3rd District Choice

We should be mindful that our decision to vote for a candidate should not be based solely on current issues but also on their skill and character. That is not to say our current issues are unimportant, because they are very important. However, over time issues will change, and it is then that a candidate’s ability to adapt to a changing environment becomes essential. This is where the value of personal character and talent become important; that is why I support Joan Hartmann.

I first met Joan after purchasing and operating a retail business in Buellton in 2007. Joan has always made it a point to support local businesses such as mine, especially here in Buellton where she lives. Over the years since, I have had the opportunity to come to know Joan as an individual that is dedicated to improving our community.

The 3rd District being the largest and most diverse district demands a hard-working, multi-talented supervisor. It is without hesitation that I can say Joan Hartmann is dedicated, honest, and extremely fair. Combining her values and character, along with her proven commitment to a history of public service, I am proud to support Joan for Santa Barbara 3rd District Supervisor.
