HBJ Pulls Ahead in See-Saw Race, Other Races Tight in SB County

The see-saw back and forth continues between Hannah-Beth Jackson and Tony Strickland in their race for the 19th Senate District. More votes in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles Counties today bring Hannah-Beth back into the lead after Strickland enjoyed most of the day in the lead from votes he picked up in Ventura County yesterday. Are there more votes? As it is Friday evening, I do not know and would appreciate any update any of you can give our readers.

Here's another look over the last couple of days:

In other news Ed Heron has stayed ahead and actually increased his lead for the third position for the Santa Barbara School Board from 241 to 320 votes.

In Carpinteria, seven precincts have made the second position for council a tight race with Steve McWhirter only 17 votes behind:

Sara, I spoke with Parke Skelton, Jackson's strategist, who told me he expected the count in the counties to take about another week to 10 days. His comments are in an update I just posted on my blog: Nice chart!!!

If Steve McWhirter wins his race it will be a glorious day for that little beach town...or said another way; Morning in Carpinteria!

Say it ain't so, Joe? Whatsa matter? You afraid of a woman being on City Council? Does Ms. Reddington express her opinion too much for your taste? Please.

I'm not Joe, but I am a Carpinterian, and a woman at that. Ms. Reddington expresses her opinion too much for most people that have gotten a taste of her. She is rude, obnoxious, and most people that know her, don't care for her. Just watch a couple of planning commission meetings, you will know what I am talking about.
I agree we need a woman on the council, but Reddington is not the woman we need. She is like a liberal, female version of Greg Gandrud.
