The other comment that Gaspar made that I found very amusing was when the subject of the Streetscape workshops were addressed, she had to admit she hadn't attended any of them. Her excuse? "I was having a baby".
I've never had a kid, but doesn't it take less than two months to pop one out?
I hope whomever reads these posts realizes most of us are not picking on Gaspar with malicious intent. Hell, I don't know WHO she is, but actions speak louder than words, and her stage act is transparent,(if you'll pardon the expression). She just doesn't have the "delivery" to convince me she has what it takes to be an effective leader who cares about our community, and by that I mean she doesn't come across as SINCERE.
She comes across as a CAREERIST.
Now I realize that some people find theise traits admirable and even a little sexy, and as the late Jack Orr said, "Elections are war". He's right, unfortunately, and many people who get elected are well versed in The Art of Winning at Any Co$t.
You remember these kind of people in high school, don't you? You didn't like them very much. You should like them even less now that you are grown up. But like the Student Body Elections, they didn't interest because they didn't mean anything to you.
Well, these elections mean a great deal, and there's still gold in them thar Encinitas hills, and there are those who want to make maximum dollar on it, and the rest of us be dammned. Look at the Nantucket blight on Andrew Street, if you don't believe me.
