Mayor Pro-Tem Jennifer Fitzgerald today announced she will be seeking re-election for a third and final term on the Fullerton City Council.
“Jennifer has demonstrated strong leadership over the past eight years as a Fullerton City Council Member and has a continued commitment to the betterment of our community,” said Gary Graves, Fullerton resident.
Jennifer Fitzgerald was elected to the Fullerton City Council in November 2012. In her first term, Jennifer played a key role in several significant accomplishments, including a $3.5 million retroactive refund of water rate overcharges, public safety reform, a substantive increase in funding to repair the cities’ aging roads and water infrastructure, and adoption of new transparency measures for public employee labor negotiations. Additionally, Jennifer oversaw the passage of a balanced budget and was a leader in the effort to reduce unfunded pension liability.
Jennifer is running for re-election to be a strong voice for Fullerton for her final tern. Not many big cities feel like small towns, but Fullerton does. She will preserve our community’s character and strengthen it for future generations.
