What a plot! And it’s all true.

Debbie Peterson was urged by friends and neighbors to run for City Council and later for Mayor in Grover Beach, CA. Grover Beach would appear to be a sleepy coastal town. But as Debbie got involved and invoked some common sense (not to mention a forensic audit) it became clear that corruption was rampant.

Debbie’s curiosity sent her down a rabbit hole of kickbacks, lies and outright larceny. Throw in some drugs, an FBI raid and a local history of criminality, suicide, and you have the story of this small town.

Debbie’s book, The Happiest Corruption: Sleaze, Lies, & Suicide in a California Beach Town is available on Amazon.
