Nearly six months after Goleta decided to hold district elections for future city council seats, the seven-member Public Engagement Commission met for the first time this week.
The newly created commission was created as part of a conditional settlement agreement between the city of Goleta and the Goleta District Elections Committee.
Out of 27 applicants, the City Council in September selected Paz and Bliss, James Kyriaco, Beth Schneider, Barbara Massey, Silvia Uribe, and Rey Ybarra from the Goleta District Elections Committee to serve on the commission.
