A case for Kevin Rice

Grover BeachMay 8, 2013 

I believe there is a compelling case for Kevin Rice for San Luis Obispo City Council.

Kevin has observed and participated in the political process in San Luis Obispo city and county for more than 10 years. I have found his knowledge and insight to be invaluable in my role as mayor of Grover Beach.

Given the choice, I would vote for Kevin for any council or committee on which I serve for the following reasons:

• Nonpartisan. Endorsed by voters across the political spectrum, Kevin is willing to step back from his position to understand other view points. He will make decisions in the best interest of the people, without regard to a political agenda.

• Clarity. Kevin is able to grasp complex issues and express them concisely.

• Prepared. Kevin has in-depth knowledge of issues, is extremely well informed regarding process and champions open government.

• Public service. Seventeen years as a firefighter have honed Rice’s ability to work as a team member to quickly assess a situation and take appropriate action.

• Incisive questioner. Kevin understands fiscal accountability and has an excellent track record for demanding that government agencies protect public funds.

I endorse Kevin Rice for public office.
