  • "No work record, no accomplishments, no community involvement. He sounds like someone who feels "entitled". This guy has absolutely no record nor reason to run for an important job like county supervisor. He should get an entry level job, gain some experience and become at least a little involved in one or several of the very fine service organizations that do good for the community. After years of proving himself, maybe he could consider a run at public office. Also, I sincerely hope Bruce does the right thing and decide that it is time to retire. If he retires before the election he can leave with his head held high, if he waits to be defeated at the polls, he will leave office as a looser."

  • "I wonder what the insurance company will have to say about this loss? They are not emotional in their decision making, they use the agreed to rules and actuaries to determine loss. If you don't like their conclusion, "far out" will likely be the wrong response."

  • "Spray painting boxcars is dumb, but how can adding some paint to a box car cost $10000? I travel by train a lot, it is *very* rare to see a boxcar which is not heavily tagged. Union Pacific will not re-paint the car, they never do. Most likely, it's just another insurance claim for them. They should give this guy a cut of it."

  • "Also DO NOT go to the rally to "see what's happening". You are not helping the authorities. Violent folks in the front will file to the sides, and then rejoin the "rally" at the rear, pushing bystanders to the front."

  • "Not sure having Alan Settle supporting you is a good thing. Mr. Settle lied to the people saying he lived in SLO in a rental with several young student type people instead of his mansion down south just so he could stay on the city council. In the future you may want to pick people with higher moral standards and people more honest than Mr. Settle."

  • "When I was a teenager, I worked for a stone mason. Most of our work is still there. When I visit my home town, I often drive around with pride thinking "I helped build that". These punks think of their graffiti in the same light. Their mark to be seen. Misguided and idiotic. Build that wall!"

  • "Does this make the issue of admission and treatment one of inadequate staffing at the inpatient level. They have County General Hospital's building they could expand into. It is a challenge in this county finding in patient drug and alcohol treatment. Perhaps they could partner up with their only resource for residential treatment, The Salvation Army, and use that building to house a program. Use the balance of the rooms to widen mental health's inpatient treatment . We are punishing people by sending them to jail for psychiatric illness. Our county web page states :" The Behavioral Health Department is part of the Health Agency and works in collaboration with the community to provide services necessary to improve and maintain the health and safety of individuals and families affected by mental illness and/or substance abuse. Services are designed to assist in the recovery process to achieve the highest quality of life by providing culturally competent, strength based and client and family centered strategies utilizing best practices." collaboration with the community is county jail? strength based = restraints? Is there no one minding the mental health care in our county?"

  • "How twisty and turny this goofball types his blather. It's downright trumpean the way he pretends to excoriate the evildoers then turns the issue around to every illogical/unethical thing COLAB stands for. I personally know of the illogical bent of these people. It is why they have, for years, been unable to establish themselves anywhere."

  • "Just what the County needs....another Liberal voice to play ball with Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson. I doubt the Voters are that crazy....but then again...they did vote in Legalized Pot and just might need it to survive in this County if Adam and Bruce are in the Majority!"

  • "Why? This one seems to have no problem coming to conclusions that help the county. How in the world are you going to find a coroner who can weigh non-existent gall bladders and perform autopsies with .19 BAC? Imagine the trouble that would have come about with an honest Medical Examiner! Why, then perhaps blame could have been placed on the people who worked at the jail for Andrew Holland's death! No...it's best to keep an alcoholic liar on staff. He's reliable when it comes to getting the information on paper that best helps the county."

  • "There is a petition on We the people requesting that Antifa be listed as a domestic terrorist group. While I have no faith in these petitions and the way they were treated during the last administration it may be worth a shot.It has exceeded to amount of signatures required but what can it hurt."
