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.”

I just looked at the facebook page. The first thing I noticed is that Dee Torres and Maria Kelly gave it a thumbs up.. LOL, Too funny and of course the highlight is a video of someone in public comment (referred to as a bully) at a BOS meeting referring to Gibsons mistress as a prostitute or whore.


All the high profile public mistresses and lechers now have a place to complain about the public’s opinion of them. LMAOROF.

“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.”


It looks like Adam Hill is threatening those who came forward and even calling them liars. Likewise, he is threatening those who currently have jobs and have spoke off the record or are planning to speak up. It’s obvious that there would be retaliation if their names were revealed. I should think that statements like this from an elected member of the BOS would be considered border line illegal intimidation tactics.


Well Mr LoverBoy, as an elected official of the BOS, you’re a disappointment and a big embarrassment.


(No doubt Hill thinks I’m talking about Gibson in that last line, how sick is this getting? )


DemandTransparency

OMG! There needs to be an OCSDSense, where the bright light of transparency shines down on them and forces truth and facts . . . oh wait . . . there was one but somebody got their little feelings hurt and got the page shut down.


racket

That’s too funny that “SLOSENSE” is unwilling to tell you who they are, but make you register who YOU are before you can access their site.


Unless funded by the Dem central committee, I’m guessing they’ll be out of business by the end of Adam’s next pay period.

Cambria provides all salaries with benefits. Why is slo sense hiding who the authors are? they moderate comments on facebook and removed comments by jan marx and adam hill .Hill thanked tom and ? for the site. shirley bianchi on her blog.said the site owner is a trusted slo journalist.I think some of fhe slo sense ideas could be good since i support smart growth and am anti tea party also left of right.Adam is ok , I’m used fo his style of humor.But if slo sense who is asking money for the site wants my money they better step out of the shadows..

Just about every city, county and state job salary can be found by looking on its website. Voyeurism…..Hill says. Its called transparency in government Konig Hill, something you know nothing about.
