As a voter, I am sick and tired of politicians who work behind closed doors to do the people’s work. Particularly at the local level, elected officials owe it to their constituents to work in a transparent and fiscally responsible way.
That is why I am enthusiastic to support local officials like Debbie Arnold, who understand that government works for the people — not the other way around. We need to elect more leaders like Debbie who are accountable to the people she represents. With our community considering major projects, it is imperative that we elect fiscally responsible officials who will handle public money with proper restraint.
Without question, Debbie Arnold has earned a second term as SLO County’s 5th District supervisor. We need leaders like her who will stand up to irresponsible spending policies.
