Ray right for the job

NipomoApril 29, 2014 

Caren Ray is the dynamic representative we need to keep on the Board of Supervisors representing Oceano, Arroyo Grande and Nipomo. Caren is ethical and digs deep into issues before making decisions. Water, Phillips 66 expansion, jobs, air quality, land use, housing for working families — any and all issues need a thorough dissecting and public airing.

Since Caren was appointed to the board, of 117 board votes, 104 have been 5-0, and seven were 4-1. This is no longer a partisan, dig-in-yourheels, board. The members are working as a team and for us, versus their political parties. Major votes so far include the vesting rights vote in Paso Robles regarding the Urgency Ordinance, the Dana Adobe Visitors Center, the waiving of fees for Jack Ready Park in Nipomo and the Mesa Dunes Mobile Home Park conversion appeal in Arroyo Grande.

Caren is proving she is here to work hard and get to the truth on each and every issue.

As a member of a Central Coast farm family, I say let’s give Caren Ray four years to dig into each issue and do what is right for our future.
