Dr. Eggman was elected to the Stockton City Council in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. She is the only Latino member at Stockton’s City Council – a city where Latino’s are a majority following 2010 Census data.
The reasons for her selection are Dr. Eggman’s commitment to her community beyond City Council; she serves on the Housing Ad-Hoc Committee, the Legislation/Environmental Committee, member of the California State University Stockton Center Site Authority for further development of Stockton CSU Committee, Delta Protection Commission, Mental Health Board of San Joaquin County, and she was recently elected Board President at the Stockton’s based Council for the Spanish Speaking.
“Susan’s dedication and activism to the City of Stockton and San Joaquin County is truly admirable,” stated Galgiani, “It is important that we recognize and honor women who have worked so hard for their community and the Woman of the Year celebration gives us the chance to thank role models like Susan”.
“It is an honor to serve Stockton and San Joaquin County.” explained Eggman, “I am energized by our community and embrace the chance to work on key issues such as reducing crime through strengthening our neighborhoods, increasing literacy, health and bringing and expanding job opportunities for the people of Stockton.”
Since 1987, the California Legislative Women’s Caucus designated March, Women’s History Month, to celebrate the contributions made by remarkable women in California. Annually each member of the legislature recognizes a woman in their respectful district as “Woman of the Year.”
