Umm the average resident who was here 20+ years ago when Montecito elitists destroyed the previous 101-widening under Measure D r dismayed at watching a whole new group of monied Montecitans derail the voter-supported 101 HOV lane - and now it seems the very elected officials who heartily supported the "lane and train" and manipulated voters into supporting Measure A r "exiting" the plan mid-CEQA in a private backroom ploy (using the media as a prop). Good luck folks ever getting another local tax measure passed. Build the friggin (uninterrupted) HOV lane already! Those who romanticize the left-hand exits need to pool their money and write a nostalgic coffee-table book singing their praises and memorializing for future generations

Vote by mail (only) is proving to be a detriment, sadly. Driving by polling place signs before and after work always serves as encouragement, when poll voting is an option.

Oh foo. That "class" train left the station long ago.....When the Mayor aligned herself with a certain "consultant". Council member Hart, however, has always been gracious, honest and collaborative and he ran a clean campaign- no need for stealth attackers. So onward!

Good job, Gregg. Refreshing to see that the underhanded, desperate attempts to derail your campaign backfired, despite the tens of 1000's pours into the effort. Not sure why the Mayor was so intent on keeping you off, but glad your voice of reason and intelligence will be back.

Lol......people must not be reading the article clearly.....a private vendor didn't comply with contract. Vendor was asked for more info by reporter and didn't respond.......so naturally the astute commenters blame California?! I guess all noncompliance by private vendors should be overlooked when public agencies do business with them. Bizarre logic. Not even sure why this is a news article since.

Yea Im with Foo- David Cash and Meg Jette r being a bit disingenuous in assuming the "victim" posture. Basic Aid status brings with it plusses nd minuses, risks and rewards. Bottom line is: cant keep your cake and eat it too.

Chilling. If anyone needed evidence of class and racial privilege playing a part in the justice system, here it is. Participants in A vicious well planned kidnapping and homicide that went on for days affording all participants an opportunity to extricate themselves And summon authorities- even anonymously- getting out of prison so soon, long before they hit even middle age. Obviously as evidenced by pressleys comments, zero remorse. Tragic.

..and some people realize that in the scheme of things being "part" of a "nightmare"- again, a kidnap and brutal murder - does not fit the concept of there ever being "enough" time served that would compensate for having the capacity and willingness to engage in the "part" in the first place.

Hmmm somehow i dont think Dostoevsky had kidnap and murder in mind when he referenced civilization vs prisons....he is probably rolling over in his grave now

Hmmmm not sure the City charter really gives the Mayor such power, regardless of what the new york Attorney General decrees.....perhaps, but seems an overreachhttp://www.santabarbaraca.gov/civicax...
