T O N Y V A L L E J O H A S A H E A R T and passion for
our beautiful city rooted in the values of family, fellowship
and hard work.
Born and raised in town, Tony didn't go far to receive his

He met his wife, Sandra, while he was auditing her company and the pair married in 1998. They have two children,
Marissa and Thomas, who both grew up here.
For many years, Tony volunteered at church and his childrens' school. But he credits the
start of his volunteer career to Gil
Garcia for talking him into joining
the Hispanic Council of the Santa
Barbara Chamber, his first time
serving on a board of directors.
Today, Tony sits on nearly a dozen
boards and committees including
Knights of Columbus, Teddy Bear
Cancer Foundation, UCP Work, Bishop Diego High School,
Goleta Chamber of Commerce, Goleta Christmas Parade,
and Go Red for Women Steering Committee, just to name a
few. He is currently serving as president of the United Boys
& Girls Club of Santa Barbara County and is the incoming

president of Goleta Evening Rotary Club.
At the heart of Tony's core is service and true love for this
town he calls home.
"I like the small town feel of Goleta," says Vallejo. "I like
knowing my neighbors. Running into friends at the grocery
store. Knowing my kids are safe because I know my community."
Vallejo served on the Goleta City Council from 2014-2016
after being appointed due to a vacant seat.
Tony contributes to the spirit of Goleta in many ways. He
helped organize the very first Goleta Old Town Christmas
Parade, hauled 80 bags of trash during the first Goleta Old
Town Street Clean Up, and oversees the financials at the
Goleta Lemon Festival.
In addition to his volunteer work, Tony has served local
businesses through his CPA work advising local small business owners. He mentors aspiring CPAs, taught Catechism
to local high school youth, speaks to student entrepreneurs
at Women's Economic Ventures, and is always available to
meet his clients and mentee's needs. He has worked for a
number of local CPA firms in town before starting his own
business in 2016. This year, he will be merging his practice
with local firm Nicholson & Schwartz.
