Incumbent Councilmember Vallejo Launches Campaign to Maintain Seat

Goleta City Councilmember Tony Vallejo launched his election bid for a full term on City Council.

Vallejo filed the required paperwork with the California Secretary of State to open his account and began the running process for the November 2016 ballot.

"Since taking office in 2014, I've worked to preserve the character of our community, improved our business climate by standing up for local small business owners and stood for what makes Goleta the good land," Vallejo said. "I'm running for election to continue the work I've started and build upon successes in my first term."

Vallejo has been a Goleta resident for 13 years and currently owns his own CPA practice. He has served as past chair of Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce as well as several other nonprofit boards, including Dos Pueblos Little League, Santa Barbara Foodbank and Mental Health Association.

The November 2016 race will be Vallejo's first election in Goleta, because he was appointed to Council to fill the vacancy of Ed Easton, who resigned after moving out of the city.

Vallejo's campaign will host a formal announcement event after the Labor Day holiday.

Tony Vallejo is a CPA living in 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!
