Does any reader think the powers that be have not already selected the person to fill this position? This is why the political parties and movers and shakers spend money on electing their people and views--so that in places like this their policies will be on the cutting edge and their "up and coming talent" will get some credibility and resume'. Whether this is wrong is hard to say.

Please someone who puts Santa Barbara above Sacramento, the real estate lobby, and the housing authority.

Please let it be someone who cares about the city - respect for historic structures, preservation of mountain and ocean views, understanding you can't keep cramming people into a finite area without causing major traffic jams and impacts on the environment - water, garbage, sewage. And, maintaining setbacks for buildings providing open space rather than covering every square inch with concrete.
