Mayor Paula Perotte said, “Goleta’s City Clerks team wears many hats and is essential to ensuring that our City operations run smoothly. I am continually amazed at the professionalism, dedication and flexibility demonstrated by our talented City Clerks team each day.”

Goleta’s City Clerk division is comprised of 21-year veteran Deborah Lopez, Deputy City Clerks Liana Campos and David Cutaia, and Public Records Specialist Blake Markum.

Mrs. Lopez said, “I am blessed to have such a dedicated team of professionals working with me to carry out the duties of our office. To top that off, it’s in a place as wonderful as Goleta! 

Here are just some of the City Clerks Division responsibilities:

  • The group serves as a liaison to the general public and within the municipal government.
  • The Division is also the Historian of the Records, taking care of the recorded history of the City. This includes maintaining a complete and accurate record of City Council proceedings and official City files as well as overseeing all ordinances, resolutions, proclamations, written contracts, official bonds and public records requests.
  • The Division is responsible for overseeing the City’s seven Council-appointed Boards and Commissions, and recently created a new handbook to streamline the process. The Division also oversees 11 Committees.
  • The Division serves as the election official for the City of Goleta and oversaw the process for the City’s historic move to District Elections in 2022. The Division will be responsible for the upcoming November election where for the first time, Councilmembers for District 3 and 4 will be elected.
