Passion and Compassion

Who are you going to vote for as county supervisor? Who can lead us through these times of water, budget, and development woes?

We are fortunate to have Joan Hartmann seeking the 3rd Supervisorial District office. Given her diverse background in the law, community development, child protection, environmental management, and land use planning, Joan is uniquely qualified to represent us in the Board of Supervisors.

I worked with Joan for economic, social, and environmental sustainability in Buellton, and I know she has the passion, compassion, intelligence, and experience to move our county forward to a prosperous and healthy future. Please vote for Joan in November.
