Experience and Integrity

Voting is important. It allows us to fulfill our responsibility for living in a democracy. Who we vote for is a matter of personal freedom, and I believe it should not be taken lightly.

Here in Santa Barbara County’s 3rd District, we have an important choice to make regarding who will represent us on the Board of Supervisors. I believe that experience as well as integrity is key.

Joan Hartmann has the character, temperament, skill sets, and hard-working ethics to get the job done exceptionally well. She also brings practical, proven experience preventing urban sprawl and working toward water and energy sustainability that will serve not only 3rd District needs but all of Santa Barbara County.
