SLO County’s latest election results

March 10, 2020

Supervisor Debbie Arnold


Both San Luis Obispo County supervisors John Peschong and Debbie Arnold have secured enough votes to win reelection, while the District 3 contest between Supervisor Adam Hill and Stacy Korsgaden remains too close to call.

On Monday, the Clerk Recorders Office released its latest tally. In District 1, Peschong leads challenger Stephanie Shakofsky 66 percent to 34 percent. With only 616 ballots left to count, Peschong is ahead by 5,836 votes.

In District 5, Arnold tops her challenger Ellen Beraud 54 percent to 46 percent. While there are 1,427 ballots left to count, Arnold leads by 1,442 votes.

In District 3, Hill leads Korsgaden 51 percent to 49 percent, or by 528 votes. There are currently 817 uncounted ballots.

On election night, Korsgaden topped Hill by 304 votes, 51.01 percent to 48.78 percent. It appears Hill benefited from Democratic voters turning in their ballots on Election Day, potentially due to the presidential primary.

With poll voting and late mail-in ballots consistently favoring Hill, it is likely he will win reelection.


Hurray for John and Debbie! To Stacy, a bit of hope remains, but she sure gave it a good run and scared him into his cowardly hiding. But if the 3rd district puts Adam– the obscene “Bridge Troll”- back on the Board, it will be interesting to see how the rest of the Board will deal with disciplining Adam over his past emails in the coming weeks. He at least deserves to be stripped of his position as Chair of the Board. How can this Board not do that in the face of Hill’s disgusting offenses?

One thing for certain is that a Joanie come lately kicked a field goal over the Hill with the cheers from the punctual voters.


“too” close to call.
