Filing Period Ends for June Primary

Several county officials up for reelection ​— ​most notably 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino and District Attorney Joyce Dudley ​— ​will be unchallenged in the June 3 primary; the filing deadline was 3/7. The 2nd District supervisor race will remain between incumbent Janet Wolf and Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves, and the Sheriff’s contest will pit Bill Brown against challenger Sandra Brown. State Assemblymember Das Williams will face two challengers, and Congressmember Lois Capps will square off against two fellow Democrats, five Republicans, and one decline-to-state.
