On the same day an opinion in The Tribune asked where Supervisor Lynn Compton was on funding for Nipomo parks, Lynn Compton was at public workshop where an architect unveiled three design options for a Nipomo skate park. For more than a year, Lynn has battled supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson for monies to pay for the park’s design.
After discovering development fees from construction in Nipomo were used to build a skate park in Los Osos and a bike trail in Avila Beach, Lynn fought for South County children. This year, Lynn secured funding for the design. Next year, she plans to secure funding for construction.
To say that her opponent Jimmy Paulding gets things done because he has worked for a little more than a year as an analyst for an out-of-county building contractor is a stretch. His limited out-of-county project management experience does not mean he can get things done in San Luis County.
While Lynn was at the workshop discussing the three skate park options, Jimmy Paulding was notably absent. Thank you, Lynn. Keep fighting for our children.
