The Santa Barbara County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association, which represents over 460 public safety members, has endorsed First District Supervisor Das Williams in his bid for re-election in 2020.

Williams was elected to represent the First District on the county Board of Supervisors in 2017. During his time on the board, he provided leadership during the catastrophic Thomas Fire and the Jan. 9 debris flow that devastated areas in and around Montecito.

Over the past 2 1/2 years, Williams has been responsive to the needs of the residents of Santa Barbara County families and residents. Williams has a stellar track record of supporting public safety programs spanning over his 20-year political career.

Williams was also instrumental with bringing the North Branch Jail to fruition.

For these reasons, the Santa Barbara County Deputy Sheriff’s Association supports Williams in his reelection campaign.
