Adam Hill tied to phony mailer

May 14, 2012

Adam Hill

Members of the San Luis Obispo County Republican Party contend Adam Hill’s campaign is trying to influence the vote by sending out phony mailers in an attempt to give the false impression Hill has the Republican Party endorsement.

An advertising firm paid by Hill sent out the slate mailers titled “Attention Republicans: Election Day Voting Guide” to registered Republicans in the 3rd supervisor’s district. Along with a group of Republican candidates the mailer urges  Republicans to vote for Adam Hill  for District 3 supervisor.

“The mailer is a clear example of deceptive politics,” said Christopher Arend, a members of the San Luis Obispo County Republican Party. “Most voters are too busy to give mailers more than a quick look, and this mailer uses this to create an impression that it has been issued by a Republican organization.”

There are two candidates vying for the non-partisan District 3 supervisor seat and members of the  SLO County Republican Party have endorsed Hill’s opponent, Pismo Beach Councilman Ed Waage.

The Democratic Central Committee has endorsed Hill, who is actually a Democrat.

“The only thing this mailer tells us about Adam Hill is that he has stooped to paying a professional political marketer to deceive the Republicans in his district,” Arend said. “Once again, Adam Hill demonstrates the type of behavior that gives politics a bad name.”

    I apologize for getting off topic and snarky. However, I feel the article reveals more about the writer and CCN than it does about Hill’s perceived character. What were you thinking?

      I’m off topic as well, but I don’t recall anyone getting upset when CCN ran the EXACT same headline and similar article about Ian Parkinson when he ran for Sheriff.

      If it is true Adam Hill took donations from the Vendor who installed the broken KIOSK at the Airport recently then he will be investigated and the FPPC and Attorney General should indictment him and he should give the secret slush money to Prado. He is not a ethical or honest person nor does he care for the less fortunate or disabled as we mourned our fallen men and woman he partied…

    Republians can’t run away from themselves. They are the WORST in socio/economic circumstanses.
    Republicans are LIARS, GRIFTERS, HYPOCRITES, and THIEVES .

    Republicans are just transparent JERKS that hate everything except their own worthless carcasses.

    Republicans are SICK, and should have NO role in any position of relevance or power !
