Partisan politics have infected this county


America's toughest family court judge, Judge Judy, wrote a book, Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining.

What unmitigated chutzpah Andrea Seastrand has to have in order to write that county 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill "became an embarrassment to our community" (SLO Tribune, Jan. 19) when a vulgarian inhabits the White House, and there's not been a word of condemnation, especially on programs and policies that impact SLO County such as offshore drilling.

No doubt 1st District Supervisor John Peschong is a skilled political flack for oil interests and he cobbled together a cohort of acolytes to recount the talking points of the conservative (less government, fewer regulations, and property rights before human rights) crowd, most of whom were from outside of Hill's district.

We can understand the lockstep diatribe against Hill as Seastrand is cut from the same cloth as the conservative right-wing cabal on the Board of supervisors.

But don't pee on our leg and tell us it's raining when she champions one of their own to lead the SLO supervisors.

It's time to break the political trifecta that runs the board. It's time to elect Jimmy Paulding for supervisor for the 4th District. It's time to take the partisan out of politics.
