Santa Barbara's newest member of the city council has seen quite a bit in the first week and knows he has a lot to learn. 

At the same time, Oscar Gutierrez says his solutions might get some early looks not only in his area, District 3,  but downtown which needs help right now.

"Getting to know all of the departments, what they do and who they are, has been eye opening," said Gutierrez who is 34 years old. "There are subjects that I am facing that I have never ever thought of but it is gratifying that I know it is for the greater good," he said.

I’ll give him once chance...but if he starts talking like the bought and paid for mayor and her cronies then it’s over for me and he goes on the naughty list. C’mon Oscar!

Maybe this man doesn't know everything about the city departments but I bet he'll be a quick learner. After all, we have people elected to offices in Washington D. C. who have no clue and don't seem to want to learn.

Nice! The electorate votes in a guy who doesn't know all the city departments and what they do, and is facing subjects he never ever thought about. WTH?

Roger, you're not in his district so you didn't have the option to vote for him.

Millennials of all classes will get stuck with the bills the past 20 years of progressives have rung up. It is a matter of aging and demographics. Take a closer look at the public pension crisis 6640. It has Millennials name on all the overdue accounts. This is tragic and I hope sense finally this is taxation without representation, but that will be their call. They have been warned so it will be interesting if they keep signing up for more of the same debt denying reality.

Oh Waaaa. So tired of people trying to pit Millennials against other generations. I mean I get it that everything is to be blamed on the Boomers...but get over it! It is a class war, not a generational war.

He will get co-opted by the city employee unions, just like all the rest of them and run up more debt for the Millennials to pay off.

Oscar is the perfect person for the job. He is an idependent thinker and visionary. Plus, he is not going to be a "rubber stamper" blindly folowing orders from anyone else. He is the definition of a maverick, and is not going to be pushed around. We are so lucky to have him because this intelligent gentleman will look after the best interests of everyone....not just special interest groups!
