Goleta City Council Race Draws Experience, Determination

Noozhawk has the inside stories on Roger Aceves, Michael Bennett, Paula Perotte, Reyne Stapelmann

Four candidates are vying for three seats on the Goleta City Council in the Nov. 2 election: incumbents Roger Aceves and Michael Bennett and newcomers Paula Perotte and Reyne Stapelmann.

The three will join Council members Margaret Connell and Ed Easton, who were elected in 2008. Mayor Eric Onnen — who, along with Aceves and Bennett, was first elected in 2006 — is not seeking re-election.

Absentee ballots already have been sent to tens of thousands of voters in Santa Barbara County, and residents have until Oct. 18 to register to vote in this election.

Noozhawk talked to each of the candidates to discuss their campaigns and goals. Their profiles and Noozhawk candidate questionnaires are published below. As is Noozhawk’s custom, each set of articles is presented in alphabetical order by last name.

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!
