Congratulations to our new commission appointees! Unscheduled vacancies were created when New Encinitas Commissioner Maryam Babaki of the Traffic and Public Safety Commission and Leah Bissonette of the Environmental Commission resigned earlier this year. Both Commissioners demonstrated exemplary public service and will be sorely missed! Thank you for service to Encinitas!
To fill these vacancies on Wednesday, Environmental Commissioner Christina Simokat was appointed to the Traffic and Public Safety Commission. There were many outstanding applicants, but Christina, a New Encinitas resident, had demonstrated multiple times that she is passionate about the environment and public safety.
To replace her seat and the one vacated by Bissonette on the Environmental Commission, we appointed Christian Adams and Inge Bisconer to the Environmental Commission.
I look forward to the great work all these commissioners will offer the city in the coming years! Thank you for volunteering your time and energy to our city!
