Higginbotham leaves Supervisor race amid alleged bullying
July 24, 2015
Pismo Beach Mayor Shelly Higginbotham announced Friday that she would no longer be a candidate for the San Luis Obispo County District 3 supervisor seat currently held by Adam Hill. Higginbotham said she is stepping down to focus on her family and her job as mayor.
Nevertheless, multiple sources told CalCoastNews Hill and his campaign have made several public records requests for information on the Higginbothams while dispersing negative claims about her family members.
Higginbotham joined San Luis Obispo Councilman Dan Carpenter, former Grover Beach Mayor Debbie Peterson and Hill in a race for the District 3 seat. The district includes Edna Valley, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach and Grover Beach and a portion of San Luis Obispo.
In 2012, the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce named Shelly Higginbotham and her husband Dr. Robert Higginbotham citizens of the year.
