John Savrnock
District Attorney Elect
This morning Mr. Savrnok spoke to our club about the many facets of the District Attorneys office. With a staff of over 300 employees and 50 attorneys working throughout Santa Barbara County, the office is constantly busy with new cases arriving each and every day. In addition to his work duties, John also finds time to be an active member of the Goleta Rotary Club and has served as it's President in the past. Mr, Savrnok promised our club that the next time he speaks he will bring a list of vital statistics pertaining to our city. After he spoke, John answered many questions from our audience members.
And the winners are.....
