Consider Christianson

San Luis ObispoMay 8, 2013 

A wonderful feature of democracy is that almost anyone is eligible to run for public office. As voters, our task is to determine what the most desirable qualifications are for the people we elect to represent us.

I’m voting for Carlyn Christianson for San Luis Obispo City Council because of her experience and her commitment to the city she lives and works in. A 24-year resident of SLO, for the past 10 years she has served on the city and county planning commissions and has an intricate knowledge and understanding of the important issues our city faces. She has volunteered hundreds, if not thousands, of hours on local initiatives, causes and projects.

I want to reward a local citizen who has worked selflessly and tirelessly to help make our community a better place. If you plan to vote in the upcoming election (ballots are mailed May 20), consider Carlyn Christianson.
