It took a half dozen rounds of voting, but the Goleta City Council finally filled an opening on the panel.
The council chose Tony Vallejo to fill the unexpected council vacancy. Vallejo is an accountant, and past board member for the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce.
He was chosen from seven applicants to fill the remainder of Ed Easton’s term in office. Easton resigned last month, because he was moving out of the city.
