Sharon Byrne Announces Run for City Council

Sharon Byrne, long the public face of the Milpas Community Association but a downtown resident, announced she’s running for the Santa Barbara City Council this November to represent District 3, which includes most of what’s regarded as the Westside. Byrne will run against incumbent Councilmember Cathy Murillo, now completing her first term in office. Murillo and Byrne both ran four years ago, but then the elections were at-large rather than by district. Only Murillo was elected. In the past four years, the two have differed on several issues, most recently over the proposed Eastside Business Improvement District, which Byrne has championed.
