It is an honor to lead City Council as Mayor in 2020. The City is in a good position; however, there are many external challenges like housing requirements that we will continue to work hard to overcome and do our best to protect City resources. As stated in my Mayor’s sworn in speech I will keep the city moving forward on a level and keep improving as best we can.
As Mayor, I will encourage our community to participate and be involved. Volunteerism is what makes a community great and Fountain Valley has the right people so come out and make an impact locally. We have national organizations like Rotary and Kiwanis; Fountain Valley Community Foundation, Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce, Fountain Valley Historical Society, Center at Founders Village, Fountain Valley Recreation Center, Police Department Retired Senior Volunteer Program, Fire Inspection Reserve Seniors Task-force, and many more locally to elevate Fountain Valley. I’m proud to serve Fountain Valley and I hope you will too.
City Council and I will continue our efforts and plan for the future through the City’s Strategic Plan. Our three-year goals are:
1. Enhance economic development
2. Achieve financial stability
3. Attract, develop and retain quality staff
4. Maintain and enhance infrastructure and facilities
5. Enhance community outreach and engagement
