Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Your vote counts

By Donna Lacki - Nipomo

We have big issues to tackle in Arroyo Grande, Nipomo, and Oceano: Oceano Dunes pollution, Phillips 66 rail car proposal, water issues, farmers spraying with toxic chemicals, health and safety, and many more difficult situations.

Elect Caren Ray for District 4 supervisor to serve our communities. Caren Ray is the most qualified candidate with the skill set required for this challenging position. Intelligence, credentials, experience, and the ability to think clearly make Caren Ray the only choice for this position. You have to really like people and really want to help, and I don’t see the other candidates possessing any of these qualities to take on this challenge. Caren Ray is a fearless, tireless, methodical listener who cares deeply for our communities, our health, and our prosperity.

Caren Ray is non-partisan; she researches every decision thoroughly and will not make decisions based on her party affiliation. No other candidate can match her abilities and her compassion. Caren Ray’s priorities are to tackle major issues that she knows we face, and at the same time has goals and dreams of growing our communities by attracting more businesses, jobs, parks, and beautification to our cities. Your vote on June 3 for Caren Ray ensures you have the right candidate to help us grow our Central Coast lifestyle that we all know and love.
