Dr. Shana Charles for
Fullerton City Council


I am running for City Council to ensure every community in Fullerton is healthy, heard and heading in the right direction.

I’m a professor at Cal State Fullerton and I live in East Fullerton – my life is here in Fullerton’s District 3. My kids are educated in our local public schools, and the college students I teach in my class are often my neighbors I see at the grocery store.

As your City Council member, I will bring my passion for and expertise in public health, my dedication to public service, and my inclusive perspective to the Council. I hope you will join our campaign and send Dr. Shana Charles to be your voice on the Fullerton City Council.

– Dr. Shana Charles


On Our City Council, I will:

...through smart & sustainable growth.

...from homeowners to renters, working parents to retired seniors, from the Craig Park to Gem District to the Arboretum.

...& local business communities to our world-class campuses.


To win this election, we need to get our positive message to voter’s mailboxes and inboxes, on the screens they watch, over their phones and at their doors.

This effort is only possible with your financial support.

Please consider contributing today.
