Fourth District Supervisor Peter Adam

Fourth District Supervisor Peter Adam ​(pictured) — ​now chair of the Santa Barbara County Board ​— ​said half-jokingly Tuesday that when he was elected three years ago, “I was absolutely petrified that someone would make me the chair.” That changed after he watched his four colleagues rotate through their appointments. “They are all my mentors,” he continued with a smile, “so to the four of you, if you don’t like what I’m doing, you may be looking in the mirror.” Adam said during his time as chair he plans to restructure the format of the meetings by moving administrative items up and pushing public comment back.
