Mayor Marx lacks ethics
October 8, 2016
OPINION by KEVIN RICE
IntegritySLO is still awaiting the so-called returned contribution from San Luis Obispo Mayor candidate Heidi Harmon. IntegritySLO has not heard a word from Harmon or received any refund.
A lot of “facts” are being reported without any facts or evidence existing.
Regardless, Heidi isn’t Jan, and IntegritySLO is advocating for her whether she likes it or not. Heidi cannot win against an entrenched and dishonest mayor without a broad spectrum of support.
IntegritySLO advocates for honest and ethical candidates, which includes Democrats, Republicans, and independents, and for issues beneficial to public policy. IntegritySLO paid for and hosted the county’s only unmoderated and open candidate forum early this year, giving the electorate the only open and unfiltered access to third district supervisor candidates this election.
Mayor Jan Marx debased herself and her office in intentionally propagating manufactured and unquestionable lies which are readily controverted by documented facts and/or completely without substance. Our daily print media coordinated in this scheme (and many others) and is in the bag with the mayor and other corrupted politicians and power players, and does not serve the public interest.
Mayor Marx’ lack of ethics and judgment are precisely why IntegritySLO endorses Heidi Harmon, an honest candidate, in this election. IntegritySLO regrets that mayor Marx has intimidated and bamboozled Harmon, who has out raised Marx via small donations. Marx is vituperative, vicious, and will do anything to win and is clearly worried and should be.
Integrity SLO is a political committee run by San Luis Obispo activist Kevin Rice,
