Obviously, the resounding election victory of Supervisor Roger Aceves PROVES that Revenue Neutrality is a burning and critical issue, heavy on the priorities of the county voters.

I missed the part in this news article where Goleta offers to annex Isla Vista as a good faith offer in negotiations with the county.

SBCC stimulates demand for students from outside the County or nation to come to the South Coast and increase demand for cheap rental housing.

Their current proposal completely ignores this when they could build student housing with some of that new money. But they will not admit that.

If fracking were not ever a threat, then why are they opposed to a petition to ban fracking within the city?

Follow the money, Indy. Follow the money who contributed to whom.

If he made 40 of his proposed 64 rental apartments truly affordable, instead of 10, this would be a good deal for the public. Until then, it is all just more massive building along the waterfront, further fueling gentrification.

Just how seriously should any comments here be considered if the writer does not know the difference between the Community College District and the City of Santa Barbara as separate government agencies that have no control over each other?

JohnLocke, why do you have such a boner for bicyclists like that?
Because so many car drivers are hit and/or killed by bicyclists every month?

dou4now: apostrophes or lack thereof, do look into that.

Why again are we supposed to object to the Yes on P side advertising and hiring campaign workers when the No on P side is funded a thousand times more by the global oil industry?

Apparently, led most recently by Council (the) Man Frank Hotchkiss, because some bicyclists violate the vehicle code and fail to stop, then, by logical extension/resentment, automobile drivers also should be able to blow through legal stops just as well.

How about this: all drivers and bike riders should actually follow the rules of a four-way stop and learn the sequence of stops and goes in proper sequence. If a bicyclist gets hit a time or two because he fails to follow the law, then so be it. The dumb bicyclists might start to learn that way.

But, please, let's stop with all this bicyclist envy and resentment crap. It is just pathetic and tiresome.

Does it bother anybody else that the oil industry of Texas, a megacorporate organization, would be so desperate they troll and only find a hack from 300 miles away in San Jose? Are they trying to mask their true identity? Why couldn’t its members just tell it like it is and say their concern is about corporate welfare and subsidized profits?
