Nipomo resident Michael Winn has applied to be appointed to serve the remainder of the term of the late county Supervisor Paul Teixeira.

Winn, 72, served as a Nipomo Community Services District director and as a member of the county Water Resources Advisory Committee. He served on both of those boards for
12 years.

He is a communication studies lecturer at Cal Poly and has a master’s degree in English from Cal Poly.

Winn said the two biggest issues facing the county are the falling water levels in the Paso Robles aquifer and the proposed 102-home Laetitia subdivision near Arroyo Grande. Winn has questioned whether there is enough water for the subdivision.

Winn joins Arroyo Grande residents Caren Ray, Michael Byrd and Mark Millis, who have already announced their interest in the post. Others may have applied to Gov. Jerry Brown, but his office will not reveal the number of applicants or their names.

No timeline has been set for filling the seat. Whoever is appointed will serve until the term expires at the end of 2014.
