She supports a "living wage" ordinance.She also believes that Santa Barbara can handle more affordable and work force housing, but that it should be strategically placed.
"I see an opportunity for housing in the downtown corridor, but I also believe in preserving open space," Mrs. Channing said."I am trying to find a balance between inevitable growth and keeping neighborhoods livable."
She said she knows firsthand what can go wrong in a community because of the overdevelopment she saw while living in Orange County, before she came to Santa Barbara 20 years ago.
