Eric Flodine for San Marcos City Council

San Marcos Planning Commissioner Eric Flodine today announced his campaign for City Council.  Flodine has served on the City Planning Commission for 6 years including 4 years as Chairman.  Prior to this, he served 2 years on the City General Plan Advisory Committee.

Starting in November 2018, the City of San Marcos will begin electing Council Members by district.  District 2 includes: San Elijo Hills, Old Creek Ranch, Discovery Hills, Rancho Dorado, Laurels, Palomar Estates and the adjoining neighborhoods.  Flodine has been a resident of District 2 for over 10 years, and looks forward to representing the interests of residents and businesses within this area and citywide.

According to Flodine: “San Marcos is a great community to call home. We are blessed to be the education and recreation hub of North County, and this is the result of the dedication of past councils, City staff, educational leaders, teachers, business leaders and active residents.  We have experienced an extraordinary growth rate over the last 20 years.  With this growth, we have experienced growing pains.

With my education and career as a community planner, I always tell my kids, “Start with the end in mind and work backwards”.  Unfortunately, I have seen too many recent Council decisions being made in a reactionary way.  This has resulted in understandable frustration by our City’s residents.  I will work with City Staff and other stakeholder agencies to adopt forward thinking, measurable policies that will strengthen our future City decisions.

I will bring PROACTIVE LEADERSHIP to the City Council as our City continues to mature, looking ahead to the next 5, 10 and 20 years. 

My plan to make San Marcos the leading community of North County is called C.I.T.Y. and combined with resident and business input will guide my future decisions on the City Council.”
