Santa Barbara Voters reject oil drilling on coast

ELECTION COMMENTS: THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!

6/9/2010--The election results of Tuesday night were particularly gratifying for EDC.

First, and foremost, we salute the citizens of Carpinteria for an overwhelming 70% denial of Measure J, a proposed end-run around the City Council for Venoco's Paredon project. All of the legal and procedural protections we depend on to assure environmental protection would be of little value if oil companies can simply purchase an exemption at the ballot box.
