“San Luis Obispo County is at a crossroads,” said Auslen. “I’m running for Supervisor to ensure that our county goes down the right path. As a local small business owner, I am committed to making San Luis Obispo County the best place in California to live, work and raise a family.”

Geoff Auslen is a long-time local business owner, community leader, husband and foster parent. In addition to running his small businesses, Auslen has served on the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, as an officer of the Atascadero Elks Club, and as an active member of the Atascadero Kiwanis Club.

However, Auslen’s most rewarding endeavor has been getting Atascadero’s first inclusive children’s playground built. After six years, Auslen and his team of volunteers financed and built the Joy Playground, an inclusive playground where all children – regardless of their disability—can safely play outdoors. As a result, the United Cerebral Palsy of San Luis Obispo awarded Auslen with Citizen of the Year in 2021.

Auslen and his wife, Kate, live in Atascadero with their two rescued German Shepherds, Nellie and Nala.

San Luis Obispo County’s new Second Supervisorial District includes the communities of San Miguel, San Simeon, Cambria, Cayucos, Lake Nacimiento, West Templeton, West Paso Robles, Harmony, and the City of Atascadero.
