Democratic Party endorses Goleta Mayor, Councilmembers, and Water Board members

We are pleased to announce that at the Democratic Central Committee May 6 meeting, the Party endorsed the following candidates for Goleta Mayor, Goleta City Council, and Goleta Water Board:

Paula Perotte – Goleta Mayor
Stuart Kasdin – Goleta City Councilmember
Kyle Richards – Goleta City Councilmember
Farfallah Borah – Goleta Water District Board of Directors
Lauren Hanson – Goleta Water District Board of Directors
Bill Rosen – Goleta Water District Board of Directors

These endorsements reflect the dedication to public service that each of these incumbents has exhibited. We appreciate each candidate’s commitment and advocacy of our shared Democratic values including working towards economic, environmental and social justice.

Each of the candidates presented their achievements, concerns, hopes, and dreams for the future. We feel these candidates have earned the right to continue their work. And, in this time of uncertainty, we believe that their experience and leadership will matter greatly as the Goleta Valley – and all of us in Santa Barbara County – move forward together.

Our endorsement process is ongoing for the November 2020 election. The Santa Barbara County Democratic Party urges all people interested in running for office, to please contact our Endorsement and Resolutions Chair, Joe Pierre at . At the June 4, 2020 meeting, the Central Committee will consider endorsements for the following offices: Santa Maria City Council, Lompoc City Council, Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees, and Alan Hancock College Board of Trustees.
