County Assessor Tom Bordonaro endorses Supervisor Debbie Arnold
Bordonaro was first elected to the California State Assembly in 1994, serving for four years. He is a former chairman of the San Luis Obispo County Republican Central Committee and previously served as president to the Central Coast Taxpayers Association.
“Debbie’s passion for this community and desire to see our residents and region succeed have been evident during her time on the board,” said Bordonaro. “She doesn’t make decisions based on popularity or partisanship, she makes the right decisions based on her experience and the wellbeing of her constituents.”
Arnold has called the Central Coast home for over four decades. Before serving on the county board, she spent nearly twenty years as the owner and operator of Small Wonders Preschool in Atascadero. She also spent time mentoring the region’s youth as a volunteer for various sports teams and the local 4-H.
Arnold lives in San Luis Obispo County with her husband, Steve. They are the owners of a ranching and farming business, and grandparents of four.
She is currently facing one challenger for the seat, Eric Michielssen, a Pozo farmer. The Fifth District includes the communities of Atascadero, Cal Poly (portion), California Valley, Creston, Garden Farms, Pozo, San Luis Obispo (portion), Templeton (portion), and Santa Margarita.
