Councilmembers and Employees Recognized for Milestone Years of Service

The City of Goleta is fortunate to have a dedicated group of Councilmembers and staff working together to ensure Goleta remains the best place to live, work and play, now and into the future. On March 2, a group of approximately 30 people were recognized for their milestone years of service to the City of Goleta. Mayor Paula Perotte had the honor of pinning those who have reached five, 10 and 15 years of service and Mayor Pro Tempore Kyle Richards passed out certificates. Among the recipients was Mayor Perotte herself who received her ten year service pin. Mayor Pro Tempore Richards and Councilmember Stuart Kasdin received their five year pins. 

Mayor Perotte said, “It’s been several years since we have had the opportunity to gather and get back to our tradition of recognizing those with milestone years of service to the City. This is important because we couldn’t do anything as a City without the great work that all of you do day in and day out to keep our City moving forward in a positive direction.”  

The City of Goleta is always looking for great people to join our team. Go to to see what career opportunities we have.  #TeamGoleta
