New Times: Supervisor candidates Peschong and Shakofsky spar over radio ads
–The battle for San Luis Obispo County District 1 supervisor is already off to a hot start, according to a report by the New Times.
Local radio ads paid for by incumbent Supervisor John Peschong paint his new opponent, Stephanie Shakofsky, as a “San Francisco liberal” attempting “a left-wing takeover” of the Board of Supervisors, according to a Dec. 9 summary of the ad in The Tribune.
The ads caused a stir in North County, as Shakofsky had yet to formally announce her candidacy. Shakofsky is a Paso Robles vineyard owner who recently moved to SLO County from the Bay Area. A former director of the Oakland-based Center for Creative Land Recycling, Shakofsky is a leading critic of the incoming cannabis industry in SLO County, according to the New Times.
The First District includes the City of Paso Robles as well as the communities of Templeton, Adelaida, Roblar, Heritage Ranch, San Miguel, Shandon, Oak Shores, Cholame and Whitley Gardens.
