The heart of local government is about land use, and no one is better qualified to represent the Santa Barbara County 3rd District than Joan Hartmann. I have known Joan for eight years. Joan is wise, thoughtful, and a good listener.
Joan has served as a member of the county’s Planning Commission since 2012, where she worked to protect the Gaviota coast. Previously, she spearheaded the first voter-approved Urban Growth Boundary Initiative in Buellton and was an advisor on a similar initiative adopted in Goleta. Both initiatives will allow voters to decide whether urban development should expand to agricultural land.
As a former member of the Board of Trustees in the Buellton Union School District, I believe elected officials should work for its residents. I believe Joan Hartmann will work tirelessly for the citizens of Santa Barbara County by making good choices and ensuring government works for those it represents.
Please join me in supporting Joan Hartmann for 3rd District Supervisor.
