Many Nipomo residents are concerned about the dust blowing over from Oceano Dunes SVRA, but that’s not the community’s only issue.
Last November, District 4 supervisor candidate Jimmy Paulding held a listening session in Nipomo. Bad air quality was one of the top problems identified, along with traffic (too fast in some places and too slow in others) and crime (the area feels unsafe and unsecure). Other concerns included the cost, quality and supply of water, homelessness and cannabis farming.
There were also the things that Nipomo lacks: commercial and retail development, quality schools, public transit, affordable housing, a sheriff’s substation, recreational opportunities for hikers, bikers and dogs and a vibrant downtown.
Jimmy is interested in hearing directly from the people of Nipomo so that, when elected, he can focus on giving us another thing the town lacks: a responsive District 4 supervisor.
