Goleta Residents Helping in Hunt for New City Manager

Goleta residents weighed in on the search for a new city manager at Tuesday’s city council meeting. Longtime CEO, Dan Singer, left earlier this month to take the same job for Poway, near San Diego; former deputy city manager Michelle Greene is serving in the interim. Suggestions included that the manager live in the city (Singer lived in Ojai), be open to technology, and have a business background. A survey is available on the city’s website, cityofgoleta
