An Arroyo Grande marketing company that worked on the successful re-election bid of San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill has launched a new website attacking those who question Hill and his fiancée’s actions.

“Some friends have begun a new website and a political action committee to push back against the fact-free toxicity coursing through our community from the likes of the Tea Party, COLAB, Congalton, and CalCoastNews,” Hill wrote in a mass email sent out Saturday, introducing the debut issue of SLOSense. “I am interested to see what they do and whether it provides the necessary counterweight to the hateful nonsense being spewed.”

The new site, which uses the same IP address as AdamHill.us, does not identify the names of its writers. The domain is registered to Paul Hughes, who is the owner of PoliARC and a paid political consultant of Hill.

SLOSense fired an opening salvo on its Facebook page against CalCoastNews, calling it “voyeurism” to post the salaries of CAPSLO managers in a recent news story.

“Publishing the salaries of government workers, whether they’re part of a fixed narrative or not, is neither fair nor honorable,” the SLOSense Facebook page says. A sentiment not held by the state legislature, which in light of the city of Bell scandal, has touted the importance of transparency and requires government agencies to disclose salaries.

Hill threatened to destroy CalCoastNews last summer if reporters continued to investigate allegations concerning the treatment of the homeless in San Luis Obispo. He recently became engaged to Dee Torres, Director of Homeless Services for CAPSLO, one of the subjects of an on going CalCoastNews investigation.

More than a dozen current and ex-employees of CAPSLO have voiced their concerns about mistreatment of the homeless under Torres’ management, four of whom were quoted in a recent CalCoastNews story. Hill has countered claiming reporters and sources have an “axe to grind.”

“This is not journalism, this is axe grinding and score settling by four disgruntled ex-employees who were fired,” Hill said on a Facebook post. “Now that they’ve come forward with fallacious allegations, I believe CAPSLO will be able to share their personnel histories. You can’t lie about your ex-employer so as to smear the work they do.”


More retaliation from the little bully? Every time Shorty gets a little criticism his MO is to immediately attack, send emails, and make up his own rules along the way. This guy is a poor excuse for a man, He once again is showing his true colors. Past apologies are moot. You have no integrity. What is your next move Supervisor Hill? How much are your shenanigans going to cost us; the taxpayers, to feed your own ego. You are an embarrassment and piss me off. Leave, just go away.


Its really too bad these people are not able to man up and do whats right, but on the other hand I’m surprised that it took Hill this long to say something I figured he would have been running his mouth weeks ago.

If these 4 people are disgruntled former employees why are they disgruntled to start with is it because the story they are telling is true that got them fired.

There is no axe to grind, fool, this is taxpayer dollars that are being wasted here someone is trying to stick up for that and the people being stepped on.

Come on Hill you and your buddy Gibson need to grow up.


Excuse me. Does Adam Hill represent CAPSLO or the taxpayers of San Luis Obispo County?

JQ Public

Mr. Adam Hill is a Supervisor on the Board of Supervisors for the County of San Luis Obispo, California.

According to what I saw on the CAPSLO website tonight, he is not on CAPSLO’s Board of Directors.


Who can blame him for trying to keep his girlfriends job? If i was planning on marrying a woman with a $80K/year (salary and benefits) income, you bet your butt I’d do everything I could to keep her working!

(tongue in cheek comment) (:>)))))


…especially when the odds of you being re-elected again are diminishing daily….


I’m told by a good friend that every time Hill has another one of his petulant rants, COLAB gets another 10 or 15 people join COLAB.

One of Jim Patterson’s “unintended consequences” What a shame for this county.


If you can’t take the heat, stop playing with fire, Mr. Hill. (Apologies to Harry Truman)


That was great, gave me a good chuckle, thanks.


SAY WHAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Publishing the salaries of government workers, whether they’re part of a fixed narrative or not, is neither fair nor honorable,”

The salaries of government workers comes from tax payer money and publishing their salaries is our G*D DAMN RIGHT!

And in the state of California it is REQUIRED BY LAW!

A recent story in CCN states there is a $5,000.00 fine (more tax payer money) for failing to do so!




My God. Who supplies Adam Hill with shovels?

That guy can dig himself a hole faster than any backhoe.


Adam Hill has become a huge liability for SLO County. We need some real leadership from elected officials. He’s simply a bully.


We would actually have to start electing “leaders” to get one, though…
