San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors candidate Dan Carpenter has taken a page from the Donald Trump campaign book. He’s launched a nasty, personal and negative campaign against Adam Hill, and it’s about as ugly as Trump’s hairdo.

After stating he was going “to get a refreshing message out to the electorate,” Mr. Carpenter has now turned to some of the worst mudslinging I’ve seen.

Adam Hill has a great record of balancing concern for the environment with real job creation. And he’s done it for years despite all the trumped-up personal attacks he has endured.

I guess Mr. Carpenter is desperate to get attention and distract from his own record as a flip-flopper on the SLO City Council. And now he’s flip-flopping on his own campaign promises.

Sorry, Dan. If I want a stream of insulting political BS, I’ll turn on cable news.

Rise above, Adam.

Alan Thomas, San Luis Obispo
