Byrd is the word
By Trudy Jarratt - Arroyo Grande
I am writing to express my strong support of Mike Byrd for 4th District supervisor. As a leader in several local good-government community and nonprofit organizations over the past 24 years, I have often worked with elected officials. I know what it takes to be a good public servant.
Mike is a local small businessman who has provided dozens of jobs to SLO County residents. He has extensive experience mediating between opposing factions, resulting in mutually agreeable decisions. He is an exceptionally ethical person. Since he’s a natural leader, his peers have repeatedly elected him to positions of leadership.
Early in his career, he was an assistant to a Kern County supervisor for eight years, responsible for working on the county budget among other things.
He co-founded Friends of Price House and Junior Achievement of SLO County. He served as a director of Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and today continues to volunteer his services to community groups.
Mike has the personal traits, the community commitment, and the professional experience necessary to provide us with honest, intelligent, and respectful representation in the 4th District. He will work for all of us! Please join me, and vote for Mike Byrd for 4th District supervisor.
