Updating Morro Bay parks commissioner story: clarification
March 22, 2015
In a Feb. 23 story about former Morro Bay parks commissioner Aaron Ochs and a robo-call regarding his online activity, CalCoastNews erred when it wrote that Ochs was considering getting a gun. To clarify Ochs’ statement, he said it was recommended by an unnamed individual that he get a firearm.
Here is what Ochs wrote on social media in January: “It came to my attention that Julie Tacker and Karen Velie made a direct threat of imminent harm to my family.” Someone “recommended that I should purchase a firearm because I was ‘going to be killed.’ “
Following the unsubstantiated claim, Tacker filed a report with the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Department. Tacker told deputies she had no idea what Ochs was talking about and that she feared for her family’s safety. Tacker also informed the sheriff’s department that she believed Ochs was cyber harassing her and that she felt stalked.
“I was starting to fear for my family when Ochs is talking about getting a gun,” Tacker said.
