The incumbent District 3 San Luis Obispo County supervisor is expected to be a no-show at the year’s first debate between candidates seeking a seat on the board of supervisors. Supervisor Adam Hill says the person sponsoring the debate is excessively partisan and makes personal attacks.

Integrity SLO, a political committee run by San Luis Obispo activist Kevin Rice, is hosting a Lincoln-Douglas-style debate in which there will be no moderator. In its 460 filing, Integrity SLO says it opposes Adam Hill for Supervisor 2012.

The debate is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Avila Beach Community Center.

Each of the three candidates in the District 3 race is invited to participate. The candidates are Hill, San Luis Obispo Councilman Dan Carpenter and former Grover Beach Mayor Debbie Peterson.

Both Carpenter and Peterson are expected to attend the debate.

Hill’s campaign issued a press release to favored media saying the supervisor would not attend. Neither Rice, nor CalCoastNews received the statement.

“While Supervisor Adam Hill enjoys a robust discussion about the issues, the “free for all” format combined with excessive partisanship and personal attacks demonstrated by Mr. Rice in the past aren’t conducive to creating an environment in which a meaningful discussion can be had,” Hill’s campaign stated.

The news release also said Hill’s campaign strives to keep the election focused on issues and accomplishments, not “unsubstantiated smears and gotcha moments rigged by opponents.”

Rice stated Hill has not formally declined to attend the debate.

“A false rumor alleges one candidate has formally declined to appear,” the Integrity SLO website states. “Integrity SLO has received no such communication and is confident all three candidates desire to meet the public.”

Doors will open Thursday at 6:30 p.m. The Avila Beach Community Center is located at 191 San Miguel Street.

A Bullying Chicken:


He could wile away the hours

Conferrin’ with the flowers

Consultin’ with the rain

And his head he’d be scratchin’

While his thoughts were busy hatchin’

If he only had a brain

He’d unravel any riddle

For any individ’le

In trouble or in pain

With the thoughts he’d be thinkin’

He could be another Lincoln

If he only had a brain

Oh, he would tell you why

The ocean’s near the shore

He could think of things he never thunk before

And then he’d sit and think some more

He would not be just a nuffin’

His head all full of stuffin’

His brain feeling no pain

He would dance and be merry

Life would be a ding-a-derry

If he only had a brain

Remember a few days before Christmas in 2012 when Adam Hill addressed the public?

“While I have prided myself on candor, there is a point where that candor becomes an easy justification for behavior that is not acceptable from anyone, be it an elected official or an anonymous commenter.

So I make a whole-hearted and community-wide apology and promise to live up to the moral ideals of a community that rightfully prides itself on friendliness and cooperation…

So much for that.

Broken promise.

Has Adam Hill ever addressed the documents from the Secretary of State proving his business partnership with BP Companies? To the best of my knowledge he just pretends that the Secretary of State “lied.”
