Letter to the Editor: Vote Joan Hartmann for 3rd District Supervisor

Do you want to see your community thrive and lead the way toward economic, social and environmental stability? Vote for Joan Hartmann for Santa Barbara County’s Third District supervisor!

I was so happy to see Joan Hartmann running for the seat recently. We’ve worked together for years to improve the Buellton community, primarily through the Buellton Visioning process. Our group of dedicated Buelltonians specifically put together and promoted the Environmental Sustainability component of the current Buellton Visioning Plan. Joan kept us together and focused on the essential environmental improvements we wanted to see in our city.

Our group fought over the river trail element, but Joan smoothed ruffled feathers and worked out a compromise acceptable to trail lovers and the farmers involved. I’ve watched Joan bring people together, repeatedly, both in Buellton and on the county Planning Commission, to promote environmental and community progress.

Her detailed knowledge of regulations and planning and development issues is amazing. Joan is a great person to work with and the Third District would be fortunate to have her as their new supervisor.

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!
