I guess a $5mill campaign investment pays off if it manufactures a load of BS that undoes the Independent's endorsement process. If Marianne is so concerned about "good governance" and public finances when it comes to Measure P, how on EARTH can she support Measure S, a bond measure that is among the least transparent Ive ever seen. Nonsense, Indy, nonsense.

hmmm true to form, the personal attacks have begun ....those of us who've actually been around a while in this County know the truth- and we also know what voters respond to. Character assassination just isn't that fruitful

i talked to a few of the rank and file about the "decision" to oppose Measure P- it was a foregone conclusion based on the rhetoric of Santa Maria Energy- they never talked to the proponents, never dug into the "facts". The "sad firefighter" cute models predicting doom and gloom are beginning to work against the credibility of public safety unions once voters actually read the independent statements from the auditor and county counsel. Plain language makes clear that Measure P does not impact existing drilling. Period. So the baseless fear mongering that threatens the loss of public safety or teachers jobs is looking pretty ignorant to voters.

Ahhhh nuffalready, if only ....... The North could have had their "mission County" but didn't want to lose the cash cows of Montecito and Hope Ranch, and the property taxes that provide the services for the north. Shame, really.

"Alleged" rapes?? While the accused is the alleged perpetrator, the offense committed upon victims was reported as rape. Will the Indy now be classifying other crimes as "alleged shooting", "alleged stabbing" etc....

a community college that truly serves its local community would have no need to build housing and would also not be admitting students who take over existing local housing, pushing out families and low income and workforce residents in both SB and IV. Time for the city to reign in this institution with whatever means possible and return it to the local community college it was intended to be.

Basically this is a church operating in a public building- the state promoting one religion.,....an all-male one at that.....i don't care how well intentioned they are - this is proselytizing, plain and simple, and needs to end.

Perhaps time for Roger to take his oil and developer money and move to tea-party country in the 4th or 5th District- he will no longer be able to deceive the people of Goleta into thinking he actually cares about anything other than his and his donors self-interest.

So Matt Dies would rather take the word of a lying, remorseless drunk who left his daughter for dead in the road? Shame.
