Nice try, but no gets elected any more to Goleta City Council, so you get the council you elected.

See, more of those tax and spend damn Liberals scaring away American tech and manufacturing industries out of expensive places like downtown Santa Barbara and California!
Now Sonos will force their employees out of their cars and into high density housing within walking distance for their employees.
O the Horror!!!

I don't know what the problem is. Ballot Box Budgeting has worked so very well for State of California, has it not?

Roger "Turbanhead" Aceves does not seem to understand that his whining about the Revenue Neutrality Agreement for why Goleta should get more County money means that he also is advocating that Noleta should get less money from the County, whilst at the same time most of the votes in his supervisorial election contest will be coming from Noleta.
That is a free tip, Roger, because you really are gonna need it the way that Janet Wolf will clean up on votes in the Santa Barbara city portion of the Second District.

blahblahmoreblah is an accurate moniker for these apparently nonsensical teapartian conspiracy theories and climate deniers.
One more time: people and fish don't cause droughts, atmospheric high pressure zones off the west coast of North America do.

The viticulture is as sour as the lemons there in The Good Land.
But if they annex Isla Vista and Noleta, then they can renegotiate.
Goletans are getting the council members they elected, especially Farr.

"Tom Bird" and his anonymous blog/bitchfest SB View had a display table during Earth Day a couple of years ago, but no body ever was at their table.
We need Blogabarbara again, please.

So, one of the loudest advocates for the proposed injunction admits that realtors must disclose it:
"Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss, a real estate agent and ardent supporter of the gang injunction, has argued that such disclosures might prove advantageous in selling properties in certain neighborhoods."

Our nation's dead Founders and I commend the Indy for getting to the point about how really and sincerely to increase voter participation and elect a city council far more accountable and directly responsible for the quality of life for all the city residents. To wit:
"Other suggestions included implementing even-year elections and changing local campaign FINANCE RULES."
"...the City of Palmdale was ordered by a judge to replace its at-large system with district elections and to do so IN EVEN-NUMBERED YEARS to coincide with statewide and national elections."
We need unity and patriotism in our nation and city, not racial conflict and animosity that only fans the vestigial flames of our dwindling differences. The advocates of city elections to a ward system of fiefdoms only set the stage for a permanent gerrymandered bias in favor of the Whigs, who would dominate the whole city council and consistently outvote the dreams and clamors of the people in the dense urban neighborhoods of workers and immigrants.
