Mayor Bob Lingl and challenger John Linn are facing off for the Lompoc Mayoral spot once again.
Mayor Lingl is campaigning to get re-elected. In a prior interview he says he’s asking the residents of Lompoc to look at what he has done for the past two years in office and have confidence he will continue to move the city foward.
Two years ago, Mayor Lingl defeated Linn with a lead of more than 58% with about 3,400 votes. Linn came in with over 40% of the votes.
Linn is no stranger to the job. He was first elected in 2010 for a two year term and then again in 2012.
He says during his campaign he has focused on ways he can move the city forward and create more jobs and build more homes.
Lingl says housing development is also something he is focused on. He says he asked the county to re-open negotiations about annexing land north of the town and was successful. He says over 40 homes will be built within the next year to two years.
