Get to Know Your Elected Officials at Meet-n-Greet

Putting many elected officials in one room may sound tricky to some, but Hospitality Santa Barbara (formerly the Greater Santa Barbara Lodging & Restaurant Association) has been hosting such an event for more than 10 years.

“We feel it is important to introduce newly elected individuals and incumbent officials to our membership – the hospitality industry,” said Paul Bullock, HSB president and owner of The Eagle Inn.

“The hotels, tour companies and restaurant members of HSB are a huge economic driver for this city and this region.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the reception, 5-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, at Viva Modern Mexican 1114 State St., for free appetizers and a no-host bar. RSVP to: [email protected] or 979-5013.
Newly elected officials invited to appear for the meet-n-greet include:
1st District Supervisor Das Williams
3rd District Supervisor Joan Hartmann
Goleta City Council members Stuart Casdin and Kyle Richards
Carpinteria City Council members Fred Shaw and Wade Nomura
Goleta Water District Board Directors Bill Rosen, Lauren Hanson and Rick Merrifield
Montecito Water District Board Directors Floyd Wicks and Tobe Plough
Assembly Member Monique Limon
State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson
Congressman Salud Carbajal

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!
