Santa Barbara County Republican Party Endorses Chris Mitchum for Congress

Board vote backs Robin Walter as candidate for 35th Assembly District seat

At a special meeting of the Santa Barbara County Republican Party Central Committee on Saturday, a motion was passed to recommend the endorsement of Republican candidates Chris Mitchum for the newly redrawn 24th Congressional District and Robin Walter for the newly redrawn 35th Assembly District.

“Chris Mitchum will fight for us in Washington to cut the size of the federal government, reign in the national debt, and fight to make us competetive in the global economy,” said Gregory Gandrud, chairman of the Santa Barbara County Republican Party and vice chairman of the California Republican Party for the Central Coast Region.

“Robin Walter understands that less government and more freedom is the key to creating more jobs and better opportunities for the people of California,” he added.

Both candidates strongly support increased production of energy so that California and the nation can create more jobs and reduce the cost of manufactured goods.

The California Republican Party’s Board of Directors will meet Sunday in Burbank to review endorsement recommendations from throughout the state. The California Republican Party has the final say in making official party endorsements prior to the June 5 primary election.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
