My name is Stephanie Klopfenstein. I’m running for Garden Grove City Council in District 5. I was born and raised in Garden Grove. My family came to Garden Grove in the late 1800's and built a life that included farming, ranching and business. I am a 4th generation Garden Grover. My love of Garden Grove and of our town's hardworking ethic is at the heart of my personal commitment to give back to the city that showcases the ingenuity, beauty and history of our diverse city.
I am a proud wife and mother and very active in my community. I’m a Parks, Recreation and Arts Commissioner, a board member of the Garden Grove Neighborhood Association, a member of the Garden Grove Downtown Business Association, and last but not least, an active member of the CHOC Hospitals Lamp Lighter Guild.
All residents of Garden Grove should be able to feel safe in their homes, while shopping, and at their businesses. I will work closely with our Police and Fire Departments to ensure they have the personnel and resources needed to keep our city safe.
There are exciting new developments coming to our city and the taxes from these ventures should create a revenue stream that will ease our city’s budget deficit while enhancing Garden Grove's positive, business-friendly image. While embracing new developments, I want to work to highlight the history of Garden Grove and maintain its small town feel.
I will work hard to enhance the pride we all share in our town. I want your voice to be heard; I'll work hard to make that happen. Please contact me with your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would appreciate your vote and support. Thank you.
