Panel: Mystery Money Group Stirs SB School Board Race -- Plus: Supes Hike Own Pay, Goleta, Covid...
Topic A on this week's edition of Newsmakers TV is the still-unfolding story of who exactly is behind a new independent expenditure committee that's spending money on behalf of two insurgent candidates in the wide-open SB school board race.
Delaney Smith and Josh Molina join Mr. Cranky Pants to dissect the latest on campaign spending reports in the contest, including the who's-on-first saga of Impact Education, a newly-formed committee that is paying for mailers and house signs on behalf of Elrawd MacLearn and Brian Campbell - who say they are unaware of whom the committee represents.
In an all-the-local-news-that-fits review of the week, the gang also breaks down the latest from the Goleta school board race, how the latest state Covid order will impact Santa Barbara County, the Board of Supervisors' 3-to-2 vote to give themselves a raise, City Hall's latest step on economic revitalization and an episode of class warfare at the Bacara.
Plus: Political rumor of the week.
