  • "People often think Californians are pretty dumb - especially the Texans. If they find out this happened, and this guy winds up doing something bad, I suspect Texas will retaliate against California for it. Obviously they won't commit violence, but they won't just suck it up. It's a bad California law and the Governor knows it. You might see a bunch of one way bus tickets to SLO with a unique passenger list."

  • "Look at the history the CSD's just in this county. That taxpayers have lost millions at the hands of those who thought they could manage their community. Case in point...Los Osos. Then Oceano, and now Cambria. When does this government sponsored maleficence and thievery end? It ends when the CSD's are done away with."

  • "Everyone is wondering if Hill will show up at tonight's Chamber controlled forum (i.e., no debating allowed, only selected questions by those running the show). The only chance to get a real stab at Hill is when the candidates are allowed opening and (maybe) closing statements. - In any event, I'm praying that he gets the chance to collect unemployment next year!!"

  • "Debbie Peterson should just step aside and let Dan Carpenter take Adam out in the first round. She was not good for Grover Beach why would she be any better for a whole district? She thinks more of herself than most of the people in Grover think of her. Adam has already gone after Dan so it is to late to stay clear. To stand clear just sends the message to the bully his tactics are acceptable."

  • "Remember the Hill fundraiser at Wooly's? It was sponsored by NTK (obvious typo). NKT has done a respectable job keeping his name from being too closely tied to Hill, but he's in the game - make no mistake."

  • "I wait to see if Mr. Hill can come down to The AG GB chamber tonight for the forum, he has yet to show his face in south county and in actuality DOES NOT represent us, because he will not come listen to us. I too wonder where law enforcement is concerning Mrs and Mr Hill, but then we know the sheriff is going to look the other way unfortunately, but where is local law enforcement. I think it is time to start asking tough questions to our law enforcement such as What the hell are you doing about this? I hear people say this is small town politics, no this is incestuous political relationship I have never seen before. It is like running a marathon and one person hands the baton to another to keep running the race.Yet in reality, it is not being handed off to new runners, just a few are running so it goes from runner 1 to runner 2 to runner 1 again and then runner 2 again. If we want different results we must replace the runners because they are now running in a circle and really not advancing anyone but themselves. Stop letting developers decide what is best for the majority of us, take back your control and vote Adam Hill out of office."

  • "Citing “serious questions” about whether UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi violated policies on employment of her family members and the use of contracts to remove negative information from the Internet, UC President Janet Napolitano placed Katehi on leave Wednesday night pending the outcome of “a rigorous and transparent investigation.” In a two-page letter to Katehi, Napolitano wrote that she would be placed on leave for at least 90 days as a probe is conducted into the employment of her daughter-in-law and salary increases for her that have boosted her pay by $50,000 over two and a half years. Napolitano also wrote that she had concerns about whether Katehi made “material misstatements” about her role in UC Davis spending $175,000 on an attempt to scrub the Internet of negative stories about the school – and Katehi herself – resulting from the 2011 pepper spraying of students.

  • "As it was recently stated by Bernie Sanders (Demo-socialist)," unfortunately the poor don't vote." I find it safe to say the Hill is focused on the wealthy voters and I read that he doesn't like it when others try to capture their ear. Yes Hill plans to be re-elected, his opponents best strategy might be to stay clear as in a bull fight. This reminds me of the joke about the Mexican Restaurant near the arena: The dissatisfied custom complained about the smaller food portions on the plate, the waiter replied, "sometimes the bull wins.""

  • "I believe that it would be in the publics best interest to require other special districts, CSD's and or the County to reconsider their money pot before allocating all dollars. Clearly the money pot is filled by the public and to segregate various expense categories does not create different money. Management dollars are clearly the same monies as is required by, for example, the distribution of water (revenue for the money pot). Therefore a State mandate to cut back on water use equates to a funding cut in management as a whole too, not a raise in fees to compensate. The color of money used by the taxpayer is only one, as should be the case when it is budgeted by Government. To often Government accounting resembles divide and conquer, conquer more for personal gain."

  • "It takes courage to stand up to a bully like Adam Hill and I commend Jim for taking a stand and being counted as yet another Citizen who has had it with Hills Corruption. But I'm more positive. Positive that the SLO District 3 voters have finally had enough of the Bully on the Board and are embarrassed by Hills public and private dealings. Either of the two running to replace Hill would be an improvement and District 3 citizens would once again have someone looking out for them, rather than himself."

  • "Can anyone out there explain to me why these public service jobs pay such ridiculously high salaries? I mean, is there some rocket science or some such involved? Differential equations? Administrative work, a quarter million bucks a year? I'm a Cal Poly Engineering grad; no way I could pull a quarter million a year around here..."

  • "You don't have to worry there are plenty of others from the public sector making several 100's of thousands in retirement, so the money you think you should be getting to being taken care of by many others, how else could the public sector pension system be several billions underfunded"

  • "Of course more pay, that is all these gov't people want to do is give away more of OUR money. I think they should be elected so when the people don't like the job they are doing we can get rid of them. Either that or if we let the city manager hire them it is not with more money since they won't have to run a campaign."

  • "But be on the lookout folks...like a Vampire it's not dead! They will just wait till the flap calms down and try to sneak it through without the bright lights of scrutiny. Now we find irregularities....do we have another Los Osos CSD on our hands here? Oh...and where is the Tribune on this story? When is the last time the Tribune broke a story of public tax dollars being wasted? They are the establishment they should be policing...the watchdog is dead."

  • "OMG; while I'm grateful that this apparently very troubled young man will not be released in our area, I'm very concerned that there will be another headline attributed to the actions of this disturbed person. As much as I'd like to blame the judge here, apparently she is just following the law, which is what she is charged to do. I do agree that his threats against the Governor should have been investigated as potential felonies, perhaps they were, but it sure doesn't seem that way. Good luck to all those that will be living near this murderer."

  • "You better put an ankle bracelet on this psycho! I remember when that crime happednede in SLO. They beat the old guy over the head with the trucks on his skateboard, then padlocked his front door shut so he couldn't get out for help. Then steals his car and probably almost killed some motorists in the process. Then he threatens to kill the governor, himself, etc. “It is our hope that Mr. Holguin is remorseful for his brutal acts, that he fully appreciates his new freedom and that he will commit himself to living a productive and crime-free life.” LOL This kid was a wackjob back in 2005 and is still a wackjob today. SMH"

  • "Ummmm, yeah, because urinating next to a dude who thinks they are a woman is just like getting raped, yeah exactly the same. I remember that time I had to urinate near a man, yeah it was just like that time I was physically assaulted and raped...yeah, pretty much the same thing....geez."

  • "If Holguin sent the criminal threat to the gov when he was 22 or 23 (2014-2015) ("you better hope i never see you i will shoot you with a real gun"), wouldn't that be a new felony ADULT charge of 422PC? "A "criminal threat" is when you threaten to kill or physically harm someone and 1.that person is thereby placed in a state of reasonably sustained fear for his/her safety or for the safety of his/her immediate family, 2.the threat is specific and unequivocal and 3.you communicate the threat verbally, in writing, or via an electronically transmitted device. Criminal threats can be charged whether or not you have the ability to carry out the threat...and even if you don't actually intend to execute the threat.""
