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.

This year voters in south San Luis Obispo County have the opportunity to keep an extraordinary woman on the county board of supervisors, which is the reason I am supporting Lynn Compton in the June election.

Compton is qualified for countless reasons, but for me she stands above other candidates in three specific areas.

First, Compton knows our community and its needs. For 25 years, she has lived in South County. She built a successful business while raising her daughters and donating her time to community organizations. As a result, she understands the needs of our community.

Secondly, during her more than four years as a member of the board of supervisor, Compton has worked tirelessly on behalf of South County residents. She has supported programs to reduce homelessness, promoted plans for more parks and voted for more law enforcement personnel in South County.

Finally, Compton is an intelligent, honest, compassionate and ethical candidate. I urge District 4 voters to join me in supporting and voting for Supervisor Lynn Compton on June 5.

AnaMaria sent her letter to the Tribune, New Times SLO, Cal Coast News, Santa Maria Sun and Santa Maria Times on May 1. The Tribune asked her to make a slight revision (reflected below), which she did, on May 7.

Has the letter been published? Nope.

While it appears most politicians are focused on protecting their jobs, and not the taxpayer, Supervisor Lynn Compton shines.

Compton has worked diligently to promote our local economy. She is practical, fiscally conservative and ethical.

Her opponent Jimmy Paulding, on the other hand, is using fear mongering to garner votes. He appears to ignore not only recent scientific studies that there no toxic levels of crystalline silica blowing from the dunes on to the Mesa, but also the devastating economic impacts that shutting the Oceano Dunes State Park would have on the entire county.

Looking over his donor list, almost all live in Trilogy, a neighborhood on the Mesa whose residents have been told off-road vehicles on the Oceano Dunes are making them ill. Supervisors Hill and Gibson have battled to shut down the dunes, and Paulding would be a third vote.
Paulding wants to increase the fees developers pay to build homes, which he says will promote low-cost housing. But it makes no sense that increasing the cost of building a home will create low-cost housing.

Compton wants less out of our paychecks and more in our pockets. Please vote for fiscal responsibility, vote for Supervisor Lynn Compton.

Despite the series of organized letters intended to defame Supervisor Lynn Compton, one might think she has kicked us Oceanans in the teeth. Hardly.
Compton has been the most responsive Supervisor that Oceano has seen in quite some time.

Just look at what she’s done for us: secured $200,000 in grants to construct sidewalks on Paso Robles and Wilmar Streets, $450,000 of competitive active transportation funds for community improvements, and $1,000,000 for the East Side Revitalization Plan. Plus a $3,000,000 FEMA Grant for resolving community drainage issues is on the way, not to mention her efforts to help finance school programs to benefit our youth.

Lynn is committed to securing more funding for our biggest project: fixing Front St. While it hasn’t helped that 11 different local, state, and federal agencies have to approve the plans for that project, she is determined to stay the course until that project is completed.

So who’s more responsive to those of us who live in Oceano? No contest. It’s Lynn Compton and we need her to be there to deliver the benefits our community needs and deserves.

Andrea Seastrand, former Congresswoman and President, Central Coast Taxpayers Association

"Lynn Compton can be absolutely trusted to fight for taxpayers, and she’s exactly the type of courageous leader we need on the Board of Supervisors. I’ve worked with Lynn for years. You’d be hard pressed to find a more honest, hardworking and dedicated public servant who is committed to making government work for the people. Many in California are attempting to erode Proposition 13 and all the taxpayer protections it affords, only to go on wasteful spending sprees with our hard-earned money. We’re fortunate to have taxpayer advocates like Lynn in our corner. Please join me in supporting Lynn Compton for 4th District Supervisor in 2018."

Katcho Achadjian, former California State Assemblyman and SLO County Supervisor

"I am proud to support Lynn Compton to represent the 4th District, a seat I once held. She’s a very hard worker, very visible in the community, and very accessible to her constituents. She's a leader with great understanding of what it takes to make ends meet, a businesswoman herself and mother of two beautiful children who were born and raised in the 4th District. She knows first-hand the issues facing our county and is not afraid of taking difficult position to benefit the people she represents. She's been a tenacious voice for common sense and is deserving of our support for another term in the office of the Board of Supervisors."

Ruth Brackett, former 4th District Supervisor and Small Business Owner

"I'm proud to be on Supervisor Compton's team. She's working hard for Nipomo and South County."

Howard Hess

"Thank you, Supervisor Compton, for your time to meet with and genuine concern for all people in the County!"

Jeremy Burns, Arroyo Grande Police Officers Association

“Lynn has proven herself to be committed to public safety. We endorsed Lynn in 2014 because she promised to keep public safety top of mind. We’re proud to support her once again, because she doesn’t just talk about keeping our neighborhoods and communities safe. Lynn makes sure that funding public safety and law enforcement is a top budget priority for San Luis Obispo County.”

Danny Richard, San Luis Obispo Chapter Director, CAL FIRE Local 2881

“Lynn’s leadership has been pivotal in providing San Luis Obispo County with the finest public safety services in the state. Lynn understands that public safety needs to be a top priority of county government.”

Steven N. Annibali, Arroyo Grande Retired Police Chief

“In my nearly forty years of public service I have found few elected officials that are both fully engaged and as approachable as you have been," said former Arroyo Grande Chief of Police, Steven N. Annibali. "You have represented the 4th District well and I enthusiastically endorse your candidacy.”

John McDaniel, President of SDSA.

"Lynn has proven herself dedicated to preserving the quality of life in our county. 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."

Jon Coupal, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

“Lynn ran her 2014 campaign on protecting both Proposition 13 and our working taxpayers. Supervisor Compton has delivered on that promise, been a powerful champion of Proposition 13 and a tireless advocate for lower taxes. Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC is proud to endorse her again.”
