Salud Carbajal officially new supes chair
Third District Supervisor Brooks Firestone gave a farewell speech and 1st District Supervisor Salud Carbajal took his seat as the new chair of the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors Dec. 8.
“Financial considerations are going to be our driving force for the next year and some things are going to be very difficult,” Firestone said. “I think we’re prepared for that; our actions this year have defined the issue, and as well as we possibly could be, we are going into the New Year prepared to address these issues very positively. I would like to thank this board for all the good days I had here in 2007.”
Carbajal will serve as the chair of the board through 2008. The board chair is revolving and changing every year.
Fifth District Supervisor Joseph Centeno is scheduled to be the 2009 board chair.
Firestone has been exemplary in how we should conduct ourselves as chair and has been a great role model for this board, Carbajal said.
