State of North County Address
It’s the time of year for reporting where things stand in North County and an opportunity to present my vision for the coming year. That will be given on Thursday, March 26 at 10 a.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center, 5970 La Sendita (Thomas Bros. 1168 D-3).
As you know, the County of San Diego is faced with unprecedented financial challenges, brought on by the State’s outrageous $42 billion budget deficit. In an attempt to put its reckless financial affairs in order, the State is planning to defer payments for programs that counties operate using money the state is obligated by law to provide. Unfortunately, this is standard operating procedure. For several years, the state has withheld millions of dollars that counties need to provide social services and other programs that are the State’s responsibility.
In this edition of “The Word,” I’ll share what we are doing to keep the County fiscally sound. Other stories include a milestone in our efforts to build a new library in Fallbrook, the celebration of the new and improved McClellan-Palomar Airport, and strengthening our safety net for abused, neglected or abandoned children.
I hope to see you at the State of North County Address on March 26 at 10 a.m.
