For Immediate Release: Santa Barbara Channels, Channel 21, An Abundant Resource for Election Information

Local citizens seeking more than a sound bite or a partisan pamphlet to learn about candidates for public office, Measure D or Proposition 90 have a wealth of information as close as their TV screen!

The Santa Barbara Channels, Channel 21, has started airing a variety of different public forums on the 2nd District Supervisors’ race, the County Sheriff’s election, the Goleta City Council and Santa Barbara School Board elections, as well as forums on Measure D and Proposition 90.

“We are receiving eight different programs, totaling approximately 15 hours of original, non-partisan programming,” Hap Freund, Executive Director of The Santa Barbara Channels explained. “The programs are being developed by the League of Women Voters, the Citizens Planning Foundation, the Santa Barbara Area Council of PTAs and the Rotary Club. We are thrilled to be able to provide such a valuable public service to our community and grateful to these organizations for sharing this with our viewers.”

The programs will air often over the next few weeks prior to the November 7th election on Channel 21.

“Most of us are too busy to attend a candidate debate, are often dubious about campaign literature, and can’t glean a lot of useful information when a one hour debate is diluted to a 20 second sound bite. Let’s be truthful-- Wading through election materials is a chore. And yet most of us take our civic responsibility to be an informed voter seriously,” Freund said. “Watching these programs is a great way to get informed and decide for yourself.”

To check the playback schedule viewers should visit the Santa Barbara Channel website at www.sbchannels.tv and click on the schedule for Channel 21.

The Santa Barbara Channels is a local nonprofit corporation.
