Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce to Hold Second Annual Legislative Summit

Business leaders and elected officials will gather Aug. 9 at Bacara Resort & Spa

The Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the Second Annual Legislative Summit on Aug. 9 presented by Bacara Resort & Spa and MarBorg Industries.

The event will be held at Bacara Resort & Spa, 8301 Hollister Ave. in Goleta. The program will be from 3 to 4:30 p.m., followed by a Wine & Cheese Networking Reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. The presentation will feature a panel, moderated by Keith Woods, with elected officials including:

» Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara

» Assemblyman Das Williams, D-Santa Barbara

» Santa Barbara County Second District Supervisor Janet Wolf

» Goleta Mayor Ed Easton

» Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider

This is the only event on the South Coast to provide the business community with an opportunity to hear from regional elected officials on legislative matters that most affect the business climate. Elected officials will be asked to speak about municipal bankruptcies, unfunded liabilities and pension reform, the state budget and how they can work together to provide the business community with a unified set of goals and objectives.

The reception will be a chance to connect with the panelists, as well as many other elected officials, dignitaries, candidates for office and government administration officials — all in the beautiful Directors’ Lounge at Bacara.

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!
