Update on County CEO Search


With Santa Barbara County CEO Chandra Wallar’s (above) contract expiring in October ​— ​the supervisors didn’t renew it after Wallar secretly tried and failed to win the position of Orange County CEO earlier this year ​— ​the board’s search for her replacement is in full swing. Supervisor Salud Carbajal said the board has a second set of interviews planned for Friday, 9/20. Also, County Counsel Dennis Marshall said he is retiring at the end of the year after working for the county since 2008. He didn’t have any details on the search for his successor.
