Statement of Endorsement by Eric Meyer, SLO County Planning Commissioner

“I am endorsing Jan Marx for re-election because I  appreciate her strong local and regional leadership and willingness to continue in leading the great city of San Luis Obispo.”                 State Senator Bill Monning

“Since being elected to City Council in 2013, I have enjoyed working with Mayor Jan Marx. She works hard to protect the community, the economy and the environment. I feel strongly that the City needs her experience, knowledge, and expertise to help solve local and regional problems. It is important to the future of the City that she remain on Council. She knows how to get things done and has a solid record of accomplishments. Please join me in support of Jan Marx’s campaign for SLO Mayor.” 

San Luis Obispo City Council Member Carlyn Christianson
