Dalager's boasting on his campaign mailer knows no boundaries and for him truth and reality are slippery subjects:
"Construction of our new library is also underway, on time and on budget. Environmental reports on the Hall property are complete, and I am anxious to get that park opened!"
The library is far from being on time. In fact, the library is a black eye for the current council. The library will be years late and its construction costs are millions more than they had budgeted. This is one reason the City of Encinitas recently had to borrow $20 million (kinda easy to now say everything is on budget when you borrow all that money).

ENCINITAS – The new library is falling further and further behind schedule.
Although the facility was projected to open this fall or next winter, the city hasn't chosen a company to build it. And city officials are scrambling to figure out how to pay its skyrocketing construction cost, which has doubled.
Construction of our over designed bling bling library has just begun. On schedule eh?
Dalager claims everything is right as rain wih the Hall property.
The Hall property EIR is "complete"? Oh really? Can we see it then?
Check this out:
Dan started saying the EIR was done well before I got this response.

Dudebro Dalager just got caught lying on his campaign mailer.
