Adam Hill lobbies council members

December 19, 2013

During a Grover Beach City Council meeting on Monday night, San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill gave members of the council gold medallions shortly before they made their decision to remove Mayor Debbie Peterson from the county Air Pollution Control District (APCD).

Before the meeting, Hill placed the gifts on each of the council member’s chairs. Then, during public comment, Hill asked council members to call him if they needed financial assistance for Grover Beach events and projects.

The council previously considered booting Peterson from the APCD board in August after she campaigned for a repeal of the APCD dust rule. If implemented, the dust rule would fine the California Department of Parks and Recreation $1,000 a day if it does not reduce the amount of dust blowing onto the Nipomo Mesa.

Hill sets on the APCD board and has chastised Peterson for questioning staff recommendations and reports. San Luis Obispo County Supervisors Hill and Bruce Gibson had previously lobbied the council to remove Peterson from the APCD board, according to other council members.

Two Grover Beach councilmen, Jeff Lee and Glenn Marshall, are employees of the county. Both have stated that they do not have a conflict of interest in the matter.

      This fishing village is in what fantasy land? It must be in the land of 420…..as you don’t seem to remember all the people adam has stepped on on his way up to the unbelievably lucrative “County Board of Supervisors”! Just think if he wanted to really be a politician who and how he would dump.

      It will all catch up with him.. and his protectors.. It always does. One cannot get away with so much abuse and unethical behavior for this long.Time for karma..Have you ever tried to get him to help you with a crime of senior abuse? This is the wrong way to go.. warning signs should be given to all. Do not deal with Adam Hill or Roy Ogden

    The best present the voters could give Mr. Hill would have to wait until after his next election, and the gift would be the need for Mr. Hill to find a new line of work, but actually that gift would be enjoyed by for the entire county of San Luis Obispo for years to follow
