The Santa Barbara County Chapter of the California Special Districts Association selected Craig Murray of the Carpinteria Sanitary District as its General Manager of the Year for 2013.

This prestigious award was conferred at the CSDA Annual Awards Banquet held on Nov. 22 at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott in Buellton.

In receiving the award, Murray was recognized for his leadership in executing the South Coast Beach Communities Septic to Sewer Conversion Project and other major accomplishments on behalf of the Carpinteria Sanitary District and its ratepayers.

“It is truly an honor to receive this peer recognition,” Murray said. “I am fortunate to have an incredible team that works continuously to improve the service we provide our customers.”

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!
