San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Debbie Arnold launched her 2020 re-election campaign with considerable backing from North County neighbors, raising a total of more than $128,000 in the first half of 2019.

The figure is a record-breaking amount for a six-month period for any candidate seeking to represent the North County Supervisorial district.

“I have no greater support than that of my neighbors,” Arnold said. “They know that every morning I wake up ready to fight for them and deliver real results on the Board of Supervisors. More importantly, they know that I work for them, not special interests.” 

Arnold, who was first elected to the 5th Supervisorial District in 2012, received 98 percent of her contributions from San Luis Obispo and its neighboring coastal counties, the highest of any candidate in District 5.

Arnold, a rancher and pre-K educator by trade, has fought to protect property rights, craft sustainable and responsible water policy, and develop solutions to San Luis Obispo’s homelessness crisis on the Board of Supervisors.


The 5th Supervisorial District includes the communities Atascadero, Santa Margarita, California Valley, Creston, Garden Farms, Pozo, and portions of Templeton, Cal Poly, and San Luis Obispo.

The primary election is March 3, 2020. Learn more about Debbie at
