Supporters of Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown are happy and relieved he's headed for another four years in office.
Sheriff Brown says he's excited for the upcoming term. He says there are a couple of key issues he wants to address: the $120 million Northern County Jail Project, and he wants to continue to emphasize public safety despite budget cuts over the years.
"It is a very touching feeling to see so many wonderful people come together and give you validation of what you're doing and say we have confidence in you, and we trust that you know what you're doing," said Brown.
Brown's opponent, Sandra Brown, works as a sergeant in his department, which he said was rough, but he plans to get back to business next week. Sandra Brown won 42.98 percent of the votes.
