The League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara announce that Christy Lozano has backed out of their hosted County Superintendent debate one day before it was scheduled to take place.

On Wednesday afternoon, the League of Women Voters released a press statement explaining that Lozano would not agree to sign the required Release Form, which spells out the protocols to “ensure a fair and civil discussion.”

The League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara has cancelled the Forum for the office of the Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools with incumbent Susan Salcido.

“Unless both candidates agree to these terms, the League cannot hold the forum, according to the League’s policies. The Forum was to have been held on Thursday, May 12 at 6 pm on Zoom,” the League stated.

According to the League, Lozano was told, “Our policies and procedures for our Candidate Forum, such as not providing the questions to be asked of each candidate in advance, and not allowing candidates to use excerpts of the recording of the Forum rather than using it in its entirety, are in accordance with national and state League of Women Voters policies and procedures.  Please be assured that all candidates who participate in our Forums are required to abide by the same policies and procedures.”

Susan Salcido, incumbent Superintendent of Schools and Lozano’s opponent, did sign the Release Forum and agreed to the League’s Forum rules.
