Our Joe Mosca Is Taking Some Political Heat In His Encinitas City Council Reelection Bid

As perhaps you may recall, former Sierra Madre pol Joe Mosca was appointed to the Encinitas City Council by one of the San Diego County political machines there because, well, because they wanted to. You certainly know how that works. So technically Joe isn't running for any kind of reelection because so far he hasn't been elected to an office in Encinitas yet.

But goodness, why quibble? The happy news today is there is a peppy campaign effort in Encinitas underway to dethrone this two-town carpetbagger and send him packing to his next exciting political opportunity. Maybe in El Centro. Or perhaps Slab City.

The following vibrant flyer was revealed to us on a blog yesterday called Encinitas Undercover, which can be studiously perused by clicking here. It certainly is not very complimentary of the small city politics lifer who once upon a time claimed that he loved Sierra Madre with all of his heart, then quit and left the country.


One more thing. See that artistic photograph of Our Joe? .50c will be awarded to the first person who can identify exactly where and when that picture first appeared.

  1. Joe is at a Sierra Madre city council meeting with that gorgeous lighting. Couldn't tell you when...trick question! In one of his more infamous moments, I'm sure.

  6. Does Joe “love” Encinitas like he “loved” Sierra Madre? Asking for a friend.

  7. Oh, oh I know! I know where that picture came from!! The Mod took it as a screen shot of one of Joe's hissy fits.
    Please don't call him "our" Joe.

    1. Must be nice seats. Joe always wore a comfortable smirk when seated on one.

  9. Of course he wants to spend a bunch of money on expansion. That's Joe's style.

    1. 1) It's a process.
      2) It is state law. We'll be sued.
      3) You hate gays.

  10. Darn it, to say exactly when and where about that picture, I'd have to stomach searching the Tattler for all Joe Mosca articles. Too grim.

  14. Trump wants to eliminate birthright citizenship. We can do better.

    Let's eliminate birthright inheritance. It will level the playing field, give everyone an incentive to strive, and stop us from being ruled by a perpetual wealth class.

    At the very least, cap it at, say, $1 million. If junior can't make it with a $1 million head start, why give him more?

    1. Stealing private property? You really don’t get freedom, do you?

      Delete
    2. It's only private property when the owner is alive. How much "freedom" does the constitution confer on dead people?

  15. I recall the "Say no to chaos and divisiveness" " Concerned about the recent rise in hostilities in our city"
    The "Sierra Madre Bulletin" " Exposed Deuxamis Mechants Publications- 280 W. Sierra Madre Blvd" "I was shocked after being handed recall papers" "I was a bit taken back and shocked as anyone would be having served on the City Council for 10 months and making every effort to be the type of City Council member that your city wants and needs"
    Joe voted against a proposal calling for a referendum to put the City's Downtown Specific Plan, once completed, on a ballot for voters.
    "Those supporting Mosca's ouster say he did not make good on campaign promises to support taking the DSP to a popular vote".

  16. Wish the citizens of Encinitas good luck. Important to let every voter know what is at stake for your community. Unite & Educate.

  17. 7:28am, 7:30am, 8:17am, 8:26am, 8:29am - welcome all newbies to Sierra Madre, it is obvious that you never had the pleasure of meeting Councilperson Joe.

    1. Joe cared deeply about Sierra Madre. Until he didn't.

    2. No, it’s just that Joe is irrelevant.

    3. Yes. Little has changed.

      Delete
    4. The City Council continues to be irrelevant. Important calls are made by the City Attorney.

      Delete
    5. Actually, important calls are made by local developers. They build McMansions that sit empty and idle; although they do park cars in the driveways and move them around to make it seem like someone lives there.
      One uses his “home” as a warehouse to store furniture for his staging business. Their tentacles run deep....

    6. The City Attorney hardly works in a vacuum.

    7. The only vacuum is the one that sucks up attorney fees.

  18. Wolf in Sheep's clothing is not irrelevant. Don't leave the door open to the hen house.
    Joe Mosca did damage to this town.

    1. You mean the one that would supposedly fund the Library, but would really put money into the General Fund where it would be spent willy nilly?

    2. Taxes are vibrant.

    3. It’s wont be spent willynilly. It’s going to CalPERS as a pension tax.

  20. We did our best to warn Encinitas!

  21. Joe is using the same tactics that he used in Sierra Madre, the bait and switch. Who is banking the payroll on Encinitas road repair, who ever they are you can bet Joe Mosca is in their back pocket.

  26. Encinitas Undercover has a new post up - they have got Joe pegged just right.

  27. I recognize the look on Mosca's face. That was his expression when he was congratulating himself about something, maybe about how much he loved our village.

  28. R E C A L L , wait just dont vote for Joe.
