About this Event

Come with great questions, and prepare to have an honest and engaging conversation about what it means to serve in public office. Food and drink will be available for purchase.

A native of Sterling Heights, Michigan, Jill Galvez first came to Chula Vista in 1992 to visit her husband’s mother, and immediately fell in love with the city that she has called home for more than 26 years.

Prior to serving on the City Council, Galvez served on various boards and committees. She served on the board of the Chula Vista Heritage Museum, San Diego Junior Theater (Chula Vista), Crossroads II, The Chula Vista Downtown Business Association Design Review Board, and the Chula Vista Historic Home Society where she has helped lead every historic home tour in Northwest Chula Vista since the original tour in 2000. Galvez has had a successful career working in the high tech industry for companies like IBM, AT&T and FastBlueCommunications

Galvez remains active with the Quin Murphy Foundation’s Scholarship Fund and has volunteered in our local schools for decades, teaching 10,000 Years of Chula Vista History, coaching Science Olympiad, fundraising, and Junior Achievement. She is also a founding member of the Chula Vista Paradise Fire Relief board.

As a passionate community activist, Galvez fought City Hall to preserve Cultural Arts, Economic Development and Code enforcement. She has advocated for transparency in local government, school districts and the responsible use of tax dollars. Galvez was instrumental in organizing a petition drive to prevent a cell tower being installed in a residential front yard on Hilltop Drive.
