WHY I'M RUNNING
My candidacy for County Supervisor
centers on our children and their future.
As Supervisor, I will build on my decades of experience to tackle the urgent and interconnected issues of today: poverty, housing, homelessness, drought and climate change, mental health, economic development, transportation, healthcare and public safety, while creating innovative solutions for the issues of tomorrow.
Laura has devoted her career to public service and is passionate about making our community, and our country, the best it can be for everyone. For the past five years, she’s proven to be a responsive member of the Santa Barbara School Board who has made an impact during challenging times. She was the top vote-getter in the 2020 school board election, receiving broad support from voters from Isla Vista, Goleta, Santa Barbara and Montecito.
“Laura Capps is an excellent choice for 2nd District Supervisor. She is highly qualified and strongly committed to our community, particularly our local children and youth.”

"In today's divisive climate, one of the top skills of a successful leader is the ability to listen. Laura Capps is that leader. Throughout her public service career she has consistently demonstrated the ability to lead with compassion, listening with both her ears and heart to make thoughtful decisions on behalf of the people she serves. That's just one of the reasons why I support her candidacy for County Supervisor."
