Former SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon

San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon posted multiple rants on Instagram Tuesday evening announcing she would be quitting five days early and calling criticism of her leadership “crap.”

Amid allegations she took gifts from marijuana businessman Helios Dayspring, Harmon announced in late August her plan to resign on Sept 26, in order to take a job with a nonprofit. Then yesterday, she announced it would be her last day as mayor.

“Everyone wants to feel that dopamine hit of shitting on other people,” Harmon said in an Instagram video. “I am sharing this tonight because I am going to block y’all tomorrow, and you deserve it, and I cannot wait.”

Harmon made three videos before Tuesday night’s SLO City Council meeting, with wardrobe changes in each, though her earrings remained the same.

In several posts, Harmon calls out two people who made sexist comments about her a few years ago.

“One last thing before I go, or actually before you go trolls, what has been happening on this page is completely unacceptable,” Harmon says in another video she posted Tuesday. “It is very important that we create healthy boundaries for ourselves, which I am very, very looking forward to doing at 12:01 a.m tomorrow morning.”

Harmon began blocking some members of the media from seeing her HeidiisMighty Instagram page Tuesday morning, and also deleting critical comments.

After starting the SLO City Council meeting, Harmon said she wanted to lead the Pledge of Allegiance after learning it was written by a socialist. She then change the words, taking out “under God” and inserting “under it all,” while mispronouncing other words.

Don’t forget to give your new address to the FBI just in case…

Wow, it sure is nice seeing Team Adam Hill dissipate.

“Everyone wants to feel that dopamine hit of shitting on other people,”? Wow, what an angry little girl. Maybe get some counseling for your unresolved perceived childhood persecutions.

Personally I like the Dopamine hit I get from behaving professionally, accepting the truth, and doing the right thing.

Since “under God” was an addition to the original pledge, I see nothing wrong there: It was an establishment of religion. As for mispronunciation, that’s shocking.

Extremely immature. No dignity. Good riddance.

If anyone seems to derive joy from angering other people its her and folks like her…

Rude to the end. This should be lesson number one in why it’s unwise to entrust untested individuals with positions of elected leadership. For HH being mayor was an idea, an ideological abstraction, not recognition it’s a position requiring impartial, open, humane leadership, and kindness and respect for all — qualities of temperament, it turned out, she lacks.


Myself

Well shes right about one thing, her leadership is crap.

She acts like a little child with her rants, what does she expect in todays world.

As Jerry Reed would have said, Good ByeTurkey.

So long idiot nobody will miss you, you are a disgrace to the office and the people you were supposed to represent.
