Tony Vallejo, board chairman of the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce, on Tuesday announced he will be exploring a campaign in the fall for Goleta City Council. Vallejo ends his year-long tenure as chamber chairman this week.

“I’ve had an incredible year working to represent businesses in Goleta through the Chamber of Commerce,” Vallejo said. “Now that my term as chairman is ending, I want to look for a way to continue serving my community.

“The City Council is a logical next step in service and, over the next few months, I will be exploring the idea of running in November’s election.”

Vallejo plans to file the appropriate paperwork with the Secretary of State to open an campaign bank account. He will be meeting with community leaders and building support for a potential run. An official announcement will likely come this summer.

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!
