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.
