Goleta Extends Filing Deadline for Council Election

Interested candidates now have until 5 p.m. Aug. 11

The City of Goleta has notified the Santa Barbara County Elections Office of the need to extend the filing deadline for the Goleta City Council election.

The new deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11.

The need for extension occurs when one or more incumbents do not file nomination papers. As of 5 p.m. Friday, Councilmen Michael Bennett and Roger Aceves had filed papers and are qualified as candidates for the Nov. 2 election. Mayor Eric Onnen did not file nomination papers.

A third candidate, Reyne Stapelmann, has filed papers and is a qualified candidate for this election. Paula Perrotte filed a Candidate Intention Statement, but as of Friday’s deadline had not filed the remaining documents necessary for nomination. She and any other interested candidates have until 5 p.m. Aug. 11 to file.

All potential candidates must be issued nomination papers by the city clerk. For more information about the election process, call the Clerk’s Office at 805.961.7505.

— Valerie Kushnerov is a public information officer for the City of Goleta.

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!
