Ed Reece has been a highly engaged Claremont resident and business owner for over 18 years. He founded his boutique technology business out of his father’s garage.  ISN Global Enterprises, headquartered in Claremont, serves a local and international clientele, specializing in custom integrated technology efficiency platforms that have garnered a tremendous base of referrals and recognition.  Mr. Reece was awarded Claremont Business of the Year and Claremont Businessperson of the Year.  The United States Congress, California State Legislature, and County of Los Angeles have recognized his business achievements. 

True to his character of service (and a cancer-survivor), he has poured himself into serving the American Cancer Society as a California State Board Member.  The breadth of his community engagement over the past twenty years is quite extensive.  He serves as President of CPHOA, Inc., President of the Claremont Crime Prevention Coalition (CCPC), and President of the Board of Trustees for the Inland Valley Repertory Theater (IVRT), and he is currently serving as the Chairperson of the Police Commission.  Ed has successfully ushered in a new era for the commission to include a positive social media presence and accessibility.  He can often be found at a multitude of community events and neighborhood watch meetings.  Experiencing firsthand the conditions of the police station and the need to mobilize the city, he took on a significant leadership role as the Co-Chair of Partners for a Safe Claremont (Yes on SC).  The call to action in support of Measure SC is a soulful response to service and a commitment to community safety. As a councilmember, Ed has his sights on taking his passion of community service and business acumen to address a variety of issues, such as a renewed vision for homelessness, senior services, sustainability, fiscally responsible policies, community policing, and more.
