San Marcos is the North County hub for business. Many federal, state and county government offices are logically located in San Marcos. Cal State is beautifully set in our City. San Marcos will continue to be seen as a destination for schools and dining, we must become more attractive to larger employers who see the value not only of a highly educated community, but a high quality of life for its employees. As a business owner in the City, I recognize the special needs for our local businesses and will use my knowledge and skills to assure all businesses, while contributing to the culture and life in San Marcos, also get a fair shake in the City.
