Goleta has lost so much of it's beauty and good land since the developers took over the city council. Over-development has turned Goleta another concrete mess.

Excellant idea Eckermann. We need to protect ourselves from the NRA and their republican backers who continue to support the right for mentally unstable people to purchase guns. And I'll bet money this kid grew up playing violent video games. American culture has become mentally impaired.

America has a mental health crisis on its hands. Building prisons doesn't protect us from mentally ill behavior. When will politicians wake up and fundamentally restructure public safety spending to address mental health. Access to guns is to easy for mentally ill people as well.

Bill Brown’s new North County jail should be cut.
Roads and parks should be a higher priority than an unnecessary jail.
The voters already said no to the jail once.

The injunction has become political rather than practical.
A couple more "Falling Dawn" operations in North County with FBI involvement would be practical.

We can stop calling it the "Funk Zone" now. All the funk has been wined and dined into the tourist zone.

The Mexican Mafia is a real threat. Santa Maria has been taken over by the Mafia. Santa Maria needs an "operation Falling Dawn" type intervention to clean up that city. The FBI needs to get involved.
Gang injunctions don't address the root of the problem. Prohibition doesn't work in America, never has. Just creates violent crime. Drug and alcohol abuse doesn't change whether or not it's legal or not.

Congrats! The protection of these lands is terrific and so important for a healthy planet that we all share. Thanks.

Too bad your are content to spend the State budget on new unnecessary prisons. Lip service for education is great, but your support for prisons and the bullet train through prime farm-land kind of makes you appear hypocritical. Please set your own priorities instead of just following whatever Jerry Brown wants. You can do it.

That it. I'm voting yes on measure M in hopes that it will financially starve the prison.
Das Williams and Hannah Beth Jackson need to speak up. They appear to be quietly cowering behind their CCPOA campaign cash and have abandoned their social justice platform.
If they want to build something, let them build a mental health facility to further reduce the prison population.
