Background[ edit ] Because of the abundance of oil in the thick sedimentary rock layers beneath the Santa Barbara Channel, the region has been an attractive resource for the petroleum industry for more than a hundred years. In the late s, when the Summerland field began to expand much closer to the city of Santa Barbara, a crowd of midnight vigilantes headed by local newspaper publisher Reginald Fernald tore down one of the more unsightly rigs erected on Miramar Beach itself in the location of a luxury hotel. This caused the city to be bracketed on east and west with oil fields, the new one a bonanza and the depleted Summerland field a largely abandoned, blighted waste.

In response to the letter written by Mr. Barnes a candidate on November 6th to the editor, I say the facts speak for themselves.
I do not twist the truth. And, our legislators need to be truthful to our County taxpayers. Even when the truth hurts. I am amazed at what he has written. Barnes needs to go to www. This is the first budget he helped prepare as a new legislator.
This is the year he first took office and refers to. Our fund balance was almost depleted, and we were deemed to be in fiscal distress by the New York State Comptroller. The County was in excellent shape with a more than reasonable cash surplus. Barnes is the Finance Chairman.
He has copies of all the budgets. My letter gave our taxpayers information that needed to be shared before the budget hearing coming up. I also think that our taxpayers need to know the facts in this case. I painted no picture. New York State Municipal Law does, and it refers to a reasonable cash surplus for the size of the budget.
Barnes, there is no law to prevent it. By law it can only be used in that manner, and it is left up to the discretion of our representatives to do so. I presented only one opinion at the end of my letter -- that some Cash Surplus could be put into the Budget to help our taxpayers have more money to spend and stimulate the economy.My favorite book is Frankly Fannie by A.J.
