Weekly Poll
How should the SLO County Board of Supervisors address allegations that it violated the Brown Act?

Ask District Attorney Dan Dow to step in and investigate.
Hire an independent investigator to get to the bottom of it.
I trust the board members to sort it out themselves.
The allegations are political gamesmanship. Forget about them and move on.
