Kenny Slaught – Examines Santa Barbara’s Thriving Community

The Investec CEO believes strong heritage, a prosperous small business sector, and dedicated nonprofit organizations play essential roles in creating the city’s unique, proactive communities.

SANTA BARBARA, CA - February 8, 2017 /MarketersMedia/ —

Established property expert and business strategist known for his insightful industry forecasts in-depthl market analyses, Kenny Slaught examines Santa Barbara’s robust, diverse neighborhoods and shares his views on startup opportunities along with responsible citizenry on his blog at KennySlaughtNews.com. The Investec CEO believes strong heritage, a prosperous small business sector, and dedicated nonprofit organizations play essential roles in creating the city’s unique, proactive communities.

As early as 1925, Santa Barbara city planners, recognizing the natural charm of Southern California, developed legislation to preserve Spanish Colonial architecture, and the city became the first populace in the United States to consider the importance of historical buildings. The County Courthouse, the most common downtown destination for visiting tourists, is adorned with brilliantly colored tiles and murals that display striking scenes from the city’s past. A church that has been operating for over 200 years, The Old Mission, also known as the “Queen of Missions,” provides an amazing view into the formation of the New World through guided tours and an expansive museum.

Aside from a sought after tourist destination, Santa Barbara has presently become a center for young and developing businesses, said Kenny Slaught. Dozens of promising, new companies have been founded in recent years, and many, including AppScale, LastLine, TrackR, and Salty Girl Seafood, have come directly out of the University of California Santa Barbara. With over $200 million raised for area startups from private investors in the last year, the Central Coast boasts nearly twice the investment per capita in innovation than the greater Los Angeles area, a much larger market. While some may feel the tempting pull of Silicon Valley or Hollywood, local entrepreneurs recognize the significance of building a business in an environment that promotes growth. As a result, the region is one of the best places in the country to launch and cultivate startups, spawning remarkable biotech, medical, technology, and scientific businesses like Inogen, Raytheon, Sonos, and BioIQ.

The third pillar of Santa Barbara’s exceptional community is a widespread commitment to philanthropy by the county’s civic leaders, business professionals, and residents. The city’s deep tradition of nonprofit activity and generous giving is seen today through numerous charities, volunteer organizations and community initiatives, and dates back to 1928 with the creation of the Santa Barbara Foundation. Active local nonprofits eliminate the need for public officials to seek assistance from national foundations, and allow for immediate attention to be given to the needs of the community.

Kenny Slaught is a strategic investor, entrepreneur, and the Founder & President of Investec Real Estate Companies. Founded in 1983, Slaught has grown the business into the leading property development and management firm in Santa Barbara County through the acquisition of over three million feet of coastal California apartment, office, retail, and self-storage space. In addition to his business endeavors, Slaught is a passionate philanthropist and active supporter of nonprofits throughout the Southern California region.

Trump directs government to revamp care for kidney disease

Jul 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing the government to revamp the nation's care for kidney disease so that more people whose kidneys fail have a chance at early transplants and home dialysis. Trump said his order was intended to increase the supply of donated kidneys, make it easier for patients to undergo dialysis in the comfort of their own homes and prioritize the development of an artificial kidney. "It's truly an exciting day for advancing kidney health in our country," Trump said Wednesday. The changes won't happen overnight — some of the initiatives will require new...

Biden earned more than $15 million after leaving White House

Jul 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, took in more than $15 million since leaving the Obama White House, according to newly released documents, catapulting the Democratic presidential candidate into millionaire status and denting the working-class aura he's developed over decades. Long fond of describing himself as "Middle Class Joe" while he took in little more than his government salary, the former vice president stressed his working-class roots from the very beginning of his bid for his party's 2020 presidential nomination . But federal tax returns and a financial disclosure released Tuesday show that since Biden left public office,...

What to do when back to school bites you in the budget

Jul 18, 2019

It might seem like you've been saving for back to school since you packed your children's backpacks last fall. But after replacing worn-out erasers, outgrown clothes and an outdated laptop, you may still feel the financial pinch. And then there are items for which you didn't budget. Maybe it's a budding interest in a travel sport, a fundraiser, or birthday cupcakes. "Parents think they're going to get a bonus because day care is gone," says Court Creeden, a North Carolina-based financial adviser whose practice focuses on parents. "They quickly realize that all the expenses that come from school add up."...

AP-NORC Poll: Many feeling vulnerable despite economic gains

Jul 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — Americans are generally satisfied with their personal finances, but many lack confidence in their ability to afford retirement, an emergency expense or even their daily living costs. Roughly two-thirds, 67%, describe their financial situation as generally good, up slightly from 62% who said so at the start of the year, according to a survey by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Their brighter economic outlook reflects in part a decade-long U.S. economic expansion that is now the longest on record. The expansion has slashed unemployment, revived the housing market and boosted overall household wealth. But some...

Show of hands on immigrant health care belies a thorny issue

Jul 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — In one unanimous show of hands, Democratic presidential candidates moved the idea of full health insurance for people who are not legally in the United States into the political mainstream. That debate night moment last week symbolized the party's move to the left heading a primary in which most candidates are trying to appeal to the progressive base. President Donald Trump immediately jumped on it to paint Democrats as extreme. Even if Democrats win the White House and both chambers of Congress, coverage for unauthorized immigrants would mean reversing long-standing restrictions in the government's main health insurance programs...
