City Council candidates Anu Natarajan have been
chosen by the Business for Good Government Committee
of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce (BGG) to represent
the business community on the Fremont City Council.
Natarajan, who has served as councilmember for
the past two years since being appointed to Mayor
Bob Wasserman’s vacated council seat, has
quickly become a prominent and well-respected
member of the City Council. She has combined the
experience and knowledge she gained while on the
Planning Commission with her work on numerous
issues with the business community. "I am
pleased to receive the endorsement of BGG. Our
views align well on the importance of a healthy
business environment,” said Natarajan. “Working
together, I am confident we will take Fremont's
economic growth to the next level." In particular,
Natarajan’s support for the Irvington Village
Phase II Project on the former Tri-City Sporting
Goods site and the Warm Springs BART Extension
demonstrate her alignment in thinking with that
of the Fremont Chamber.
