I cannot be the only one that is thrilled the campaign commercials are over, signs are being removed, and finally my mailbox isn’t full of campaign literature.
Let’s all be grateful election season is over. Savor this time, because the 2024 election coverage will start soon (ugh). I hope you were able to cast a ballot in this year’s election. No matter what side you’re on or who you support, it’s our American duty to get out to the polls!
I want to thank everyone who ran for office. It takes effort to step up and participate in our democratic process. Whether it’s running for County Supervisor, City Council, Mayor, Water District Board, or any other elected position, I want to thank you. A lot of time is spent away from family and friends as you meet constituents.
I am honored to be re-elected as District 5 Supervisor. I have always said, I will do this job if the residents of North County want me to continue and I am looking forward to building on the progress we have made over the past four years.
While we’ve accomplished a lot in the past four years, I know there is more work to be done. I look forward to addressing homelessness, building more housing, keeping our neighborhoods safe, and working on many other issues.
I believe the best communities are active communities. So, please reach out to my office if you have any questions, comments, or concerns and we will respond shortly. I never take this job for granted and am honored to be your representative for another four years.
San Diego County District 5 Supervisor Jim Desmond
