Former SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon

By KAREN VELIE

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.

She should get a job or do a job in Hollywood. It’s all about her kids, that claim, coming from her, is the deification she accuses others of. Truly acting is her talent, environental issues are her foot holes. Keep climbing Heidi, you’ll find others just like you on top with ovaries.

She can quit as soon as she wants, the FBI will take its time.

This is the worst elected person after Hill to ever get elected in the county in the last 20 years.

I would question any nonprofit who would hire someone abruptly leaving their political position amongst suicide scandal and FBI bribery investigations….

Enough with the personal attacks, “Please address the Policies, events and arguments, not the person.” is on every page, your ability to comment depends on your behavior.

This is funny!


Heidi’s “Nixon Moment”


“just think how much you’re going to be missing. You don’t have Nixon to kick around anymore. Because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference.”

this reads like she was channeling Elton John:


“and I’m gonna be high, as a kite by then”

I am so glad Cal Coast is here. It gives angry white people a place to digress, to scream, yell and call others names. Really gives everyone a chance to get it off their chest, all the bitter, ignorant, racist things that you just can’t say out in public or face to face with another person. No go back to yelling at the kids to get off your grass, calling long haired kids communist and gay people fags. Boy it must feel good to let loose of all that hate.

Good riddance
