Public lashes out at Supervisor Adam Hill, no chairmanship

Public speakers, 31 in all, asked the board to deny Hill the chair position because of his issues with civility. The speakers ripped Hill for his attacks and threats directed at county resident and public officials with whom he disagrees.

Last week, Hill mounted a social media attack on the three-member board majority. He also threatened to publicly embarrass Supervisor Lynn Compton if he was not promoted to the chairmanship.

However, prior to public comment, Hill said that he was not going to fight for himself anymore.

“I certainly don’t want to fight for me or for any of the petty stuff like chair rotation or committee assignments,” Hill said.

Several members of the public also lashed out at Supervisor Bruce Gibson for enabling and supporting Hill’s bad behavior.

Gibson responded to the criticism by blaming the Coalition of Labor Agriculture and Business for mobilizing the chorus while failing to address the public’s concerns.

Following a brief discussion, the board voted 3-2 to elect Peschong as chair and Supervisor Debbie Arnold as vice chair.

    In the photo, Hill and Peschong should trade places, so it’s the three on the right, at right in the photo and the two lefties on the left side.
    Word is Jeff Eckles is going to challenge Gibson in June. Supposed to make an announcement on Friday the 19th.

    It was very apparent that Adam Hill really had no interest in the chairmanship of the board of supervisors by his antics, that said antics were just a ploy by Hill to show his voter base and the donors to his campaign what a maligned and picked on person he is on the B.O.S.
    I congratulate the board for ignoring him and choosing Mr. Peschong as the board chair.
    Respect to those who deserve it!

    One more year of this 3-2 BS! I personally can not wait to see it 2-3 with Jimmy Paulding taking Lynn’s seat! Let’s see how the other 2 react to turn around…..I do hope it is not as crappy as this board makes it. Talk about partisan politics, nothing gets done for the community at large. It’s all about the trumpsters this year again.

    I’m impressed that the public stood up, but it figures that gibson would blame someone else for his problems, he needs to go this next election also.

    Am I the only person that notices Adam Hill looks a lot like Harvey Weinstein in this picture?
