Sharon Quirk-Silva is the New Mayor of Fullerton

On a 5-0 vote at tonight’s Fullerton City Council meeting, Sharon Quirk-Silva is the new mayor of Fullerton, breaking a long standing tradition of Republican city council majorities in finding ways to stiff elected Democratic Council members from holding what is largely a ceremonial title. 

The 5-0 vote reflects Quirk-Silva’s leadership in demanding answers from Fullerton’s police department and city manager in the wake of the beating death of Keyy Thomas.   Quirk-Silva has also been instrumental in raising awareness to the plight of the homeless and mentally ill in Fullerton.

We wish Mayor Quirk-Silva much success in the year ahead.
