Lynn Compton wins supervisor seat

November 5, 2014

lynn comptonLynn Compton defeated incumbent San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Caren Ray on Tuesday night garnering conservatives’ control of the board.

With all precincts reporting, Compton received 53.5 percent of the vote leaving Ray with 46.3 percent. A group of approximately 100 people cheered Compton’s win at her campaign headquarters in Arroyo Grande.

Gov. Jerry Brown appointed Ray to serve out the term of Supervisor Paul Teixeira who died last year. Supervisor Adam Hill and Rep. Lois Capps lobbied the governor to appoint a Ray, a Democrat, to represent District 4, which swings Republican.

Compton’s win ends a contentious race with multiple accounts of sign theft, vandalism and mudslinging.
