Embattled SLO Planning Commissioner Steps Down

A San Luis Obispo planning commissioner who came under fire for bigoted comments he made on social media has resigned.

County Supervisor Lynn Compton announced earlier this month that she had accepted the resignation of her planning commissioner Jim Harrison. She is now in search of a replacement.

Harrison’s controversial posts included a meme featuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a Nazi and a post in which he declared that all mosques and Islam should be banned.
