Susan Epstein has been living, working, and raising her children in Santa Barbara County for the past 18 years, and making our community a better and safer place for all of us. Susan has the proven skills and experience we need to make tough decisions that benefit all our neighbors in Santa Barbara County’s second district.

As your Supervisor, I will listen, encourage diverse and meaningful participation, ask questions, respect others, and conduct business with honesty, efficiency, and integrity.

I am honored that all my colleagues on the school board and all the superintendents I have worked closely with are supporting my campaign.

It’s been a pleasure to serve you. Please join me in working to ensure our County is fiscally sound, safe and healthy, and that we protect the unique character of our neighborhoods, our open spaces, and our coast. Thank you!

    As County Superintendent of Schools for many years I’ve had the pleasure of observing Susan Epstein and her work on the school board.  She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, she has passion, she brings special skills to the task, and most importantly she has the ability work with people on both sides of the aisle from a variety of perspectives. When you combine the knowledge, skill, passion, and experience, coupled with the ability to bring people together, I think Susan is the ideal candidate for Board of Supervisors.

    Susan has been instrumental in helping the district establish a strategic plan that puts students first, leading to steadily increasing test scores. She helped cut costs during the recession so that no permanent teaching positions were lost, and by refinancing previously issued bonds, the district was able to return $1.5 million to taxpayers.
