San Marcos names Economic Development Manager
San Marcos, CA— Tess Radmill, former Executive Director of Cardiff 101 Main Street, has been tapped to serve as Economic Development Manager for the City of San Marcos.
“We searched far and wide for the right person to step into this important role,” said City Manager Jack Griffin. “In Ms. Radmill, I believe we’ve found someone that understands the San Marcos vision –economic development that is good for our residents and good for our economy—and has the talent and skill set to help get us there by building a program from the ground up.”
Stepping into the new role Aug. 31, Radmill said she is ready to get to work in one of North County’s fastest growing cities.
“San Marcos has truly been innovative and embraces an entrepreneurial spirit that is unique,” said Radmill. “I am excited to be a part of the many upcoming projects that will shape the San Marcos community for years to come.”
As Economic Development Manager, Radmill will have a key role in attracting and retaining businesses in San Marcos. She is also charged with developing and managing an economic development program that aligns with city goals while capitalizing on the city’s partnership with the Innovate 78 initiative. Innovate 78 is a collaborative effort between the five 78 Corridor cities–San Marcos, Carlsbad, Vista, Escondido and Oceanside—that is focused on boosting economic prosperity in North County.
“I’m eager to hit the ground running and look forward to collaborating with and learning from the other Innovate 78 cities,” continued Radmill. “One of my first priorities will be to meet with San Marcos businesses to learn their goals and how the city can better support them.”
For the past seven years, Radmill has served as the Executive Director for the Cardiff 101 Main Street Association, a nonprofit that works with local government and business owners to improve the community’s overall quality of life.
Under her leadership, the Encinitas nonprofit grew from its grassroots infancy to a state-certified Main Street organization. By building strong partnerships with local business and community leaders, Radmill was able to grow the program to include two full-time staff members and an annual operating budget of $250,000. She also helped the City of Encinitas develop its economic development efforts as part of a steering committee, lending her expertise and guidance to city staff.
“I am proud of Cardiff 101 Main Street and my experiences there have given me a unique understanding for what it takes to successfully develop and nurture economic prosperity,” said Radmill.
Born and raised in North County, Radmill holds a bachelor of arts from Claremont McKenna College. She is also a recent graduate of Cal State San Marcos’ Leadership North County, a program that connects local leaders so they can work collaboratively to build a stronger region.

Extended Learning at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) is excited to announce a new free forum series, “Fresh Perspectives on California’s Water Future.” The series was developed in collaboration with local industry leaders and takes an in-depth look into topics that are rarely presented or discussed in open public forums. Policy makers, experts and water industry leaders will share their unique perspectives on three separate evenings, while actively engaging the audience and encouraging questions and participation.
All forums will be held in the CSUSM University Student Union from 6:30 – 8:30pm.
September 9th, 2015: The Psychology of Water – Until recently, primary barriers to California’s water future were mostly technical and financial. However, as traditional sources of water supply become more difficult to acquire, today’s water industry is facing new obstacles in terms of cultural attitudes and orientations. Deep seated predispositions about nature, waste water recycling and even color can offer stiff resistance to viable alternatives. A panel of regional experts will explore this topic, provide examples and discuss solutions while encouraging audience interaction.
October 14th, 2015: The Politics of Water – An exploration of the shifts and changes taking place in the state’s water power structures, players and coalitions.
November 18th, 2015: The Economics of Water – who pays and who benefits? This evening will delve into an anatomy of the financial aspects of water supply, competing market interests and pricing strategies.

Package Theft – San Marcos
Be on the lookout for a woman who was caught on camera stealing packages in San Marcos. Someone who knows the suspect might recognize her and the getaway car.
The theft happened on Monday, August 10th just before 3:00 p.m. in the 1100 block of Ariana Road in San Marcos. The homeowner ordered several items on Amazon.com and when her packages didn’t arrive, she checked the delivery status of her order online. She discovered the items were actually delivered on August 10th. She checked video surveillance around her home and discovered the theft. She then called the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station.
The video shows a woman getting out of a four-door, white or gray older model Mercedes Benz with a sun roof. She walks up to the front door, stuffs UPS packages into a tote bag and gets back into the passenger side of the car. The suspect is described as a white female in her 30s with brown hair. She was wearing a black top and shorts.
Keep these safety tips in mind when ordering items online:
• Choose a shipping option so you can sign for delivery. Request friends and relatives sending you a package to do the same and ask for a tracking number.
• Keep an eye on the package’s delivery status. Sign up for email or text alerts.
• Ship the package to another location such as your office if you won’t be home to receive it.
• Leave special instructions on where to deliver packages (behind bushes, side or back patio, etc.).
• Choose delivery pickup.
• Insure your packages
• Get to know your carriers.
• Be a good neighbor. Look out for each other.
• Report suspicious activity or vehicles to the Sheriff’s Department. Call (858) 565-5200.
It is a federal offense to steal mail or packages delivered by the United States Postal Service (USPS). These investigations are handled by the United States Postal Inspection Service.
On Tuesday, Aug. 25 and Wednesday, Aug. 26 traffic lanes along Rancho Santa Fe Road at 9th Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction between 9 pm and 7 am to accommodate water line repair work by Vallecitos Water District.
Although two-way traffic will be maintained on Rancho Santa Fe Road, some minor traffic delays are anticipated and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during work hours.
For more information please contact Vallecitos Water District, www.vwd.org.
