Santa Barbara Council Candidate Cathy Murillo to Host Campaign Kickoff

Saturday's Fiesta-themed event will begin at 4 p.m.

The Cathy Murillo for Santa Barbara City Council campaign will host an official launch party from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, complete with Mexican food, cold drinks and good times.

The Fiesta-themed event will held at the home of Lois Hamilton, 1432 Mountain View Road on the Mesa.

The suggested donation is $50 per person.

Murillo, a Westside resident, educator, journalist and youth advocate, has qualified for the ballot (filing closes Friday) and raised $24,000 for the campaign contribution reporting period that ended June 30.

“I want to serve all the residents of Santa Barbara,” Murillo said. “There are people who have little or no representation on the City Council — working people, renters, users of public transportation and people of color. I am all those things, and I will work to make government open, understandable and accessible to all residents. I will make budget and policy decisions that benefit everyone.”

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!
