ARROYO GRANDE, CA – JULY 28, 2021: In a little more than three months of fundraising, Arroyo Grande City Council Member Jimmy Paulding has raised $139,724 in his bid for SLO County’s 4th District supervisor’s seat, according to campaign financial disclosure reports through June 30.
“The broad cross section of South County residents supporting me with their hard-earned money shows that the community is fired up and ready for a change on the Board of Supervisors,” Jimmy said. “This outpouring of support is both humbling and motivating, especially considering that the primary isn’t until June 7 next year. I’m deeply grateful to the people of South County for their support.”
Nearly 450 people contributed to the campaign with donations averaging $260 each. Sixty-five percent of donations were $100 or less. Nearly 80% of contributions were from South County residents, and 98% were from within SLO County.
“These contributions signal that the people of District 4 want a positive, open-minded person representing them and focused on South County issues like water security, roads, homelessness and sky-high housing costs. These South County issues are my focus.”
The Paulding campaign will be hosting Jimmy’s official campaign kickoff event at Arroyo Grande Heritage Square Park on Saturday, July 31 from 2pm to 5pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Jimmy Paulding was born and raised in South County and currently serves on the Arroyo Grande City Council. A Cal Poly graduate with a degree in City and Regional Planning and Juris Doctor of law, Jimmy and his wife Kendra manage a law practice focused on business law and estate planning.
District 4 encompasses the City of Arroyo Grande and the unincorporated communities of Oceano and Nipomo as well as portions of Edna Valley and the region to the east along Highway 166. Redistricting is scheduled to take place later this year, ahead of the next primary election. The election will be held June 7, 2022.
