Some say people change with time, but I guess those who say that have never met Salud Carbajal, who hasn’t changed his colors since he first ran for 1st District supervisor.

His comment regarding Lompoc being the “armpit” of Santa Barbara reminded me of the interview my board of directors and I had with him in 2003 for an endorsement from the Santa Barbara Deputy Sheriff’s Association. I was DSA president at that time.

After introducing Salud, he made a few remarks that shocked everyone in attendance. Without skipping a beat, Salud arrogantly said, “I don’t need to be here. I’m going to win.”

The only reason he came to our endorsement meeting was to check off another box on his to-do list, and since then, he has done nothing to support the security of our community.

Washington is already full of arrogant politicians who do not listen or care about the people they are supposed to serve. We don’t need to send another one there to represent us.
