  • Mayor Foster Endorses Stacy Mungo

    From the Beachcomber:

    Mayor Bob Foster has officially endorsed Stacy Mungo for 5th District Council in Long Beach. Foster will leave office in July with a legacy of strong fiscal leadership in difficult times, including comprehensive pension reforms and the City's first budget surplus in a decade. It should be no surprise that he would endorse an experienced budget officer to be the next councilmember in Long Beach's 5th District. 

    In an official statement, Mayor Foster remarked, "Stacy will bring leadership and unparalleled fiscal experience to the Council. Her professional understanding as a Los Angeles County Budget Officer will help Long Beach immensely. Now more than ever, we need council members who have real experience working with complex budgets."

  • Letters: Residents add their voices on elections

    LONG BEACH REGISTER

     

    Long Beach has grown over the past few decades into one of California's most important and vibrant residential, business and trade hubs. With the departure of Councilwoman Gerry Schipske from the 5th Council District, we have an important choice to make in our upcoming city council election.

    One council candidate truly stands out as possessing the combined experience and passion to help lead our city and the council in the right direction – Stacy Mungo.

    Stacy is a Long Beach native with deep roots in the 5th district. She attended LBUSD and Long Beach City College. She earned a master's degree in public administration from USC. Stacy has worked with distinction in local as well as state government while serving our community via the YMCA of Greater Long Beach. Stacy was president of the El Dorado Park Estates Neighborhood Association for three years.

    She is currently an administrator for the County of Los Angeles, working to help our seniors and grow the local workforce while overseeing a $180 million budget. She effectively oversees major local government operations and responsibly manages taxpayer dollars. Her philosophy is simple – you can't spend more than you take in and we should always be saving for a rainy day. That's a lesson for every level of government.
