A Life in Public Service

Bruce Porter is the supervisor we need in the 3rd District. He has dedicated his life to public service by spending 25 years in the U.S. Army after graduating from West Point. Upon retirement he has been involved in various Santa Ynez Valley community activities. One area where he plans to make a difference is public safety by increasing the efficiency and strength of law enforcement agencies. That is why he has received endorsements from the Sheriffs Association and the District Attorney Association.
