horrendous example of childish, manipulating claims in efforts to obtain votes. How is this allowed in the political process today? Where do we draw a line??

  4. My personal testimony related to bringing a controversial issue before the council is that Jerome Stocks is a man of character, integrity and courage. He can be counted on to represent all the people fairly, within the rule of law, and without a personal agenda. Kathy
