Proudly serving the people of San Luis Obispo County’s 4th District.
I believe San Luis Obispo County is a very special place, and it is my privilege to serve as your 4th District County Supervisor.
For more than 20 years, I’ve been a South County resident and a small business owner. All too often I’ve seen how poor policies, pushed by special interest groups, have harmed small businesses and interfered with our families and our way of life here in the county.
Since my election to office in 2014, I’ve put my experience as an independent businesswoman, my knowledge of the agriculture industry, and my passion for our region to work, championing policies to improve the quality of life for the people of San Luis Obispo County and specifically those living in the 4th district, as we seem to always be overlooked.
I’m seeking reelection in 2018 because I sincerely believe that there is still work to be done in order to move San Luis Obispo County forward. I hope you will continue to entrust me with the job as your Supervisor and ask that you join me in my reelection campaign.
I truly believe that we need common sense policies that create local jobs, build safe neighborhoods, protect taxpayers and encourage new investment in our community, while sustainably managing our water and other natural resources, while preserving our County’s scenic beauty.
I am proud to call San Luis Obispo County home and want to make sure we all have opportunities to not only survive, but thrive here. It is my hope you’ll join me in fighting for San Luis Obispo County families for the next 5 years.

Nipomo, CA – Lynn Compton’s campaign for re-election as 4th District Supervisor has received the endorsement of the Sworn Deputy Sheriff’s Association (SDSA) – San Luis Obispo County.
SDSA represents the boots-on-the-ground officers who patrol San Luis Obispo County’s unincorporated areas, responsible for protecting and serving the community of San Luis Obispo County.
“Lynn has proven herself dedicated to preserving the quality of life in our county,” said John McDaniel, President of SDSA. “The members of SDSA are committed to protecting and serving our public through interaction with our community, providing a high quality of service, and meeting the challenges ahead. Lynn shares both our values and dedication to the safety of our community.”
“I am humbled to receive the endorsement of SDSA. These are the uniformed men and women who serve on our streets, working to keep our communities safe,” said Lynn Compton. “I appreciate their recognition of my support for our sworn officers. I promise to remain steadfast in my commitment to supporting our law enforcement officers, so they can focus on keeping our streets and neighborhood safe.”
SDSA joins a growing list of public officials, small business owners, community leaders, law enforcement and public safety personnel and 4th District residents who support Lynn Compton’s re-election campaign.
Lynn Compton is a small businesswoman, rancher, and mother of twins who serves the constituents of San Luis Obispo County’s 4th District on the Board of Supervisors. Since her election in 2014, Lynn has been a champion of common-sense policies that protect families, taxpayers and the natural resources that enhance San Luis Obispo County’s scenic beauty.
Interestingly, Jimmy Paulding has “sidestepped” this disclosure requirement, first with a mysterious, unnamed donor who pledged $40,000 to his campaign in a contest featured on Jimmy’s Facebook page and campaign website, and then with another who anonymously pledged $10,000.
So, Jimmy claims to have received two anonymous donations totaling $50,000, and both were received only days before the start of the 24-hour reporting period. The precise timing of his contest’s end (right before March 6), which triggered the $50,000 anonymous match is not coincidental.
Something stinks. Campaign finance laws are intended to ensure transparency and honesty. Nothing should be hidden for months, especially $50,000 in contributions! Jimmy Paulding, you claim to have received $50,000 worth of anonymous donations … who is buying this race? So much for transparency.

But then they lost their majority and a new board chair was selected to run the meetings. This alone has done a lot to bring some civility back to the board.
I find it quite funny that Jimmy Paulding, who is Hill and Gibson’s choice for District 4 supervisor, is painting the board majority as lacking civility. Having watched many board meetings, Hill and Gibson have spawned anything but collegiality when addressing other supervisors and the public.
Paulding, if you support Hill and Gibson’s lack of civility, maybe it’s time to get out of the race.
