Goleta has had no ordinances in place for the past 5 years after screwing up and leaving the tobacco retail licensing and second-hand smoke details out of ordinances it put in place after operating under county ordinances for several years.
These are about protecting others from second hand smoke and having penalties in place for merchants who sell tobacco products to minors.
County Health does an excellent job, with a tiny staff, of educating about and enforcing reasonable laws protecting the public.

It comes down to: Follow The Money.
Roger has Big Energy money, Big Developer money, Big Chumash money and so on.
Too much union money isn't wonderful, but Janet is much more interested in her constituents than Roger. He's interested in them for their votes, but has a much more narrow background and scope of interest than Janet. He's also got a snide, grumpy side to him.
Janet is definitely a better choice.

On County 2nd District Supervisor favorite?

The sources of Roger's major campaign donations are important reasons to vote for Janet. If you'd like more development, a weak attitude toward oil and other energy interests and bowing to Chumash demands, Roger's your guy.
The Revenue Neutrality Agreement, with money going from Goleta to the county, was approved by voters as part of cityhood. Aceves and Farr sound like whiners where that's concerned.
Janet does do her homework. And yes, she appeared to more than waffle on Goleta Beach. Not good. But she seems to have figured out how much sustaining it means to her constituents.
Janet should be re-elected.

Eliason IS a class act and a terrific person, not to mention an outstanding photographer! Whoever he works for in the future will be very fortunate. I suspect his psyche is relieved, even though it's never easy to be on a job search.
Wenders, the Nip, Katich and others pretending to know journalism and journalistic ethics are Ignorant, Mean, Sad and Sick. Really, words are inadequate...

Go Lancers is right!!
Unhappy neighbors - perhaps it wasn't so wise to buy a home in proximity to a school. Thought about moving?

Janet's been a pretty decent supervisor for the 2nd District. I hope she stays IF she figures out we need to keep Goleta Beach as is and not hand it off to extremists.
Maybe Roger's candidacy will push her in the right direction re Goleta Beach.

Face it Pappas: You Lost.

Face it Crawford-Hall: Your money couldn't buy the seat for your hand-picked lackey. You should really pay this judgment since you bankrolled everything else for Pappas.

How could he be so stupid?
