It doesn't matter what oil/natural gas project it is. The EDC (and it's sub groups) own at least two of our supervisors, while a third trades votes.
Time to make a difference where we can. Get rid of Janet Wolf in the upcoming election.
On Concerns Persist with Proposed Oil Extraction on Ellwood Coast

So who bought Salud's vote, or was it a trade for a vote on SME?
Another thing, if Salud does run for other office, what other Supervisor is going to hold the index cards telling Janet Wolff how to vote on an agenda item?
On Chumash Call out Carbajal

A few things are pretty clear...
-Only a jury's opinion will matter in the end.
-They're both adults and responsible for their own behavior, but Peterson was a very powerful and influential person conducting himself in a manner with complete disregard for the position of leadership he held.
-The only way Peterson could have sent that many texts was to have done so at work.
-If it comes out that Jim Peterson has any sort of history of similar acts then Sheriff Brown is completely responsible for his Undersheriff's behavior and showed a lack of leadership in promoting him.
-Sgt Sandra Brown could have went straight to the media with a press conference playing gotcha politics, but she did the right thing within policy and common decency. Peterson was investigated BEFORE it was brought to light.
-This is a huge stain on the sheriff's department reputation.
This certainly effects my decision on election day.
On Undersheriff Jim Peterson Retired Amid 'Sexting' Scandal
Posted on November 26 at 5:55 p.m.
Anybody notice that Sheriff Bill Brown was told of this before August and Peterson didn't resign until October 16th? During that period Peterson remained on the job instead of being placed on admin leave. How many deputies did he stand in judgement of during that time? Not to mention all that time he was playing the role of Undersheriff Jim "Anthony Wiener" Peterson.
What's worse is that Bill Brown is well known to be the absent Sheriff. Always politicking around the state instead of taking care of his own house. Guess who's been in charge during all that time?
Goes to show the Sheriff's Department is more of a political peyton place than a law enforcement agency.

FYI: I can't stand that fat bag of BS Limbaugh. He stole 'environazi' from me.
I really don't care how much SME makes. I care about getting a safe revenue generating project off the ground. The softball project that this is clearly shows who pulls the strings with those 3 on the BOS. It's not the labor unions, it's the activists that have reputations to protect. EDC, GOO, ect have all said not another oil project in SB County, and that's what they've gotten.
Remember the little golf resort project in Lompoc a few years ago? That was another example of them pulling their BOS slave's short hairs, and the project had NO impact on them. It was just them flexing their paid for votes.
Wake up people.
On Enviros Successfully Challenge Oil Drilling Project
Posted on November 14 at 7:49 p.m.
@JA... You're right. We all share the same atmosphere, so making one project meet insane numbers is ridiculous. Just so you know... SBC does not have it's own atmosphere. We share it with the whole world.
I would support raising property taxes 200% on the enviros expensive homes in SB and Montecito, and forego the oil projects, to pay for underfunded county services. You in with me?

Why a Doreen Farr recall?? Janet Wolf is up for re-election next year against a democrat that actually gets it and has toured the SME operation. JANET WOLF IS AN IDIOT IN SEARCH OF DIRECTION. That direction is given to her and she follows orders like a good bought candidate. If you haven't noticed Janet is losing support left and left.
As much as it pains me to side with some of the right wing(nuts) I must agree this 10,000 number is absurd when compared to projects EVERY WHERE else. This IS NOT about safe numbers. It's about the environazi's being able to claim the power to stop any oil project, or project they don't agree with, in SB County. I saw a lot of the SB/ Montecito crowd voicing their opinions ($$) at the BOS about a project that DOES NOT effect them. Do you see them writing checks to pay for services the non-wealthy need.
EVERYONE else gave till it hurt during the recession cut backs. Time for the voters to show the insane enviros it's their time to give by throwing out Janet "Huh" Wolf.

Just how do you compare salaries and pensions of the "guns and hoses coalition" to the private sector? Just curious, being that the private sector is not required to put their lives in immediate danger of injury or death at a moments notice. Just how do you compare the two??
Just asking because it seems those that constantly want to judge every benefit by the private sector standard have never risked more than money in lives.

Why transport female inmates when they can sit in the jail lobby till daybreak or have someone pick them up. That's real rocket science.

Government SHOULD NOT be paying for this. The only way to get a free ride is to have no money when released, but it's the regular drunks who use the system all the time. So they get a free ride, beg for more money (where gullible citizens give it to them), go get stinking drunk, get arrested again and the process starts all over again.
How about NO free ride, people STOP giving money to transients and the base problem might start to improve. We (responsible citizens) are doing this to ourselves.
