Mayor's Corner

Welcome to the Fountain Valley Mayor's Corner... 

Mayor's Message


Happy New Year! Lunar New Year (also known as “Tet” with our Vietnamese American population) is right around the corner on February 1, 2022 and based on the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle. 2022 is the year of the Tiger, a symbol of strength and courage.

As Mayor, I am excited for 2022 and we have exciting projects in the works. Community Services will have four new community events including lobster and crawfish festivals. The remodeled Recreation Center and Sports Park ribbon cutting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 16, 2022. Frontier and SoFi will work with the city to install fiber optic internet which can provide higher speed internet to residents and businesses by the end of the year. Police Department is fully staffed in dispatch and sworn officers to keep our community safe. The city is implementing a new financial system to be more efficient to better serve staff and the community.

As the City of Kindness, continue to “Do Kindness, Teach Kindness, Spread Kindness, and Recognize Kindness”. We will recognize our community champions who spread kindness at City Council Meetings so send us information when someone practices  kindness like yourself, your family, your neighbor, your business, or anyone in your surroundings to and we will share and recognize all the kindness we are doing as the City of Kindness.

On January 25, 2022, the Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce hosted the State of the City luncheon at the Center of Founders Village and I had the honor of providing an overview of the City’s budget, 2021 accomplishments, and project updates. Congresswoman Michelle Steel also attended for a brief update and shared her goal in maintaining continued partnership/support with the City of Fountain Valley and the Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce. There were 80 attendees and it was a successful luncheon with food provided by Cambalache Grilll, Spoons, Silky Sullivan, Lamppost Pizza and Love at First Bite. To view the luncheon PowerPoint, click here and the video links are below.

I will continue to work hard with City staff to focus on public safety, keeping our city clean, improving our city’s efficiency with great customer service, and enhancing our community events and business partnerships to provide opportunities to gather and work together in 2022!
