East County Leadership Council (ECLC) was formed as a nonprofit organization in 2018. Our mission is to promote discussion of policy issues that relate to the quality of life in San Diego’s East County region. In 2018 and 2019 we put on multi-partisan forums and roundtables to discuss issues such as housing and homelessness, economic development, and city planning.
In 2021, emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, we plan to continue our work with an emphasis on issues of particular importance to young people. In addition to the issues mentioned above, we also plan to explore how we might improve opportunities in education, job training, and social services for East County.
