NIPOMO, CA – Lynn Compton’s campaign for re-election as 4th District Supervisor has announced it has received the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. Lynn Compton also received its endorsement during her campaign for election in 2014.

“Lynn ran her 2014 campaign on protecting both Proposition 13 and our working taxpayers,” said Jon Coupal, President of Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC. “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.”

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is dedicated to the protection of Proposition 13 and the advancement of taxpayers’ rights, including the right to limited taxation, the right to vote on tax increases and the right of economical, equitable and efficient use of taxpayer dollars.

“I was honored to receive their endorsement during my first campaign, and now again, with my re-election campaign. I have worked diligently during my time on the Board to keep taxes low and prevent Sacramento from reducing the 2/3 super-majority vote required to raise our taxes down to a simple ‘50% plus 1’ majority vote,” said Lynn Compton. “I will continue to advocate for Proposition 13 and for lower taxes for all of the hardworking taxpayers in District 4.”

Prior to Compton taking office, the County Board of Supervisors voted to support and sponsor legislation that would have authorized them to submit sales tax increases to the voters and authorized local agencies to raise taxes with only 55% voter approval. Currently, tax increases require a 2/3 super-majority approval. Once elected, Compton worked to make sure the County’s Legislative Platform included protecting Proposition 13 and requiring a 2/3 super-majority vote to raise taxes.

Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association joins a growing list of community leaders, business organizations, and public safety personnel who have endorsed Lynn Compton’s campaign for re-election.


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 for common-sense policies that protect families, taxpayers and the natural resources that enhance San Luis Obispo County’s scenic beauty.
