Campaign Updates

This afternoon, after a long two weeks, the Clerk-Recorder of San Luis Obispo County has certified the recent June 2018 election results.

I wish to begin by thanking all of the dedicated volunteers who gave so much to this campaign and my campaign manager who worked to organize all of their efforts. These dedicated volunteers walked countless precincts, watched ballots being counted, organized events, etc., and I could not have prevailed without them.

Additionally, I wish to thank my family and friends for having to listen to campaign issues that dominated the conversations for the last year.

Last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to the voters of the Fourth district. I look forward to representing them again for another term to accomplish our mutual goals.

As we close this chapter, I am headed back to Indiana as my father is back in the hospital again after a very difficult year, so today is bittersweet to say the least, but it definitely puts life back into perspective.

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.

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.

The Scripps Institute came out with a recent report that says the mist blowing on the Trilogy neighborhood in Nipomo is from the ocean and not the sand dunes. It is biological spread by the winds blowing over the ocean waters. The same winds that created the dunes.

The APCD has admitted that their earlier claims of toxic levels of crystalline silica were wrong, but this is after those claims were repeated by the court and the California Coastal Commission. These false fears were promoted by local politicians who have battled to shut down the dunes, an economic machine the county cannot afford to lose with the impending shutdown of the Diablo Nuclear Power Plant.

Many people living in Trilogy remain fearful that if off-road vehicle riding at the dunes is not stopped, they will suffer health issues. Many are unaware that silica is not blowing on their neighborhood from the sand dunes.

And while it appears the APCD used the faulty reports to increase their budget, Jimmy Paulding’s campaign is using those faulty claims to win votes. Instead of promoting the facts, his campaign is painting Supervisor Lynn Compton as a science denier who does not care about her community.

Linda Trahey

Joe Rouleau submitted this letter to the Tribune and New Times SLO on March 26, but it hasn’t seen the light of day (yet).

We have the same question, Joe: why is self-proclaimed “independent” Jimmy Paulding paying the chairman of the SLO Progressives – an outgrowth of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign – to run his campaign?

Hmm…

— — —

What hat is Jimmy Paulding’s campaign manager wearing when he directs a protest that disrupts a SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting, Nick Andre campaign consultant or Nick Andre the chair of the SLO County Progressives?

While the Progressives have a right to march and protest, they do not have the right to interfere with other people’s lawful right of assembly. “Every person who, without authority of law, willfully disturbs or breaks up any assembly or meeting that is not unlawful in its character, is guilty of a misdemeanor,” California Penal Code Section 403.

District 4 candidate Jimmy Paulding, sheriff candidate Greg Clayton and DA candidate Mike Cummins are all paying Andres’ company Kumani to help with their campaigns. In turn, both the Democratic Central Committee and the Progressives have endorsed Paulding, Clayton and Cummins.

When the Progressives and the Democratic Central Committee discussed endorsements, did Andre promote his clients over others? Does Andre direct donations made to the Progressives or the Democratic Central Committee to candidates who in turn use the donations to pay Andre? Either way, Andre’s antics do not pass the smell test.

Supporter Lynn McGill submitted this letter to the Tribune on March 3 and New Times SLO on March 5. We haven’t seen it in print yet. Have you?

While supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson attempted to force a water district promoted by Stewart Resnick and other big money concerns on North County voters, Supervisor Lynn Compton listened to residents and voted no.

When hundreds of our neighbors voiced concerns about the dangers of more oil tankers traveling by rail to an oil refinery in Nipomo, Lynn voted against a proposed rail spur.

While some county residents pleaded for more mental health services, a group of residents in Templeton voiced fears that a short-term mental health facility would be disruptive to their community. Lynn weighed the concerns with the need for more mental health services and voted to approve the new facility.

While the public voted to allow recreational marijuana use, two county supervisors wanted to mold the county into a marijuana destination point and were pushing for a primarily unregulated pot industry. Some residents began to complain about the water use and the smell of neighboring marijuana grows. Lynn worked to produce a comprehensive marijuana ordinance that permits pot businesses while protecting the rights of county residents.

Vote for Lynn Compton for supervisor, by far the best choice.

This letter was initially submitted to the Tribune by Lynn Compton supporter and 4th District Judie Hagstrom on April 7. She was informed her letter was over the word count allowed, so she made revisions and resubmitted it on April 10.

Today, her letter still has yet to be printed or posted online, so we are posting Judie’s revised version here for you to see.

