City Hall satire

Bernard Minster (at podium) addresses resident Garth Murphy (right), portraying Mayor Jerome Stocks, at a mock Encinitas City Council meeting that was attended by about 35 people Wednesday night outside of City Hall. 

Residents staged their own tongue-in-cheek meeting to protest the actual Council meeting being canceled. A handful of residents at the gathering said the Council meeting was canceled so that Stocks could avoid further fallout from posting campaign signs early, what some residents are calling, “Signgate.”

According to City Manager Gus Vina the scheduled Oct. 17 meeting was canceled because there weren’t enough business items to be placed on the agenda. The decision to cancel a meeting does not require Council action, he said. Photo by Jared Whitlock

If the Mayor intitiative passes, expect Stocks/Gaspar to cancel more meetings and create his own little dictatorship. The only thing that will stop this is the defeat of Muir and some of the other cronies running.
