Paul Rivas interviews Margaret Connell on how cool it was to be the first Mayor of Goleta, trying to set up a Goleta Parks & Recreation commission without ever having watched the show Parks & Recreation, studying zoology at Oxford when she should have studied history or politics, meeting her game-changing ecologist husband when he was doing his PhD on barnacles, moving to Goleta and living at Storke Ranch on the current site of Harder Stadium, putting her fist in the air when she sees the City of Goleta sign on the freeway, being on the school board that almost closed Dos Pueblos High School, her extensive work with Planned Parenthood, how underrated Downtown Goleta is, campaigning, and her message to the people of Goleta.
