ATASCADERO — The Atascadero Chamber of Commerce will host an in-person candidates forum for the four individuals vying for the seat of Supervisor for San Luis Obispo County’s realigned District 2. The candidates are incumbent Bruce Gibson, Bruce Jones, Geoff Auslen, and John Whitworth. The forum will take place on Thursday, April 28 at the Atascadero High School gym.
