There is a bad security situation going on right now. It's virtually impossible to get into the Hope Ranch neighborhood and the event organizers haven't trained any of their orange-clad monitors or security staff to help motorists find open roads into that community. My husband and I spent an hour this morning trying to attend a garden event in Hope Ranch but every access street we tried was blocked and none of the five monitors we asked at various blocked roads on our attempted routes was able to direct us to an open road. "People keep asking us how to get into Hope Ranch," smiled one man casually. "But we don't know." We finally asked a cop in a Highway Patrol car and he said "I don't know this area. I've just been hired in for the day." Unbelievable.

What if there was an emergency and someone needed to get to a friend or loved one's aid in the cut-off Hope Ranch neighborhood? Doesn't anyone understand the public safety or liability issues?

People seem to forget that there were strong reasons why a group of new candidates for the SBCC Board of Trustees ran and won in the last election. Things were NOT right at SBCC and change was needed. Many Santa Barbara citizens and taxpayers were greatly concerned that a cherished local institution was turning its back on the community.

We elected this new Board. Now let's support them as they create the change we asked for.
