Acquanetta Warren, Fontana City Council incumbent

As I look at the bottle of water on my desk with the “Healthy Fontana” logo on it and listing of all of the Walking Clubs established to promote health benefits of walking and exercising throughout the City of Fontana I’m proud to be a Councilmember for the City of Fontana. I want to be returned to continue my service to the citizens of Fontana. I have worked hard to “Bring Fontana Together” and I’m not done.
I have supported programming that creates healthy lifestyles but fiscal responsibility too. We have a healthy reserve despite the economic downturn of our nation. We continue to attract sales tax producers that will produce businesses and jobs. One of our biggest challenges has started to be realized with the planning and implementation of ways to eliminate traffic congestion. Not only for the City of Fontana but by participating with other cities in our region we are coming closer to construction of the various interchanges we need to move our traffic.
Public Safety is still the priority in our city with the addition of 65 officers, the establishment of the Fontana Fire Protection District for fire services with San Bernardino County and added citywide paramedic coverage. Our outreach to provide servicing doesn’t stop there. We have re-opened the Fontana Teen Center and established after school programming for our youth and children thru the Smart Kids Program with Fontana Unified School District and the Boys and Girls Club of Fontana. We funded and built community centers throughout our community including the new construction of the Jessie Turner Health and Fitness Center scheduled to be showcased at the opening of our new Fontana Park in late October.
Our Civic Center is now the showcase of the Inland Empire with our newly constructed Lewis Library an Technology Center, Center Stage and Downtown Pacific Electric Trail. I had the honor of mobilizing our community to name the Children’s Section of the library after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. where we give each child a bookmark with the non-violence pledge to learn. This effort has made me realize the importance of my election to continue to work toward eliminating violence in our community. We still have our youth dropping out of school and we need to continue to build a better future for the families of Fontana and I will continue when elected to serve those needs.