Success in campaigning for office often has absolutely nothing to do with the ability to do the job once elected. What it does is give insight into the ethical values of each candidate. It only takes a couple of words to cast doubt through false accusations and innuendo; doubt that can leave negative impressions and undermine the true integrity of those running campaigns based on the issues and actual experience. Unfortunately, Jimmy Paulding has come out on the short end of the ethical stick in his attacks on incumbent Lynn Compton.

Lynn has been an excellent supervisor. She has successfully represented us on issues such as assuring that funding held for south county improvements is actually used for that purpose. Lynn actively involves herself in local activities so she knows the needs and desires of District 4 residents, and she consistently votes to assure the health and safety of her constituents. She is the voice of reason on the Board, does not allow other supervisors to bully her into silence, and spends the time necessary to assure informed and thoughtful representation of all San Luis Obispo County residents.

My opponent is lying to smear my reputation with falsehoods regarding my commitment to protecting San Luis Obispo County’s scenic beauty and the environment. Last month, I voted to support a resolution that clearly stated our opposition to expanding offshore oil production along our coast. The resolution failed to pass, not because of me, but because Supervisors Hill and Gibson voted against it. The headline from the Tribune article says it all.

READ MORE: SLO County’s liberal supervisors just rejected a statement opposing offshore oil

What my opponent states in his campaign literature is a lie and complete misrepresentation of the facts. You can watch the video from our Board Meeting where we discussed the proposed resolution online, and you can see my vote.

His lies also ignore the letter our Board of Supervisors sent to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke clearly stating our opposition to expanding offshore oil production along our coast.

What is true is that my opponent’s “renewable energy plan,” i.e., “Community Choice Aggregation,” which seems to be his number one issue in this campaign, would cost our families 30% more for electricity in addition to increased county personnel and time costs.

My opponent says he has new ideas for the future, but in reality his ideas are old and tired: higher taxes, increased fees and more burdensome regulations that drive up our cost of living. Our families and small businesses simply can’t afford his politics.

Sworn Deputy Sheriff’s Association endorses Lynn Compton for 4th District Supervisor

Damian@lynncompton.com

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.

Beginning March 6 and running up to the June primary, candidates are required to file Fair Political Practices Commission reports notifying the public of large political donations of $1,000 or more given to a candidate. Such donations must be reported within 24 hours of receiving that donation. The purpose is to identify any large contribution, and its source, as the election enters the final months to ensure transparency.

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.

GEORGE STRICKLIN, NIPOMO

Here’s a link to the original article online.

I am so tired of the political bullying and lack of civility in county government. For years, supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson were on the winning side of most votes. Even so, they regularly demeaned and bullied constituents who voiced opposing views.

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.

JOANNE TOBIAS, MORRO BAY

Here’s a link to the original article online.

I read Jimmy Paulding’s arguments against Lynn Compton on his website, and it is clear he is either completely uninformed or attempting to manipulate voters.

Paulding discounts Compton’s success in bringing developer impact fees for parks back to Nipomo. Paulding labels Lynn’s success as a “shifting of taxpayer dollars from one pocket to another.” Developer impact fees for parks are not taxes paid by residents, they are a fee paid by developers for each home they build.

The developer fees are required to be spent on parks to help support the increased population from the development.

Supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson took fees paid for homes in Nipomo and used the monies for items such as a skate park in Los Osos and a bike trail in Avila Beach. Hill and Gibson contend the residents of Nipomo can use the parks and trails built miles from their homes. Compton disagreed and has been working to bring the fees back where they originated.

But Mr. Paulding, those fees were not from taxes paid to the county and cannot be used for other purposes. Do your homework.

TERRI STRICKLIN, NIPOMO

Here’s a link to the original article online.

On the same day an opinion in The Tribune asked where Supervisor Lynn Compton was on funding for Nipomo parks, Lynn Compton was at public workshop where an architect unveiled three design options for a Nipomo skate park. For more than a year, Lynn has battled supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson for monies to pay for the park’s design.

After discovering development fees from construction in Nipomo were used to build a skate park in Los Osos and a bike trail in Avila Beach, Lynn fought for South County children. This year, Lynn secured funding for the design. Next year, she plans to secure funding for construction.

To say that her opponent Jimmy Paulding gets things done because he has worked for a little more than a year as an analyst for an out-of-county building contractor is a stretch. His limited out-of-county project management experience does not mean he can get things done in San Luis County.

