My Top 3 Priorities

  • Maintain an open door policy for all residents and businesses
  • Continue to support Senior Citizens and look for resources to improve services and quality of life
  • Remain committed to Public Safety so that the residents of Fontana can feel safe and secure



Council Member, City Of Fontana — Elected position (2012–current)


  Jesse Sandoval, a resident of the City of Fontana since 1967, was elected to the Fontana City Council in November 2012. In the years that Mr. Sandoval has lived in Fontana, he has seen the city grow from a steel-mill town into a thriving community. Jesse has a long history of community involvement. Prior to being elected, Jesse worked for the Fontana Unified School District for 20 years and is currently employed by the City of San Bernardino. 

While working at Fontana School District, Jesse developed a reputation of being an active parent and was involved in the School Site Council and various Parent Teacher Associations (PTA’s). Mr. Sandoval helped establish a PTSA at Sequoia Middle School upon learning that none had existed previously.

Jesse’s community service activities included being a Commissioner of the City of Fontana’s Park and Recreation Commission, sponsorship of the annual Veteran’s Day Essay Contest, and coaching of youth athletics. Mr. Sandoval has been active with such organizations as Southwest Little League, Fontana Pop Warner Football, Junior All-American Football, and Fontana Girls Softball.

As a City Council Member, Jesse is committed to keeping Fontana moving forward in a positive way, focusing his efforts on public safety, city programs and senior services. Jesse promises in all things to (1) have an open door policy; (2) keep an open mind; and (3) lend a listening ear to all community concerns. 

Jesse has been married for 34 years to his wife Mary and are proud to have raised their 3 children; Jesus Jr., Maria Teresa, and Maria Cecelia, in the City of Fontana.
