Pappas is obviously delaying filing BK. He will never pay this bill. He is a Skoflaw and in the end will avoid his responsibility with BK. Crawford-Hall has no legal responsibility to pay although morally there is no question she should , and she will disappear from the scene just like her paper.

That's why he calls himself the loneranger. I expect Lieff to get less than 10% of the vote.

I grew up at Hammond's with Margo Godfrey, maybe the all around best women surfer to date. I surfed with Kim Merig most of her career. Lakey is in that level. The problem is Stef Gilmore and Carissa Moore are two of the all time best as well. I expect Lakey to be a contender for years to come.

Always interesting to see who these people are who aspire to local office, who we have never heard of before. Sounds like Lieff is another in the line of goofball, non-serious candidates. She is not raising any money? She does not know what issues she is interested in that are currently before the Board? She is running against one of the most secure local politicians? Salud is supported by the wealthy conservatives and liberals of Montecito, as well as his hispanic constituents. No contest!

$400,000.00 extortion payment to Channelkeeper and their lawyer that comes directly out of your monthly sewer bill. The City Council acknowledging that City staff is not competent to do their jobs without Channelkeeper's oversight? Nothing to be happy about.

First I thought it a surprise that you regular, obviously bored, weirdo everyday posters have a surfing background. Just interesting that CI/Al Merrick got sued 25 or so years ago in a similar scenario. In that incident a local lady had her eye put out at Hammonds. Al was the surfer but the legal theory at trial that prevailed, was that the design of the board was "defective." The pointed nose, that up until then vitually every shortboard ever built had, was determined to be unreasonalby dangerous. Since then all CI shortboards are made with a squared off nose. With CI now owned by Burton, I am surpirsed they don't just settle this one. That may still be the result. Insurance companies hate trying these kind of unusal cases. Today CIs are so ubiquitous that the potential liability of a negative jury verdict is not worth the risk.

Tony has already been through hell. The headline is a terrible editorial mistake! You should fix it and apologize.

Bendy White, the only lifetime local on the Council, is now the swing vote on development and General Plan issues. He is clearly the most knowledgeable and experienced person at the City on local land use. I am good with that. Great election result. If the Mayor wants a General Plan approved, she is going to have to compromise somewhere about where the Plan is today.

Well it doesn't look like the results are going to change! From the perspective of a life long SB local who has been a local political junkie since highschool, this was a sea change election.
1) The "New Democrats" becoming the pro-growthers rather than the other way around and the "revolt" by Sheila Lodge and other like minded "Old Democrats" and the local electorate.
2) The failure of a very aggressive and well funded Democratic political machine to be successful. Could not imagine this result in the era of Harriett Miller.
3) The biggest fundraiser not being successful, and with what many felt would be an insurmountable family connection.
4) Although I support our local police and fire personel and do not begrudge them choosing to be represented by their Unions, in light of the importance of their union support in most recent local elections and the amount of money they spent in this one, their complete failure is amazing!
It is a new day in local politics and that is a good thing!

Pretty interesting result. Close enough it could change but not likley. Is this the first time in history the biggest fundraiser didn't win a seat? Pretty dismal result for Daraka and the "New Deomocrats." I think they will have to seriously consider new leadership.
Bendy becomes the swing vote on development issues and the General Plan. I think that will be OK.
