Kyriaco, who currently serves as a member of Goleta’s Public Engagement Commission, is the former executive director of the Goleta Valley Historical Society and a longtime community volunteer.
“I’m running to keep Goleta the good land for all of us.” Kyriaco said. “I want to apply my many years of experience as a nonprofit director, community volunteer and political consultant to carefully manage future growth. I’m committed to unifying Goleta residents around a vision for a shining, sustainable city that provides for the needs of residents.”
Kyriaco ran campaigns for Santa Barbara City Council candidates in the 2000s, including two-term Councilman Roger Horton.
Kyriaco said he’s committed to carefully managed growth, protecting the environment and providing greater child-care options for employees.
“The cost of quality child care is putting a strain on too many Goleta families,” Kyriaco said. “We can partner with local employers and create innovative solutions to increase access and reduce out-of-pocket costs.”
