Frank Ferry joined the City Council in 1998. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Governmental Communications from CSUN and a Bachelors degree in Law, a Juris Doctorate and a California Teaching Credential.
Frank originally chose to run for City Council because he wanted to make improvements to the City’s infrastructure, including getting roads built and alleviating traffic problems. His experience as a teacher in the San Fernando Valley counseling gang members convinced him that he did not want similar problems in Santa Clarita.
As a Council Member, Frank would like to see more after school programs offered at every elementary school campus, as well as an adult mentor program adopted. He would also like to see more “active park space”, and eventually wants to eliminate the need for a waiting list for sports or cultural activities by developing new locations as well as improving current locations.
His overall goal as Council Member is to work to improve roads and traffic. In the future, he would also like to see the City’s Mayor be an elected official who is in office for two years. He feels that changing the Mayor after a one-year period leads to a drastic change for the community and does not represent the people as well as a Mayor elected by the community.
