Mayor Recalled in 1973 Joins City Council Race

From Times Wire Reports

A former mayor of Escondido, who was recalled from office 31 years ago amid allegations that he conducted a council meeting while drunk and interfered with police operations, will run for City Council at age 72.

Wil Mason, a State Farm insurance agent, denies being drunk or interfering with police. He said he is running for office because the council is overtaxing residents.
