Goleta City Council Incumbents Face No Challengers


No candidates filed papers to challenge incumbents Roger Aceves, Michael Bennett, and Paula Perotte in their bids for reelection to the Goleta City Council in November; the deadline was 8/8. The council will meet later this month to either appoint the three or leave the decision up to voters. In June, the council appointed accountant Tony Vallejo after interviewing seven candidates to replace the seat vacated in May by Ed Easton, who moved outside city limits. Aceves and Bennett were first elected in 2006; Perotte won her spot in 2010.
