Chamber of Commerce Announces School Board Endorsements

The Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has announced the endorsement of candidates Ed Heron and Charlotte Ware for election to the Santa Barbara School Board. The chamber board voted unanimously to endorse the two candidates.

“Of the six candidates running for the three open school board seats, we felt that Mr. Heron and Mrs. Ware are the two best qualified people to represent the interest of the business community,” said Steve Cushman, chamber president.

Heron has been both the Realtor of the Year and the Businessperson of the Year for the chamber. He has had a distinguished 42-year career in local real estate. He is a dedicated volunteer and philanthropist. He cares about education and the community.

Ware is willing and ready to use her engineering experience, passion for education, concern for students, and respect for teachers and staff on the Santa Barbara School Board. It is her priority that each student receive a quality education in a safe and respectful environment.

Marcia Reed is vice president of the Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce.

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!
