Deeply Dedicated

Residents who care about protecting their neighborhood and the fabric of their community should vote for Joan Hartmann for 3rd District Supervisor. Joan has proven to be deeply dedicated to protecting the stability of our communities, encouraging a bustling economy without destroying the core values of what makes a community great — its residents.

I have known her to be thoughtful as she delves into the issues. She has extensive knowledge of county Land Use laws and tries to work collaboratively without sacrificing her values of integrity or basic humanity. She then stands firm on what is best for preserving what is special about Santa Barbara County.

Joan speaks for the future of all of us who don’t want the character of our neighborhoods changed by worshiping the all mighty dollar as the opposition candidate does. Vote for Joan Hartmann.
