Singer Leaving Goleta for Poway City Manager Job

The council approves his contract and salary, with his start date set for June 2

Goleta City Manager Dan Singer will be giving his 30-day notice on Wednesday after the Poway City Council approved his employment contract and $219,950 salary at its Tuesday night meeting, while Singer was in a Goleta City Council meeting.

Singer, who has been with Goleta since 2005, is scheduled to start his new job June 2.

"I'm really pleased," he said. "It's a really nice step for me professionally. I think Goleta proved a great training ground to move to a larger city with more responsibilities and Poway's a great community with a high quality of life, so I think we'll survive pretty well with making it our community." 

Members of the Goleta City Council will discuss the replacement process during a closed session meeting next week.

Singer was Poway's top candidate during the recruitment process, and the choice became final after the contract was approved by the council. The vote was unanimous, Pomerado News reporter Steve Dreyer told Noozhawk. 

Poway is in central San Diego County and has about 48,400 residents, more than Goleta’s 30,000.

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!
