  1. Really enjoyed Mr. Barr and working on his campaign for supervisor. I guess like the rest of us older people he doesn’t like what East County is becoming. Best wishes to the Barr family.

  2. By “far Northern California” I hope he means Oregon. Steve Barr was a do nothing politician that was a suck up to Bob Taylor and a puppet for Jim Frazier. He leaves Brentwood and the Fire Board with virtually no accomplishments other than to take up a spot. He was crushed when he ran against Taylor and again when he ran against Burgis.

    Good riddance and God speed.
