Compton isn't a career politician--and that's good
N.B. Cook - Los Osos
In the race for 4th District supervisor, it seems that the main criticism of Lynn Compton is that she is not an experienced career politician. Politicians are the people who put us about $20 trillion in debt with about $80 trillion in unfunded promises. Spending money you don’t have may be a slick way to bribe voters to re-elect you, but it steals from the future and our children and grandchildren.
No, Lynn Compton is not a career politician, and she is not beholden to any political overlords in Sacramento. She is a business owner and a mom with a law degree. She will do what’s right and practical for the people of this county. While some supervisors spend about $1 million of taxpayer money for a yearlong “study” of water sources (hoping that rainfall will come to the rescue in the meantime), Lynn Compton will advance ways to get actual water for money spent. She knows that impeding water availability as a sneaky way to control growth is both dishonest and destructive. Zoning laws are the way to manage growth.
Vote for Lynn Compton for supervisor, for practical solutions, not politics as usual.
