Our Supervisor Gibson
February 7, 2013
OPINION By KATHLEEN WELLES
I live in District 2 in San Luis Obispo County. I have never been to one of our county board of supervisors meetings before but feel the need to write this letter after hearing Supervisor Adam Hill blatantly discount other citizens voices that spoke at the supervisors meeting last week. Calling their concerns to be those that are a small minority that do not agree politically.
Mr. Hill, I would like to let you know that there are many in our community that work while these meeting are taking place and do not have the time to attend so we may voice our opinions. I personally work two jobs.
I would like to let Mr. Hill know as well as the rest of the supervisors that many in our district coupled with the rest of the county are disgusted by Bruce Gibson and his mistress who doubles as his legislative aide.
We are disgusted by his blatant arrogance and lack of integrity. Myself and many are sickened when we read Mr. Gibson and his aides published emails, where he and his aide discuss eavesdropping on a meeting with a constituent. What????, not to mention as well as how worn out they were from an earlier interlude in the day which left Mr. Gibson, and his Aide Cherie Aispuro both unable to perform their duties. Was Mr. Gibson and his “aide,” Ms. Aispuro, part of our commercial for Viagra that was recently done at the Rock here in Morro Bay?
We are all human, and we all make mistakes. The most disheartening part of this whole ordeal is that usually when most of us make mistakes, or blatantly live a lie, there are consequences to our behavior. But for some reason Mr. Gibson and his “aide,” as well as our county counsel, seem to think that does not apply to them. Is it because the Board of Supervisors are county counsels boss? Something really stinks here.
And Mr. Gibson continues to sit up there on his throne at the county Board of Supervisor meetings as smug and arrogant as can be.
Needless to say, Mr. Gibson is an embarrassment to our district and community. Not to mention one would think a huge embarrassment to himself. His refusal to step down clearly demonstrates his lack of conscience. Countless citizen’s in our community have come forward to ask him to resign.
With the exception of Ms. Debbie Arnold. Mr. Gibson’s cohorts on our County Board of Supervisors all seem to condone his behavior. Why is that? I do hate to use the “Good Ol Boys” saying as I grew up in this county, and know many respectable, hardworking, honest men and women. Many who are ranchers, fishermen etc. Many that I wish could just take our County Supervisor Bruce Gibson out behind their barns, to teach him about integrity, humility, and honesty. Or perhaps just a simple lesson on how to be a stand-up man. Something Bruce Gibson knows nothing about.
Please Mr. Gibson, do us all a favor and resign. I am sure with all of your self-proclaimed accomplishments coupled with how “talented” you say your “aide” Ms. Aispuro is, both of you will have no problem finding new jobs.
As a footnote I find it almost amusing that Shirley Bianchi has not made any comment on her fair-haired boy , Gibson, that she so steadfastly supported in the last two elections. Where are you, Shirley?
No comment? Gee… imagine that.
