Encinitas City Attorney Glenn Sabine Steps Down to Assume Full-time Position in La Mesa

Encinitas, CA – After serving as Encinitas’ part-time City Attorney since January 1999, Glenn Sabine is stepping down from the dais in October to assume a full-time position as City Attorney for the City of La Mesa. 

“I’m going to miss the constant challenges and opportunities that I routinely experienced as Encinitas’ City Attorney, as well as the friendships and collegiality that I developed over the years with past and present City Councils and staff,” Sabine said. “I am very grateful to the fine residents of Encinitas that enriched my role as City Attorney with their active engagement. It has truly been my pleasure to serve and I am proud of the great city that Encinitas is today.”

Mayor Catherine Blakespear stated, “I’ve valued the institutional knowledge that City Attorney Sabine has provided while evaluating community issues and conflicts, along with Glenn’s positive attitude and his results-oriented approach. He’ll be missed here at the City of Encinitas. We wish him only the best in his new role in La Mesa.”   

Sabine & Morrison, Sabine’s law firm, has also served as general counsel to the San Dieguito Water District since January 1999. Sabine has indicated that he will step down from this position as well.  Sabine, a native San Diegan, holds both a Master’s Degree in City and Regional Planning and a Law Degree from the Ohio State University.



Located along six miles of Pacific Ocean coastline in northern San Diego County, Encinitas has an approximate population of 63,000 and is characterized by coastal beaches, cliffs, flat-topped coastal areas, steep mesa bluffs and rolling hills. The city was incorporated in 1986, drawing together the communities of New Encinitas, Old Encinitas, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Olivenhain and Leucadia.
