Several Candidates are running for office in March 2020 for the Santa Barbara County’s Board of Supervisor seats in Districts 1 and 3. The League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara’s Education Fund is sponsoring Candidate Forums in which each Candidate will be asked a list of questions and provided equal time to answer. These Forums will also be livestreamed by TVSB on the League’s Facebook page and available for later viewing on YouTube – see my.lwv.org/california/santa-barbara
