Come Celebrate Labor Day with Us!
There has not been a more important time to stand with labor in recent memory.
The Republican majority has rolled back labor and employment protections, while also refusing to fund or enforce the currently existing laws. Meanwhile, California has led the way: creating millions more jobs, passing equal pay legislation, establishing a living wage, protecting our invaluable natural resources and expanding health care for all.
This year, we are excited to have labor leader Yesenia DeCausus join us. To RSVP and purchase tickets, click.
There’s lots of work to do; begin by celebrating Labor Day with your fellow Santa Barbara County Democratic Party! Enjoy tasty BBQ, great camaraderie and the beautiful scenery of Oak Park. Help support your local Democratic Party fight to support the rights of working people to unite, to protest, to withhold their labor, to boycott unfair businesses, and to demand change in all areas of business and society precede and transcend individual labor statutes.
This year’s picnic will go from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on Monday, September 3, 2018. Tickets are $25 at the door (Children 8 and under get in free) or save time and purchase your meal and drink tickets in advance.
We hope to see you there!

School District & SBCC
The Santa Barbara County Democratic Party endorsed candidates for both the Santa Barbara Unified School District board and for the Santa Barbara Community Collegeboard of trustees at its June meeting. For the two open seats on the K-12 school board the DCC endorsed Ismael Paredes Ulloa and Rose Muñoz. Paredes Ulloa is currently filling out an unexpired term on the board, and Muñoz is a newcomer, but long active in local schools and the Democratic community.
For the SBCC District 2 Trustee position, Robert Miller received the party’s endorsement, as did Kate Parker for District 7. Miller is a retired attorney who has been active in community issues related to housing, land use, environmental protection and renewable energy since moving to Goleta in 2014. He was appointed to the Goleta Planning Commission in January 2017 and to the SBCC Board of Trustees in February 2018. Parker is employed as the library director at Cate School in Carpinteria, and has served on the Santa Barbara Unified school board the past 12 years.
