This November residents can decide if they want to vote for the next Mayor of Goleta or continue letting the City Council decide. Currently, the five-member council annually selects among themselves who will be mayor. The ballot measure will ask residents if electors should choose the mayor or if it should remain status quo. Voters will also be asked to decide if the term of mayor should be two or four years. Should the ballot measure pass, it would take effect in the November 2018 election.
