  • People in the Goleta community we can pay tribute to for helping others during this time, including medical professionals, grocery store workers, first responders and more
  • Uplifting images from the Goleta community that will make everyone smile

Mayor Paula Perotte said the Goleta community needs uplifting photos now more than ever.

"The #GoodLandGoodPeople photo campaign is an excellent way for us to celebrate all the good that is going on in our community during this most difficult chapter," said Perotte.
