Farr actually strikes me as being the level headed grownup on the Board. The wouldn't want to loose her to a man who will not even admit he lost.
On Pappas Raises More Cash Than Farr

It costs something to keep Santa Barbara special. I'm willing to pay a little more. But If I'm going to do that then City employees can too. And what they are doing will help save their pension system. Not to mention If Daraka and Lanny are both against it there must be something to consider.

Isn't it the County that can declare a building uninhabitable? Especially for unincorporated areas...

If I could spend 75k to save a million dollar investment I would do it. And then there's the matter of the people who have been using that shelter. Where are the homeless in Lompoc going to go? That's a large shelter. That's a lot of people. This is going to impact all of us. From the people who feel bad about homeless out on the street in the winter to the people who don't want to see more homeless in their town. And all the people who can understand both points of view.

Even with the increase in sales tax we would pay less than a lot of other beach towns. If we want to have a nice town we need to pay for it. http://investinsantabarbara2012.com

So they agree to agree. And all the comments are negative? What gives?

hank writes a homeless person can be someone with "mental issues or substance (alcohol or drug) abuse." However, when a person has mental health or substance abuse issue they can be "confrontational, aggressive & in many cases violent" (your description of a bum). They can also refuse shelter and other services because of their mental health or substance abuse issues. So there we are. I still do not think you can easily define human beings in to these two groups. By the way, I do not identify as a progressive or a conservative. More of an observer. I would just expect some of the people on this thread to be a little more upset about the destruction of private property by government officials run amuck (if that is what happened).

I would like to see hank and Validated decide who is "homeless" and who is a "bum." I have seen a lot of human tragedy in this town and others. And it is not as simple as you make it out.
I would think the destruction of private property would get you conservatives going...where is the consistency?

I don't think the theme of this eleciton is bulbouts. However, I would like this election to be about the environment. Environmental activism and action is one of the reasons I love Santa Barbara. I am voting for Iya Falcone, Deborah Schwartz and Cathy Murillo who were all endorsed by the Sierra Club and would steer Santa Barbara in the right direction. I certainly won't be voting for any of the incumbents. No matter how "green" they may claim to be. I follow their votes and there is a reason the Sierra Club passed them over.

I doubt Sheriff Brown wants to be in the "mental health business." That's just another thing the State (under Reagan) dumped on Counties. Counties can complain. And end up with a lot of locos on the streets (like Santa Barbara County). Or they can do something about it. At least we are starting to talk about what we are going to do. And programs that reduce recidivism can work. Sheriff Brown has some success to point to.
