San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Chairman Frank Mecham steps down, offers the board’s leadership to colleague Debbie Arnold, and the vice-chair to new supervisor Lynn Compton.
Mecham’s unexpected move is not appreciated by fellow board members Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson, both of whom deliver angry comments before voting against the motion — which passes 3-2.