While Lynn was at the workshop discussing the three skate park options, Jimmy Paulding was notably absent. Thank you, Lynn. Keep fighting for our children.

Arroyo Grande Retired Police Chief Steven N. Annibali Endorses Lynn Compton for 4th District Supervisor

Damian@lynncompton.com

Arroyo Grande, CA – Lynn Compton’s campaign for re-election as 4th District Supervisor announced it has received the endorsement of retired Arroyo Grande Chief of Police, Steven N. Annibali.

“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.”

Ret. Chief Annibali retired last year after serving since August 27, 2007. Annibali served his community and worked hard to protect Arroyo Grande.

“Chief Annibali’s leadership and service to the people and to the community of Arroyo Grande will be recognized for many years to come in so many ways,” said Lynn Compton. “I have profound respect for him, for all that he was able to accomplish for the people of Arroyo Grande, and I am grateful for his endorsement and for his confidence in me.”

Retired Chief Steven N. Annibali joins a growing list of public safety personnel, community leaders, business organizations and taxpayer advocates who have endorsed Lynn Compton’s campaign for re-election.

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.

As the mother of twin girls born in Nipomo, Supervisor Lynn Compton is acutely aware of the shortage of parks in Nipomo. Working on behalf of our children, she was able to procure funds for a Nipomo skate park, Jack’s Helping Hand park, the Dana Adobe and the Nipomo Community Park. While supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson sought to have fees raised in Nipomo spent in their districts, Lynn was able to get a majority to agree to spend monies in South County.

What Lynn most excels at is responding to the concerns of South County residents. After residents voiced their concerns about crime, Lynn sought and received approval for a new sheriff’s substation to be built in Nipomo.

She also listened to the concerns of residents in the Huasna Valley area and Nipomo regarding water, crime, other issues caused by a handful of large marijuana grows. She worked to promote a balanced marijuana ordinance that protects our quality of life while permitting hundreds of marijuana grows.

Lynn has the experience and knowledge to serve South County residents. Vote for Compton for 4th District supervisor.

Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association again endorses Lynn Compton for 4th District Supervisor

Damian@lynncompton.com

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.

A recent letter to the editor (“Where are those South County parks?” Jan. 31) attacked Lynn Compton’s efforts to restore funding in the county budget for parks in District 4.

The developers of Trilogy, Black Lake and Cypress Ridge paid nearly $11 million in public facilities fees over the past 12 years. These fees are intended for projects, including parks, fire and libraries, that have a nexus in the area where development occurs. Instead, these fees were taken from the residents of South County and given to fund projects far away, like improvements to the Bob Jones Trail, Cambria Library and a boardwalk.

Supervisor Compton is the only reason we found out about this “theft” from the people of the 4th District. Because of her hard work, we have been able to receive $150,000 for the design of a skate park. More money will come as the county budget allows. Sadly, the original $11 million has already been spent on projects in other districts.

Without Lynn Compton, the people of District 4 would be forgotten. She’s the person we need representing us on the Board of Supervisors.

2016 was an exciting year for the County of San Luis Obispo. Watch this brief message from the County’s 2016 Board of Supervisors Chair

To view video click here

In his recent New Times letter “Partisan politics have infected this county” (Feb. 2), Laurance Shindeman’s citation of Judge Judy’s book Don’t Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining was a cute device. Alas, it was Laurance’s blatant partisanship that was on full display in confirming his own hypocritical bent. With his words, Shindeman peed on his own leg.

His tiresome rant against the SLO County Board of Supervisors majority is now the constant refrain of his highly partisan campaign to return Supervisor Adam Hill to majority control of the county by advocating the election of Hill’s hand-picked opponent to Supervisor Lynn Compton—Jimmy Paulding. Unfortunately, Jimmy’s made the mistake of accepting Hill’s support.

Electing Paulding to “take the partisan out of politics”? Please!

Then came Dan Cook’s response to Shindeman’s piece. Whining about the board denying Hill his coveted position as board’s chairman, thereby depriving his constituents of “fair representation before the board”? Give me a break!

Do you guys actually believe what you are writing? What are you smoking?

No one was more responsible for his and his constituents’ demise than Hill himself. His boorish behavior and his studied, deliberate alienation of the votes he needed from the board was a self-inflicted wound—the same wound that his voters did to themselves by electing Hill to the board.

Yes, it’s true. It’s Shindeman’s brand of partisan politics and hypocrisy that have infected this county via the unprincipled, single-minded campaign being waged against Compton.
