Re: “Let's get rid of partisanship in county politics

The choice is clear. If you want oil drilling off the coast, dust on the dunes, no choice on who to buy electricity from, and like paying the millions of dollars of ground water studies originally agreed to be paid by the Big Wine growers in Paso Robles but transferred by Lynn Compton to the General Taxpayers (thats you, District 4 taxpayers), vote for Lynn. She's your gal, and you should expect more of it in the future.
Or you can vote for Jimmy Paulding, and have a better future. Your choice.

Re: “Supervisors decline to take stance on offshore oil drilling expansion

How can anybody NOT be against off shore oil drilling in California?? And if the Feds ask for local input, why would you NOT tell them that?? Lets NOT keep Lynn Compton around next election.

Re: “We need a responsive supervisor

Jimmy Paulding is an excellent choice for Supervisor. He was raised in AG, understands the area, and is committed to solving problems. He has the educational background needed (Cal Poly), and the practical experience as well (managing a wide variety of projects). Welcome aboard, Jimmy Paulding 2018. Adios, Lynn Compton.

Re: “Partisan politics have infected this county

The rant against Supervisor Hill was a set up, with no attempt by the Chair to moderate the attack. And oh, then we deny Mr. Hill's constituents ONCE AGAIN fair representation before the board. It was a set up, then a stab in the back. Dont pee on my leg and tell me its raining.

Re: “Salud Carbajal's no vote on Kate's Law

Facts in this case are the BLM officer who owned the gun left it loaded, cocked, with no external safety, and unsecured in his car, which was broken into and the gun stolen. The gun was found by defendant next day under a bench on the pier, as he handled it the gun went off, bullet ricocheting off the pavement in front of him and striking and killing victim some distance away. Defendant claimed accidental discharge. After an extensive investigation and trial, On November 30, 2017, after five days of deliberations, the jury acquitted Zarate of all murder and manslaughter charges, but convicted him of being a felon in possession of a firearm.[57] See Wikipedia article for more.

In September 2015, the Steinle family announced their intention to file a lawsuit against the City of San Francisco, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Bureau of Land Management, alleging complicity and negligence in the death of their daughter.[63] On January 7, 2017, Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero dismissed the family's claims against San Francisco and former Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. The magistrate also dismissed their claim against ICE, but he ruled that the lawsuit accusing the Bureau of Land Management of negligence can proceed.[64][65]

Re: “Eckles to challenge Gibson for 2nd District supervisor seat

When Mr Eckles asked for feedback on his FB page, I sent him this cautionary letter. Not exactly "Overwhelming Support"


I dont know your background, but you would be entering the fight of your life, as Bruce Gibson is respected and admired throughout his district, and has the persona and experience to be a hero to most. As a multi term incumbent, with a strong approval rating and a current experienced campaign re-election staff, you might think long and hard if this is the ditch you want to expire in. .
If you have spent any time observing Mr Gibson, you will have noticed that he brings experience, rational thought, hard work, and devotion to his job. You may not agree with his politics, but most of his voters have taken multiple notes of the above and think highly of him. Tough nut to crack.

Re: “Time to speak out

I have listened to Jimmy Paulding speak several times now, and he continues to impress everyone with his broad work experience, calm demeanor, desire to work with others, and commitment to public service. Go to his site and watch a short video of his upbringing, and you'll agree that this is the person we want for south county Supervisor. https://jimmypaulding.org/about/
