Letter to the Editor: Katcho Is the Best Person for the Job

For too long, the central coast has been represented in Congress by Lois Capps.

During this time, there has been a bias toward Santa Barbara and neglect towards the needs of rural Santa Barbara County, Northern Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo County.

Voters in our district now have an opportunity to reimagine our voice in Washington: by electing Katcho Achadjian to Congress.

As a longtime Central Coast resident and small-business owner, I’ve observed Katcho’s work.

His years on the SLO County Board of Supervisors and in the State Assembly have prepared him well for congress.

Katcho has always been fiscally conservative and socially responsible.

He’s a strong advocate for local control over budgets and policy and understands how state or federal policies rarely apply on a local level.

I’d expect him to wrestle back funding that can be applied by local governments.

Katcho is the only candidate with the experience to understand issues that face the central coast.

This election shouldn’t be determined by partisan politics, Republican vs. Democrat.

If voters take to the polls as one would look at hiring the best person for the job, Katcho is the candidate of choice.

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!
