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.
