Barbara Harmon addressing her Supporters at her Campaign Launch

Barbara Harmon formally announced her campaign for the City Council of Arroyo Grande on Wednesday, July 9th before a crowd of supporters at the Rotary Bandstand in the Village. Long time friend, Linda Osty, introduced Barbara.

Barbara currently serves on the Architectural Review Committee, and is a member of the Bridge Street Bridge Committee, a member of the Chamber of Commerce and she recently completed the County Citizen Planning Academy. She and her husband, Marcus, are avid cyclists.

A resident of Arroyo Grande for almost 30 years, Barbara is committed to serving the residents by having an open door policy to listen to to their concerns and bring a new perspective to the City Council.

Her background is in law enforcement where she served for 23 years in the Santa Barbara County Probation Department as an Officer and later as a Supervisor. Her experience in county government includes budget proposals, strategic planning, policy development, grant implementation and oversight, process improvements, enforcement of state laws and working directly with the public.

She is running for Arroyo Grande City Council to bring a new perspective that will:

  • Promote the growth and prosperity of local businesses and promote head of household jobs.
  • Protect the City’s unique historical culture and charm and keep our City safe.
  • Question regulations and ordinances that create new fees, assessments or raise taxes.

Barbara wrapped it up by asking residents for their support and their vote in November.
