Your DSA has been working hard to cultivate valuable relationships with local politicians and groups, so that the DSA could count on our elective officials to support Law Enforcement. The DSA has not taken positions in all elected races, but we would like for you to consider our recommendations and encourage the people you know to also support them. In addition, we have also reached out to PORAC and they too have provided input two very important propositions.
PORAC Supports Proposition 20, which will restrict parole for certain offenses currently considered to be Non-Violent. Authorizes felony sentences for certain offenses currently treated only as misdemeanors.
PORAC Opposes Proposition 25, which change the law that replaced money bail with system based on public safety and flight risk.
Your DSA Board has endorsed the following candidates, and asks you to also support them:
United States Representative Race for 24th Congressional District we support, Andy Caldwell. Andy has supported local law enforcement here in Santa Barbara County for many years, and has been the head of Coalition of Labor, Agriculture & Business (COLAB) for many years.
