Letter to the Editor

A clear vision

San Luis ObispoMay 15, 2013 

I am an enthusiastic supporter of Carlyn Christianson for San Luis Obispo City Council. I have known Carlyn for more than 20 years as a colleague and a friend. Carlyn’s experience and knowledge of planning issues is formidable, but it’s not the only thing that makes her the best candidate for City Council.

Carlyn is a strong person and will speak up for what she believes in, without alienating those who disagree with her. The current council is deeply divided and stuck in gridlock. Carlyn is the perfect person to sit down at the table and get things moving again. She has never been in lock-step with anyone. She will speak up and vote to do what’s right for the environment, for local businesses, for the homeless population and for all the people of San Luis Obispo.

Carlyn Christianson is not an ideologue — she is a practical problem solver with a clear vision for the future of San Luis Obispo. That vision includes open space, clean industry, healthy neighborhoods and a prosperous downtown. I urge you to vote for Carlyn and vote for that future.
