Al Fonzi’s May 14 letter to the editor extols the current 5th District supervisor, Debbie Arnold, for representing “North County political views,” not those of San Luis Obispo city residents.
Last time I looked, my district includes nearly half of the city, about 20,000 residents. I agree with Fonzi’s observation that Arnold votes as though she represents North County political views solely, but I strongly disagree about that being a reason to vote for her. That is a good reason NOT to vote for her.
The 5th District residents deserve fair representation, and that is why I strongly support Eric Michielssen for supervisor. Arnold does NOT take into account all residents’ concerns, or weigh and balance the facts, but votes, knee-jerk fashion, according to the dictates of North County political extremists. Eric Michielssen, on the other hand, has a balanced, centrist, inclusive, fact-based perspective. He will do an excellent job of representing all the people in his district, North County and city residents included.
