Goleta Sanitary District Race Ramps Up

The Goleta City Council is going without an election in November, but the sewage is stewing at the city’s Sanitary District, whose board has five candidates vying for two seats; incumbent John Carter is resigning, and incumbent Jerry Smith is running for reelection. Smith is running as a slate with former boardmember Steve Majoewsky (both are electrical engineers), who was unseated after 26 years in 2012 by current Boardmember Sharon Rose. Entering the race right ahead of the filing deadline was former Goleta councilmember Ed Easton, who left the council position earlier this year after moving outside city limits. Also on the ticket are attorney Beverly Herbert and Phebe Mansur, who owns a printing company in Old Town. The five will debate on 10/8 at noon at the Glen Annie Golf Club.
