This letter supports the candidacy for election to the post of Supervisor of the County of Santa Barbara of Dr. Joan Hartmann. She studies her subjects of interest well, learns the related backgrounds, and expresses her views pertinently well. She is already a local asset and would work for the betterment of the wider community.
My wife and I have had a home in Buellton for over 20 years, and I have had the pleasure of knowing Hartmann for several years. I have found her bright and cheerful, polite and well-spoken, considerate, and helpful and loyal in friendship. She is thoughtful and involved in the civic affairs of the folks of this community and county. She is tenacious and energetic and thrives on her involvements. I believe and value her honest integrity and her good and likable character.
