Adam Hill lobbies council members

December 19, 2013

During a Grover Beach City Council meeting on Monday night, San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill gave members of the council gold medallions shortly before they made their decision to remove Mayor Debbie Peterson from the county Air Pollution Control District (APCD).

Before the meeting, Hill placed the gifts on each of the council member’s chairs. Then, during public comment, Hill asked council members to call him if they needed financial assistance for Grover Beach events and projects.


The council previously considered booting Peterson from the APCD board in August after she campaigned for a repeal of the APCD dust rule. If implemented, the dust rule would fine the California Department of Parks and Recreation $1,000 a day if it does not reduce the amount of dust blowing onto the Nipomo Mesa.

Hill sets on the APCD board and has chastised Peterson for questioning staff recommendations and reports. San Luis Obispo County Supervisors Hill and Bruce Gibson had previously lobbied the council to remove Peterson from the APCD board, according to other council members.

Two Grover Beach councilmen, Jeff Lee and Glenn Marshall, are employees of the county. Both have stated that they do not have a conflict of interest in the matter.

Oh my, Thank you Kevin Rice, I needed a good laugh!


I have to give a nod to Bill Nicolls, a naive and too sensitive republican who gets played by conniving democrats on the BOS. Thanks Bill! Enjoy your perch on Adam’s lap. Adam, I’ll give you this: you’re entertaining.

GB City council: good luck with your conference center. You are alone now.

Nicolls is “NPP” now. (No Party Preference)

Here’s a photo of Bill with Caren Ray at her developer funded money grab last week (hosted by Adam Hill and mega-bucks Dalidio developer Gary Grossman).


Adam probably promised him that he could stand next to Caren, for the photo only.

For Bill, NPP is Naive Peoples Party.

Where’s his right hand at?

Looks to me like they are all eagerly awaiting their turn; but to do what? Fill her political money buck or ?????


Adam, have you afforded Dee one of these special medallions?


What? 30 pieces of silver not available?

Kevin Rice

Wow, now that is bold. Hill openly lobbies another agency to remove someone from his path or maybe someone who expects accountability. If he gave them medals publicly, my question is what was given behind the scenes. Impeach Hill, Impeach Hill.

Great collector pieces, so far they are only worth one vote.


Are you referring to Hill or the key chains pictured in the article?


Taxpayer money spent for worthless trinkets….what a waste


I think they are campaign swag keychains stuff like this is paid for by the committee to elect him and I suppose they are taxpayers …
