This week, county supervisors finally gave the new county government building a name. They named it after former supervisor and assemblyman Katcho Achadjian.
Kathco was an Armenian immigrant from Lebanon who worked his way through Cuesta and Cal Poly at a gas station in San Luis Obispo county. He got a degree in business administration from Cal Poly. After graduation he ended up buying the station, and several others in the county.
He served as a county supervisor and in 2010 was elected to the state assembly.
Although he was a republican, he voted his conscience at the local and state level.
Members of Katcho’s family attended the supervisors meeting Tuesday for the naming of the county government building after Katcho Achadjian.
