Jan Marx’s gesture, turning over her mayor jacket, isnt completely genuine as she clearly decided to keep the matching tiara…

Hopefully Mayor Harmon will lead the council in 1) ousting Lichtig and 2) repealing the rental inspection policy.

Adios Jan Marx. Finally–there will be some honest, ethical leadership in SLO.

Good luck, Mayor Harmon. I heard you call into on Dave’s show on kvec last month (re. robocalls)

and I was impressed.

I’m not a fan of many of Mayor Harmon’s political positions, but I have absolutely no doubt that she is a woman of character and will act in a way that she honestly believes is in the best interest of the City of San Luis. We needed new blood and congratulations to the new Mayor.
