Re: “Shun the character assassins

Im writing to express my disappointment with the SLO New Times for publishing the letter from Mr Dawson, an obvious apostle of Lynn Comptons conservative agenda.

Ive written many letters to the editor of the SLO New Times and thank you for publishing them. My letters Ill admit have an edge and an agenda, but I dont attack a person personally; only their positions.

I challenge the absurd positions of dune riders when they deny science, I grade Lynn Compton due to her positions on air quality, and lock step adherence to the Trump/Zinke off shore drilling initiatives; I did give her an A when she made the political calculation to deny the Phillips rail terminal project, and I take issue with the banalities of Andrea Seastrand and her dog whistle partisan rhetoric.

But I think you are off base to print the comments of Mr Dawson when he says its time for voters to do the right thing and shun the falsehoods of character assassins like Laurance Shinderman.

Nothing that I sent and you printed were false , so to be characterized as a character assassin or that my content is false is absurd.

It would be easy pickings to skewer Mr Dawson and his fact-less letter, but he's not the issue. He's entitled to his own opinion, but not his characterization in print that my letters content was false or that it was imbued with character assassination. Ive challenged Lynns positions but never her character.

Re: “2017: Political tension knocked SLO County out this year

Perhaps its time for a consensus non partisan supervisor rather than eternal troika of Arnold, Peschong and Compton.
Such a candidate is Jimmy Paulding. He was brought up and educated in the central coast. One could say that the issues and solutions are in his DNA to address real needs of the people with fresh ideas rather than political dogma. He worked on public projects where budgets, project planning and time lines needed to be met by working with Political interests along with those of the general public. His experience has been tempered by actually completing public projects rather than position papers and bickering.

If you are ready for a roll up the sleeves candidate who will address your needs rather than those of special interests, visit

Its time that you have a voice on the board of supervisors.

Re: “It's OK to be a lefty

A little more on "admiring" and publicly celebrating Trump, look at his record in the private sector when it came to housing.…

Re: “Caleb Lawrence was on point

Fonzi is a fact free zone. He's like a "bobble head" paroting the talking points of the "alt right". Never a disparaging word to challenge the doctrinaire positions of the conservatives no matter how un-Christian their positions are toward those less fortunate.
