Bruce Gibson is perhaps the most embattled politician this county has ever known. He took years of abusive attacks from his constituency in Los Osos over the sewer. I agreed with the anti-sewer contingency; my genuine concern was over the financial impact of the sewer costs and the ripple effect of Los Osos residents loss of discretionary income.
My career was a local investment adviser for many years and I know Jeff Eckles from when we both were in the profession. I respect Jeff, he’s a nice person. Sincere.
However, we’ve seen what happens on a national level when there is change for the sake of change. It’s a careless way to choose our leaders.
Bruce Gibson stayed with what he knew, though he endured more contempt and opposition in those years than most of us will have in a lifetime. And time has proven he made the right decision; the sewer did not ruin the water supply and there has been no financial collapse.

I trust Bruce’s judgment, I respect his intelligence and I believe his heart. Let’s keep a good man in his place. Keep stability and a level head as our District 2 representative. Keep Bruce Gibson in office.
