Linda Austin submitted this letter to the Tribune, New Times SLO and Santa Maria Sun on March 3 and 4. It’s been almost 3 months, but her letter was never published.

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.
