It makes sense to anticipate the 101 widening by providing for these people trying to get to work.

Concur with bookman: there is too much vituperation connected with whom occupies the office rather than the office and the important work Supervisors do. Perhaps the salaries should be pegged to some other salary, Superior Court Judges or an average of County Department Heads, for example, and allowed to rise with the cost of living. Valuable time is wasted at present.

It's important to discover where the trucks that distribute water, are getting that water. Our entire State is in drought so its foolhardy to purchase water anywhere to provide green lawns, irrespective of how rich one is.

Santa Barbara has been blessed with their last 4 Administrators. Running a City isn't for the faint of heart, and Jim Armstrong has done a stellar job of balancing the various interests and guiding the ship without upsetting the tender dynamics of an elected policy-making Council. He surrounded himself with competent department heads, promoted from within, allowed employees to innovate, and appointed women to important jobs. Jim is a great listener, a great leader who can see the world as it is. His salary is commensurate with his responsibilities and a reminder of the time value of money equation.
Hiring Jim was one of the best things our Council ever did, and personally, I'm sorry to see the end of the Armstrong Era. Paul Casey will continue the tradition. DBS
