David Bearman for Supervisor

A Prescription for Change!

Home Bios Issues Events Donate Volunteer/Contact Us


Dear neighbor,

Join me in my vision for a healthy Santa Barbara County. A healthy Santa Barbara consists of an environment for us and future generations, with clean air, clean water, adequate mass transit. A healthy community means a thriving middle class of professionals, technicians, teachers, firefighters, mechanics, plumbers, electricians, engineers and other working people. A healthy County requires a healthy relationship between the County and the diverse people it represents.

This is a critical election. Our County is at a crossroads. Santa Barbara County can once again be at the forefront of progressive national environmental and social initiatives. I am the person to do this; I have shown that I am a problem-solver and am not afraid to stand up for what I believe in. I am running for 3rd District Supervisor to reverse the damage caused by the boardís decisions over the last four years, to protect our environment, support our work force, and improve access to health care.

Please join us in our campaign.

My prescription for change goes beyond the pulls of politics. My diverse experiences in a variety of realms within our community gives me a profound perspective on the communityís needs.

Iíve served on the Countyís Long-Term Care Committee, its Drug Abuse Technical Advisory Committee, Mental Health Master Plan Committee. I've worked on drug abuse treatment and prevention since arriving here in 1970 and was a consultant to the S.B. County schools for 9 years on drug abuse prevention and early intervention. I was instrumental in the formation of the Fatherhood Coalition, an effort to improve parenting and strengthen families. I have worked to empower and serve the Hispanic community since starting the Isla Vista Medical Clinic in 1970, having served on the Board of Esparza de Salud, on the East Santa Barbara Health Task Force, and been Medical Director of Zona Seca.

Together, we can make government more responsible. I need your help. Iíll be glad to meet with you and your neighbors around the kitchen tables.
