Go Gray all the wayLompoc
George and Sylvia King
Supervisor Gray has been an exceptional supervisor for the county’s 4th District. She has been responsive to our needs and requests. She is accessible, and you can depend on her following through with your request for any particular issue or problem. An example: When it was proposed to close the County Clerk’s Office in Lompoc, Supervisor Gray got right on the problem and within a few days, the decision to close that office was changed.
Her male opponent is a likable person, but our concern is that he lacks the experience needed to build a consensus with the other supervisors to make sorely needed changes. We understand that one of his concerns is the county’s pension system, but when asked what might be done at one of the forums, he deferred to Supervisor Gray to answer the question. We were disappointed with the negativity of his recent mailing that included some misleading statements about Joni Gray. An excellent editorial was written in our local newspaper condemning his mailing. We think that we would all be better served if Mr. Adams would work with Joni to make some of these changes, like streamlining regulations and making our county more business and energy friendly.
With today’s financial problems and downturn in the economy, we need experienced leaders like Supervisor Gray, who is well respected by elected leaders from Santa Maria, Lompoc, Orcutt, Sacramento, and Washington, D.C. Because of her experience, our communities are able to benefit from her ability to work with these leaders.
Please join us in re-electing Joni Gray for 4th District supervisor on Nov. 6.
