Credible Sources

I attended the Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors meeting last week to support the Historic Landmark designation and the future development of the Inn at Mattie’s. The reporting by the Santa Barbara News-Press was a complete distortion and inaccurate account of the meeting. I sent a letter to them to help clear up the facts, but did not even received an acknowledgment of receipt. As of now I will learn of news of Santa Barbara solely from the Independent.
