  • "This is why I will never understand the sanctuary "logic" as compassionate. California politicians are saying the "right" of people like Georgina to break our laws in peace is more important than that of our citizens in this case young children to not be harmed. Please help me understand why she or any illegal should be shielded?"

  • "Folks, Santa Maria is a sanctuary city, so I am a bit surprised that they allowed this woman to be deported. Santa Maria Mayor Alice Patino is famous for trying to shut down ICE in santa Maria, and the town is in the midst of an illegal alien crime epidemic. The FBI has warned Santa Marians that their town is one of the deadliest in California, but the crooked political class doesn’t care about the taxpaying public. George Recall SM Mayor Alice Patino SB County 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavignino. End Sanctuary City/Deport Stupidity"

  • "Thank you for speaking out and expressing a belief that I have held for some time. While Hill's "affiliations" may be with the Democratic Party, his actions, methods and goals have never quite lined up with liberal social program goals for the right reasons. While I am not naive enough to think that "politicians" are selfless, I have long felt that Hill's party registration is nothing but another way that he, as a political figure, tries to deceive those who don't look beyond the surface of the candidates that they support. The local Democratic Party would do well to examine what they stand for and who carries their flag."

  • "I certainly hope the tide turns a bit from giving the farm away to common sense. I know of one self proclaimed prominent elected offical in the North County who once stated to me "let them build as many as they want because I'm getting out of here when I'm done." He still is in office. Unfortunately that seems to be the mindset of Planners and elected officials because we have to wonder if they really do care? Most of these overpaid government employees move out of the state into other states that are affordable to live in. San Luis Obispo will never be the wholesome place that we use to live in. It is slowly becoming just other saturated cities. But if you are in the wine, beer, tourism business you have to be jumping for joy while donating to the elected puppets. We recently went from #1 to #5. Where might it be next year as the sanctuary status for the city takes place and crime starts accelerating? It might be time to say good bye to the good life."

  • "It is very difficult to agree on a marijuana ordinance that promotes: Bad citizenship (citizens of the United States, which outlaws marijuana.) A direct conflict with a already funded anti-drug program. Dangerous to the public by historically taking laws into their own hands."

  • "From the Grover Beach Police Dept via NextDoor App. "We wanted to provide some clarification in response to some comments about commercial medical cannabis background reviews. First, Mr. Esters is not an applicant for a cannabis permit and has not submitted an application for a background review. Detective Jerry Cornell in the Police Department is assigned to the commercial cannabis regulatory program for the City along with a Code Compliance Officer. Public discussion or sharing of individual backgrounds is not permitted by law so we cannot comment on anyone's background.""

  • "It is the belief shared by many citizens in Arroyo Grande that mayor Jim Hill, a possible witness in the DA’s action against Wallace, has been subjected to a legal tactic to condemn him because of his role in exposing the Wallace miss management of the sanitation district. The conspirators against Hill include past Sanitation board members. The objective is to undermine Hill’s creditable witness in the District Attorney’s indictment of Wallace, to defile his contribution – and that of Debbie Peterson – for pointing the finger at the mismanagement of the District! Past district board members may have criminal liability in the exercise of their fiduciary responsibilities. If Wallace is guilty then certain past Sanitation Board directors may be indicted for allowing Wallace’s mismanagement."

  • "remember: you can go far in life by doing nothing but pointing out our leaders' shortcomings. You can even make it as far as the White House. They dont care about anything but their jobs because they are so extraordinarily "kushy". they take no risks, take no one's side, and never stop smiling and giving out kind words and empty platitudes, and collecting a fat paycheck."

  • "For the last 10 years---at least it seems I've been seeing advertisements for that long----local people have been running delivery services here in SLO county. They live here, work here, pay taxes here, etc. Many of them have not had ANY contact with police of criminal activity during the entire time they've been in business. Why are these local businesses not considered for getting a dispensary? Why award the license to out-of-town ex-cons and people with a clear conflict of interest? I think we all know the answer to that."

  • "Ethical or un-ethical is not as important as what is legal. Remember most voters will forget, move or die before the legally un-ethical receive their fat check. Example: Today is a good tax year so staff recommends to raise the pension pay out formula, (by a vote, legally un-ethical). Next year the funding is scarce so now staff recommends deferred road maintenance (by a vote, this too is legally un-ethical)."

  • "They idea of anyone using "RAY" as a example , of anyone being good at any thing , just makes me insane , she is a first class idiot.. Does anyone remember the "Running hares ", and the deal of her buying the historic house, and the " E mail " where she was raising hell with the people who lived around her.. for her to talk about ethics is a joke .. Am I being clear here?"
