Political activist and resident of Fontana, Glenda Barillas, runs for Fontana City Council
Barillas will run to represent residents of District 4
(July 20, 2018) Fontana, CA – Glenda Barillas is a young, Latina professional and community organizer in Fontana with a mission to bring positive change to the city. She has empowered local youth through advocacy by working on civic engagement, social justice and environmental movements. Born and raised in Southern California, Barillas’ involvement as a leader in the Fontana community began three years ago, bringing all her life experiences to the table. She saw the impact that the lack of young voices in the local decision-making process had on her friends’ and family’s daily lives and decided that enough was enough. Barillas’ family has called Fontana home for almost 30 years and they have established strong roots and relationships with the community which has allowed Barillas to know the exact needs of the city’s residents. A current student at Chaffey College, she also works as Director of Business Development for a local organization and sits on the Executive Board of various local organizations.
“ I am really excited and honored to have the support of our community. I have talked to many residents in the district and we know that listening to the community and working with our elected officials is the only way we can continue moving forward together. My family has been here for close to three decades and we have seen this part of Fontana change. I have fond memories of my childhood summers in this city, I’ve watched my family grow, and I want everyone in the district, and throughout the city, to experience the same opportunities that we had, if not better.”- City Council Candidate Glenda Barillas
