Sheriff Bill Brown is clearly the most qualified candidate!
Sheriff Brown has earned my vote because he has the experience, integrity and proven track record of doing a stellar job for Santa Barbara County. He is a brilliant leader who has successfully led us through challenging times.
He has implemented new and innovative programs to reduce crime, make our streets safer and also provide rehabilitation/reentry for inmates.
Take, for example, his approach to those suffering from mental illnesses. The appropriate diversion to community-based alternatives and partnering with Santa Barbara County Department of Behavioral Wellness to respond to mental health crisis-related calls is compassionate and in line with current enlightened approaches advocated by mental health/medical professionals.
His goal of creating a program to address opioid/fentanyl deaths is another example of how Sheriff Brown sees a problem and seeks a solution for the betterment of our community.
Sheriff Brown is astutely proactive, and I would like to see his outstanding work continue to make our county a better, safer place to live.
Thank you, Sheriff Brown, for all you’ve done!
