Greens selected as mayor and vice mayor of Fairfax, California

goddardGreen Party member Renée Goddard has been selected to serve as mayor of Fairfax, California.

Goddard, a member of the Fairfax Town Council since 2013, was appointed by the other members of the council. Fellow Green councilmember John Reed, who served as mayor previously, was selected to be vice mayor.

When she became a councilmember two years ago, Goddard said, “If government is a disgrace which makes you feel ashamed before your children, then it’s time for a change. The Green Party stands for what I stand for, and is willing to look at the larger collage of people’s needs and human rights and drive the necessary steps to accomplish the job.”
