Five years ago, City Council candidate Jeff Vasquez charged through San Juan Capistrano, a man on a mission. He walked the city's historic streets with a vengeance, a door-to-door effort that swept him into office as the top finisher in a field of 14. By his own account, he was fired up, a political newcomer who became the first Latino ever to serve on the City Council despite the city's rich Mexican heritage.

Integrity: the quality of being honest, upright and sincere. A scant few weeks ago, I attended a City Council meeting. It happened that that very day the lawsuit between Carlos Negrete and the city was dismissed. At the meeting, I listened to numerous emotional outpourings by the City Council members, with the exception of Jeff Vasquez, praising the totally wonderful job Steve Julian has done, is doing, and will continue to do for this city. A vote of confidence second to none I have personally experienced.

Prompted by a letter from Sheriff Brad Gates, the City Council this week voted to endorse Measure J, the half-cent sales tax referendum that would go toward construction of a new county jail in Gypsum Canyon. "Not only do we need a new jail, but it has been proven over and over again that our current facilities are sub-standard," said City Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer, one of four council members who voted to endorse the measure. Councilman Jeff Vasquez dissented in the 4-1 vote.

The limit on campaign contributions from individuals to City Council candidates was increased this week from $100 to $250 after a 3-2 council vote. The council voted Tuesday night to rewrite the 19-year-old city ordinance and increase the limit for the Nov. 3 City Council election. Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer said he proposed the new limit to update the law. Hausdorfer, who is not up for reelection, said he believes that $100 in 1973 had nearly the same value as $250 today.

The city has laid off one employee and cut the hours of four others to trim $100,000 from the budget. A full-time senior planner was laid off this week, while three full-time community service coordinators and a full-time secretary in the city manager's office saw their hours reduced to between 20 and 35 hours per week, City Manager George Scarborough said Friday. The cuts were not unexpected.
