ICYMI: Alejandra and Gutierrez and Mike Jordan for City Council

The Santa Barbara County Democratic Party is proud to endorse Alejandra Gutierrez for City Council District 1 and Mike Jordan for City Council District 2.

Alejandra Gutierrez has worked on the Eastside her entire adult life, beginning as a college and career advisor for Santa Barbara High School. She now serves as the Executive Director of the Franklin Service Center, where she has forged partnerships to connect Eastside residents with medical care, healthy food, and a variety of other services. Gutierrez is eager to engage Eastside residents that have been historically underrepresented at City Hall. She has the endorsement of Mayor Cathy Murillo, the Santa Barbara Independent, and the Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee.

Mike Jordan is part of a family that has lived on the Mesa for five generations. A City Planning Commissioner for three terms, he has served on the Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the Santa Barbara YMCA Board of Directors. Mike is passionate about forging partnerships between businesses, nonprofits, and community groups to solve difficult problems. As a councilmember, he wants to improve the Mesa by making Cliff Drive safer, and use his experience to help revitalize our Downtown. He is endorsed by Former Mayor Hal Conklin, the Santa Barbara Independent, and the Sierra Club.
