SB CAN Action Fund: Endorsements Announced

It endorses Helene Schneider for Santa Barbara mayor, and Grant House, David Pritchett and Harwood 'Bendy' White for council

The Santa Barbara County Action Network (SB CAN) Action Fund has announced its endorsements for this year’s Santa Barbara city election.

For mayor, the organization has endorsed Helene Schneider because of her achievements and record as a City Council member.

For City Council, the fund has endorsed incumbent Councilman Grant House and two candidates who would join the council for the first time: David Pritchett and Harwood “Bendy” White.

In giving its support, the organization said all three have the experience and motivation to lead Santa Barbara in these challenging times, and have demonstrated their dedication to the key SB CAN environmental priorities of housing, open space and transportation. All equally have pledged their support to the causes of social justice.

The group held a candidate forum on Aug. 12.

— Deborah Brasket is executive director of the Santa Barbara County Action Network (SB CAN).

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.

Thanks for asking!
