Monday, April 17, 2017


Assemblymember Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara) had the State Assembly adjourn its April 17, 2017 floor session in honor of Michael Towbes, one of Santa Barbara’s successful business executives and a civic leader who passed away in his home three days earlier at the age 87. Towbes, the cofounder of Montecito Bank & Trust, was a cornerstone of the community, active in supporting arts, education and medical research organizations with his wife, Anne Smith Towbes, through the Towbes Foundation.

"He was active in the restoration of the Granada Theatre and was involved in countless nonprofit organizations and causes,” said Assemblymember Limón.
