I have known Carlyn Christianson for 13 years. We met when she was elected to the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce Board, and I was the Chamber’s government affairs director. I worked with Carlyn when she served as chair of the chamber’s Housing Task Force. I attended numerous SLO City Planning Commission meetings when Carlyn was a member and chair of the commission. With decades of experience in planning, community service, and business administration, she does not oversimplify the elements that go into making the city a great place to live and do business.
Carlyn is a leader with a clear understanding of the needs of our community as well as applied knowledge of the details of our general plan. Her unique experience particular to the issues that the city of San Luis Obispo faces today combine to make her the best candidate for the SLO City Council. Carlyn has the skills and commitment to ensure that careful planning and stewardship will lead to long-term success for SLO. The City Council, as it updates the Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE), needs her experience and vision now. Please vote for Carlyn Christianson.
