County Firefighters Endorse Aceves’ Re-Election Campaign

The Goleta councilman also has garnered the support of the Deputy Sheriffs' Association

Goleta City Councilman Roger Aceves announced Tuesday that Santa Barbara County Firefighters Local 2046 has endorsed his campaign for re-election.

The organization, which represents working men and women firefighters in the city of Goleta, joins the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association in endorsing Aceves’ campaign before the candidate filing deadline in July.

“I’m proud to have been endorsed by the two major law enforcement organizations that represent working firefighters and police officers in the city of Goleta,” Aceves said.

Aceves’ credentials with law enforcement are based in nearly 30 years in the field before he became a council member. He began his career in the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department and finished his law enforcement career at the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Aceves was elected to Goleta City Council in 2006 and served a term as mayor. Click here for more information about his campaign, please visit

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
