Deputy Sheriff’s Association endorses Debbie Arnold and Adam Hill
April 11, 2012
Supervisor candidates Debbie Arnold and Adam Hill collected endorsements from the San Luis Obispo Deputy Sheriff’s Association on Tuesday.
In March, members of the employee union group, which represents correctional officers and dispatchers, interviewed candidates from both the 5th and 3rd supervisor districts.
Following the interviews, the association voted to endorse Debbie Arnold over her opponent, incumbent Supervisor Jim Patterson, according to SLO Deputy Sheriffs’ Association President Michael Thompson.
“We believe that the 5th District needs new leadership to get us through these uncertain times,” Thompson wrote in a letter to Arnold. “We believe that Debbie Arnold has the personal and professional experience required to bring a business-minded, public safety oriented approach to county government. The San Luis Obispo County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association believes in Debbie Arnold and the solution-oriented leadership she will bring to the board when she is elected on June 5.”
The association is also endorsing 3rd District Supervisor Hill in his race against Ed Waage, a Pismo Beach city councilman.
“Supervisor Hill has been an incredibly strong voice for public safety in our community and someone who always takes the time to understand our challenges, especially with the impacts from state realignment,”Thompson wrote in a press release.
