Thoughtful Analysis Preferred

Our Board of Supervisors seems to be swayed by emotion, not thoughtful analysis. Allowing Measure P on the ballot because folks signed petitions based on emotional tag words and a lack of science is how politics are unfortunately played out in 2014. Supervisors, put away your heart strings and focus on what havoc your political actions bestow upon the electorate. Represent the people of Santa Barbara County, not your personal feelings. Wasting time and money by allowing an expensive and questionable ballot measure that jeopardizes jobs and private property plus allows lawsuits is not commendable.
