Vox Populi

While I have been encouraged to put my name into the Santa Barbara City Council for consideration for the seat vacated by Das Williams, I believe in democracy and the voters have already spoken on who deserves this seat. In the last City Council election, the first runner up for the next vacant seat was Dianne Channing, followed closely by David Pritchett. They both are also close to Das when it comes to policy and priorities so I will, in the interest of real democracy and the representation of the will of the people, withhold my name in favor of Dianne or David.

Best wishes,
