What People Say About Joan Hartmann

Joan has been an effective leader who continuously focuses on the good of the community. She works in partnership with community members, local and regional leaders to deliver community outcomes for our county.

Monique Limón, State Senator

The people of Santa Barbara are better off because of Joan’s exemplary leadership. I am strongly supporting her re-election not only because she is a tremendously valuable and compassionate colleague from whom I learn a great deal, but because we all need her experienced and steady hand to guide our county into the future. Joan’s integrity is impeccable. Everyday I have the pleasure of seeing her commitment to the values we hold dear: building more cohesive communities, a sustainable future, protecting open spaces and advocating for those who need it most. I endorse her whole-heartedly.

Laura Capps, County Supervisor 2nd District

Supervisor Joan Hartmann is a tireless fighter for all of Goleta’s residents. She works hard every day to protect Goleta’s important agricultural lands and the Gaviota Coast. She is a leader on addressing climate change and fire resiliency.

Paula Perotte, Mayor of Goleta

I strongly support Joan Hartmann’s re-election because she has a proven record of working to preserve our agricultural resources in the Goleta Valley. I trust her to continue listening, and to be responsive to the needs of our community.

James Kyriaco, Goleta City Councilmember

Joan is an exceptional leader with a proven commitment to our county’s well-being. She understands the diverse nature of our county and considers all voices when making decisions.

Elysia Lewis, Buellton City Council

Supervisor Hartmann has helped to strengthen our safety net, supported our seniors and veterans, and has been a solid partner in achieving a more resilient and caring community here in the Santa Ynez Valley.

David Silva, Buellton City Councilmember

Supervisor Hartmann has been a driving force for Lompoc since the County’s 3rd District shifted to include the entire city. Her independent thinking and respectful engagement with all viewpoints, even those she politically disagrees with, are truly commendable. She sees Lompoc’s immense potential and works relentlessly to realize it. A passionate advocate for the renaissance of our old downtown, Joan has used her extensive network to garner significant attention and resources for the area. Her efforts have attracted millions in state and foundation funding, revitalizing the downtown theater district and supporting youth violence prevention programs, all while attentively addressing the diverse needs of our community residents.

Jeremy Ball, Lompoc City Councilmember

Joan Hartmann is continuously working to make our neighborhoods safer. Supervisor Hartmann has been at the forefront of efforts to reduce crime, enhance public safety, and provide criminal justice services in an effective, timely, fair, and cost-efficient manner. During her time in office, the County has opened the state-of-the art north branch jail, increased funding for diversion and alternative justice programs aimed at reducing recidivism, and approved a complex criminal discovery system which will reduce County costs and assure that criminal trials can be heard in a timely manner.

John Savrnoch, District Attorney

Joan Hartmann helped balance the budget, restore our emergency reserves, and plan for future capital improvements and replacements, in a fiscally conservative manner.

Harry Hagen, County Treasurer

Joan Hartmann is one of the finest elected officials in the County. Her integrity, work ethic, and positive agenda make her a great asset on the Board of Supervisors.

Dr. Lanny Ebenstein, Past President, SB Board of Education

Since Joan Hartman has taken over Lompoc as part of the 3rd Santa Barbara County Supervisorial District she has been very involved in Lompoc and very visible in our community.  She is making a difference.  It is my pleasure to endorse her.

Alice Milligan, Lompoc Unified School District Associate Superintendent Retired

Please join us in supporting Joan for re-election. Her stellar track record is a testament to her determination and resourcefulness. She has proved to be outstandingly qualified to take action on a range of issues from homelessness to renewable energy to the protection of our open spaces. She has vision with a think-out-of-the-box attitude. She has strong convictions yet knows how to be a team player to get results. She is a dynamo with a big heart for animals and the community.

Dwight & Kimberly Lowell

Joan’s vision and hard work are making a local impact in addressing climate change. She advocated for the development of a clean energy battery storage facility in Goleta, which is helping to make the polluting Peaker Plant obsolete. She helped clear the last hurdles to make the development of the Strauss Wind Power project near Lompoc a reality. Looking ahead, she’s focused on creating a Virtual Power Plant for the South Coast to ensure our power supply, especially during disasters.

Dr. Leah Stokes, Professor of Climate and Energy Policy

I’ve been a Lompoc resident prior to Joan being the representative for my district. The previous representative would make an appearance every now and then…Joan is a constant presence. I see her at various community events, connecting with all her constituents. She seems to really care about our needs and open to collaborating and thinking outside the box to help all Lompoc residents have a safer and healthier community. I appreciate her sincere interest and approachability. When I don’t know which door to knock on, I’ve knocked on hers and she’s always answered.

Maribel Landeros

Joan has my endorsement because she does the right thing for the right reason. Her decisions show due diligence, common sense, and compassion

Betsy M. Schaffer, CPA, Auditor-Controller, County of Santa Barbara
