Statement from our Chair regarding the events of 1/6

The United States will remain in deep conflict as long as there is not one set of facts that we can agree upon to debate. The dilemma of a country divided into two realities is tragic. Despite the horrifying events unfolding inside the Capital building, Joe Biden will become the next president. And those domestic terrorists must be arrested and prosecuted.

To Reverend Raphael Warnock, Jon Ossoff, LaTosha Brown, Stacey Abrams, Fair Fight and all the volunteers in Georgia and around the country – including here in Santa Barbara County – who donated, phone banked and sent post cards, congratulations! Both Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff will be the next two senators from Georgia. President-elect Joe Biden, his platform, and all of us will now have an opportunity to create lasting change and greater success for all.
