Readers Poll

Should SLO city terminate building inspector Chris Olcott for his 2016 bar assault in Avila Beach?

  • Yes, that behavior is unacceptable and he should not be a public employee.
  • No, the city should let the justice system determine his punishment.
  • I don't know. I trust the city to conduct a fair investigation and make the right decision.
  • Fired from his job? He should go to jail for years!
