Letter to the Editor: Who Is This Woman?

In reading comments to Ron Fink’s columns in Noozhawk I noticed a person named Jane Behr, who attacks his positions on everything that involves the ex -mayor of Lompoc, John Linn, who is now running for reelection to that position against present Mayor Bob Lingl.

Linn & Mosby are trying to promote the Motorsport high speed race track (it is NOT a park) in the middle of Lompoc as “good for our city.”

While watching the City Council meeting and attending them, one always sees this same Jane Behr jumping up during public comment, attacking anything and everything our Mayor says. She constantly criticizes the policies and suggestions in the Council’s Handbook, which ask the public to show respect and exhibit some decorum towards other members of the public and our elected members of the Council.

She uses words that try to embarrass and belittle our present Mayor Bob Lingl. Just who is she? Well, she is John Linn’s campaign manager and seems to do anything she can to disrupt the council meetings. 

She is out to attack and belittle the opposition in every way.  On the council she has support from Mosby and Victor Vega and sometimes Dirk Starbuck.  Mosby owes Linn, and Vega owes Mosby and Starbuck is a fellow traveler.  Now you know why the “look good” comments by Ms. Behr are coming out now.  So called transparency issues, podium position, clapping at hearings, free speech, etc.  Sheer nonsense.  Politics as usual directed by ex-mayor John Linn.

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!
