The writer has done a very laudable job in sifting through the evidence presented as to the criminality of Mr. Lack. David Lack thought his elevated position in the community would shield him from suspicion. . . that his past connections with the political elite would carry the day and insulate him from close scrutiny. He was wrong, catastrophically wrong for him. To raise the hue and cry and bring corruption into the light, you need only one voice in the darkness. . . a persistent and unyielding voice. . .we'll see who's voice that turns out to be and how many dominoes fall before it's over.

Politics aside, the fraud and deception by Mr. Lack were paramount in the decision to prosecute. He thought no one would be watching the mundane aspects of his deceit such as licensing, workman's comp insurance and general liability insurance. Without a contractors license these critical coverages are not in place. If there is an injury or death on the project the full liability of the loss falls on the property owner. . .not a fair deal for the homeowner if he must bear the burden of, say, a million dollar payout on a death or injury.This also a main reason your Doctor, Dentist, CPA, Stock Broker etc. are licensed. . .in case of a mistake, death or injury.

A year ago I bumped into a guy carrying a poster out of the Costco in Goleta. It turned out to be Richard Sanford, who had been doing a public relations gig for his wines inside the store. Richard took about ten minutes to talk with me (a stranger) about his wines and the attributes of the Santa Ynez Valley where I had just moved. This article reinforces what I learned about him that day. He is an open, self-effacing and enthusiastic purveyor of his excellent wines no matter where he is. Thanks for this insightful, enlightening article.
