David Landecker, Yes!

As past president of the Environmental Defense Center (EDC) from 2008 through 2011, I worked very closely with David Landecker (then EDC’s executive director). I enthusiastically join with The Santa Barbara Independent in endorsing David’s candidacy for Santa Barbara City Council.

David was skillful in his leadership of EDC, as he was leading the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics, his own company, the Citizens Planning Association, and other local nonprofits. He excels at organizational and fiscal management. David assures that every participant understands the challenges and opportunities, and he develops teamwork and coordination to set and meet goals. His detailed attention to managing the budget successfully steered EDC through difficult financial times. I am confident his business sense, deep caring, and tireless work habits will produce great results for our city.
