Today the city of Goleta launched its profile as part of the ongoing
"Strong Cities | Strong State" campaign highlighting local government success
stories across California. "Strong Cities | Strong State" is a project of the League
of California Cities and the California City Management Foundation (CCMF).
"Goleta is a great place to live and work. Through the Strong Cities | Strong State
project we are able to showcase the important work that is being done here." said
Goleta Mayor Ed Easton.

The "Strong Cities | Strong State" website is the centerpiece of a campaign broadly
promoting city success stories alongside profiles of the elected officials and city
managers working together to build and maintain a high quality of life for California
Highlights of Goleta's profile include
-Capital Improvement Program
-Quality of Life
"This is another tool for the public to better understand the programs and priorities
that make our cities unique," said Goleta City Manager Dan Singer. "We are proud
of the work we do in Goleta and are pleased to be able to share our successes
through this site."
The overarching goal of the "Strong Cities" campaign is to promote the innovation
and experience of local officials in delivering vital services at a time when this
expertise is vitally needed by state leaders struggling with fundamental issues of
governance. "Strong Cities | Strong State" seeks to position cities as vital, necessary and equal partners
in building a better California.
The Strong Cities | Strong State campaign will continue profiling individual cities each day, with
a goal of highlighting all California cities over the coming year-and-a-half. Profiles include
photos, video and other media articulating how each individual city has been working to both
provide essential services, as well as elevate the quality life of its residents. Success stories will
range from public safety initiatives to educational partnerships, infrastructure improvements to
community engagement strategies and more.
