Natarajan, Earn BGG Endorsement for Fremont City Council

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.

NRI, incumbent Anu Natarajan and Rakesh Sharma have filed their papers for two seats in the City Council of Fremont, California, November 7 elections

Natarajan, who has held the seat since 2004, said she decided to stand for re-election because she wants the city to develop a new vision, according to a report in the Fremont Bulletin website.

She earned a spot on the five-member council after Bob Wasserman was elected mayor, replacing former Fremont mayor Gus Morrison.

"The general plan is the most critical thing for a city to find what it wants to be," she said. "I want to provide a forum of discussion for the public to determine what the city's direction is, and the next four years will be critical to define that direction."

"The city is 50, and it's at a crossroads," she is quoted as saying. "We're looking for a new vision for the next 20 years."

With a population of over 200,000, Fremont is the fourth most populous city in the Bay Area in the US.

Its cosmopolitan population includes Indians, Chinese, Taiwanese, a large number of Afghans who came during the Taliban reign in Afghanistan and other Asian groups.Natarajan turned in her candidacy papers last Monday.
