With less than a week until the June 5 primary election, candidates for local races are busy making their final pitches to voters. In San Luis Obispo County, two of the county board of supervisors are up for reelection and being challenged for their jobs.
Earlier this month, we aired interviews with Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding, who are vying for the District 4 seat. KCBX News also spoke with the three candidates for District 2; incumbent Bruce Gibson and challengers Patrick Sparks and Jeff Eckles. These interviews aired on the May 30, 2018 edition of KCBX's Issues & Ideas.
We'll start with Bruce Gibson, speaking in the KCBX studio with Greta Mart.
KCBX News also spoke to Gibson's challengers. Here is a portion of our interview with attorney and real estate broker, Patrick Sparks. The first questions was: why do you want the job?
We wrap up this segment with a portion of an interview with the other challenger to Gibson for the District 2 seat - Jeff Eckles.
