Del Mar Mayor stuns longtime reader

Did I read this right, Del Mar residents and business owners can now schedule personal meetings with the mayor, Ms. Lee Haydu, as reported in your Feb. 7 issue? Apparently I did because I read her column twice in disbelief.

All I can say is, this is the boldest and most laudable new idea to come out of City Hall since Del Mar became a city in 1959.

Bold and laudable new ideas at City Hall are about as common and expected as government abolishing taxes.

This will, of course, add major demands upon her time and responsibilities as mayor of our problem-plagued city.

I think every Del Mar resident and business owner should salute Lee Haydu for thinking and acting like a leader and imaginative public servant, rather than just another presence at the table.

  • What were the odds?
    I think we’d all agree that no one should have to worry about being run over by a motor vehicle in their own shower. I’m a world class worrier but until it almost happened, it never occurred to me to worry that a stolen car would crash through our front fence and stop inches from joining me in the master bath. This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
