Three County Democratic Party Chairs Endorse Salud Carbajal for Congress

In an early show of Democratic Party support, the elected chairs of the three county Democratic Party committees that comprise the 24th Congressional District have endorsed Salud Carbajal for Congress.

They join a growing list of over 100 elected officials, business and community leaders who have endorsed Carbajal.

Santa Barbara County Democratic Party Chair Daraka Larimore Hall: “Salud is a problem solver who brings people together, and that’s exactly the kind of leadership we need in Congress. As a county supervisor, he’s worked with diverse voices to get results — from delivering health insurance for Santa Barbara’s kids to rebuilding our roads and bridges.”

San Luis Obispo County Democratic Party Chair Pat Harris: “No one has fought harder than Salud to protect our natural environment and our special way of life on the Central Coast. He’s fought tirelessly to block additional offshore oil drilling and preserve our open spaces. Salud’s reached out to community groups and small businesses across SLO County to make sure our voices are heard, and I know we can count on him in Washington.”

Ventura County Democratic Party Chair Thom Tibor: “As a former Marine, Salud has devoted his life to public service and giving back to the community that gave him so much. Growing up in public housing where his family struggled to make ends meet, Salud is committed to improving education and creating opportunity for all Central Coast families to get ahead.”

Other community leaders already endorsing Carbajal for Congress include:

» California Secretary of State Alex Padilla

» Former Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell

» Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley

» San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Bruce Gibson

» Santa Barbara County Supervisor Janet Wolf

» Ventura County Supervisors Steve Bennett, Kathy Long and John Zaragoza

— Cory Black is a publicist representing the Salud Carbajal for Congress Campaign.

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!
