Goleta Sanitary District

Board of Directors

Each of the five governing board members is elected by-district and serves a four-year term. Terms are staggered and elections are held in November of even-numbered years. Candidates must be United States citizens, at least 18 years of age, and reside within the boundaries of the Goleta Sanitary District. Election procedures and deadlines may be obtained from the Santa Barbara County Elections Division located at 4440-A Calle Real, Santa Barbara, California 93110, or download here from the Assessor's website.  The newly-formed districts are each represented by an elected Board member. The districts will be redrawn on the basis of census population numbers every 10 years. The November 2022 election is the first for the newly created districts. More information is located on the home page, https://goletasanitary.org/new-election-process.

As part of the District’s commitment to Excellence in Board Governance, in April 2018 all of the board members of the Goleta Sanitary District were awarded certificates of completion of the California Special Districts Association's three-day Special District Leadership Academy. Since that time, new board members Edward Fuller and Dean Nevins have completed their Special District Leadership Academy training.  This is one of the requirements for the District to be recognized as a District of Distinction. This honor is bestowed on districts, their boards, and executive teams for committing to transparency, having sound operating practices, completing comprehensive governance training for the entire board, and receiving certification of the general manager in administration and governance best practices. The Goleta Sanitary District earned the Certificate for Excellence in Transparency in 2017, was re-certified in December 2021, and was awarded the prestigious District of Distinction Platinum level in Fall 2018, and was re-certified in February 2022 demonstrating a comprehensive approach to excellence in district administration and governance. These awards reflect the level of commitment and dedication to proper governance and transparency at the highest levels by the District's Board and staff.
