The Tribune | April 24, 2023

The race to represent District 5 on the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors is setting up to be a showdown between two Atascadero City Council members. Atascadero mayor Heather Moreno announced her candidacy on Monday…

“I am running for supervisor to bring experienced, competent leadership to the county and put the needs of our residents first.” Moreno said in a news release.

Moreno was appointed to city council in 2012, and later elected mayor of Atascadero in 2018 — going on to serve three terms. “Under Moreno’s leadership, the city of Atascadero fully funded and staffed its police department, invested in infrastructure repairs and improvements, worked collaboratively with community organizations to help tackle the homelessness crisis and brought new jobs and economic development to the city,” the release said.

Moreno, a certified public accountant and businesswoman, is endorsed by county Supervisor John Peschong, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson, San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow and former Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, according to her release.
