County supervisor candidate Mike Zimmerman will share his vision for the South County at a meet-and-greet today in Arroyo Grande.

The event will be held at 227 E. Branch St., in the Arroyo Grande Village, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Zimmerman — an Arroyo Grande attorney — and Paul Teixeira of Nipomo — who is on the Lucia Mar school board and the county parks commission — are running to represent the 4th District on the Board of Supervisors.

They are seeking to replace Katcho Achadjian, who is finishing his third term. Achadjian is seeking a seat in the state Assembly.
