A simple choice

San Luis ObispoMay 19, 2013 

The best choice for replacing Andrew Carter’s open seat on the SLO City Council is a simple one. Paul Brown is the only candidate with the proper background of council experience, business knowledge and traditional fiscal beliefs to fill the position. This is why Andrew Carter endorsed Paul. Andrew knows that only Paul Brown can make the transition seamless and will provide the balance on the council that must be maintained.

Andrew was elected, in part, because of his pragmatic approach to financial reform and fiscal responsibility. His sensible, inclusive and fact-based style kept the council balanced, helping members to work together. Like Andrew, Paul will act independently to advance a sensible, fiscally prudent agenda that is in the best interest of all the citizens of San Luis Obispo.

I have known and worked with Paul for many years and I know in my heart he deserves your vote. Logic says that when something isn’t broke, don’t fix it. The SLO City Council has run very smoothly for the past two years, and will continue to do so when we elect Paul Brown back to the Council.
