Encinitas Chamber’s State of the City Highlights Bold New Mayor Gaspar and Booming Business

The well-earned San Diego reputation of business and local government working together was on full display this week at the Encinitas State of the City ceremony. A relatively young city, Encinitas incorporated in 1986 and is known for its locally grown poinsettias, breathtaking coastline and a growing economy. The Encinitas Chamber hosted the ceremony which featured a number local businesses providing food and beverages including Ballast Point, Rita’s of Encinitas and Betsy’s Tacos.

Last year, city residents voted for the first time to directly elect their mayor. Mayor Kristin Gaspar addressed attendees on Tuesday and provided a look at the year ahead and the exciting projects underway that will add golden opportunities to the already sterling reputation of Encinitas. A special thanks to Encinitas Chamber CEO Bob Gattinella and his wife Mimi for inviting our office to the event and providing the opportunity learn more about issues facing Encinitas and how our office can partner with local businesses to foster an environment of golden growth for years to come.
