Fullerton Names Meg McWade Director of Public Works

The City of Fullerton has selected Meg McWade as the new Director of Public
Works. McWade, the current Public Works Director for the City of Pomona, is slated to begin employment on February 4, 2019.

McWade has over 27 years of public service experience in local government and has been with the City of Pomona since 1994.

During her time in Pomona, McWade successfully took on and accomplished many of the challenges she will face in Fullerton, including improving road conditions, pursuing grant opportunities, enhancing infrastructure, and ensuring city facilities and parks are well maintained.

McWade holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Carroll College and a Master’s of Public Administration from California State University San Bernardino. She is a member of the Cal Poly Southern California Local Government Leadership Academy.

“Fullerton is a unique City with an active and engaged citizenry,” stated McWade. “I am excited to be joining the City’s team of professionals dedicated to shaping Fullerton’s future success.”

McWade replaces Don Hoppe, who held the position from 2004 until his retirement in October 2018. The search for a replacement began in September with the recruiting firm Ralph Andersen & Associates.
