Legislative proposals prompt Del Mar to seek lobbyist

By Claire Harlin

The Del Mar City Council on Oct. 8 gave direction to city staff to seek new legislative lobbying services to provide a voice in Sacramento that may dramatically change the governance of the fair board.

There may be proposals drafted as soon as January, according to a city staff report. An example of recommendations floating around the legislature is a report by the Little Hoover Commission on how to manage fairgrounds.

Del Mar Mayor Carl Hilliard said the current lobbyists, with the firm Ellison Wilson Advocacy, “are either too busy or involved to the degree that they are not fulfilling what’s expected of them.” The city has contracted with that firm since 2000.
