Jill and Victor Galvez have lived in Northwest Chula Vista for more than 26 years.
Victor graduated from Hilltop High in 1980, and their children, Tatiana and Galileo graduated from Hilltop in 2013 and 2015.
Like many multi-generational families in Northwest Chula Vista, the Galvez's made a commitment to honor our neighborhoods while contributing to their improvement. They have worked alongside many of you, volunteering in our schools and throughout the community.
Jill has served on the board of the Chula Vista Heritage Museum, San Diego Junior Theater (Chula Vista), Crossroads II, the Chula Vista Downtown Business Association Board, and the Chula Vista Historic Home Society. She volunteers with her sister-in-law Duchicela Galvez with Junior Achievement. And she proudly joins the amazing Murphy family every year as they raise money to support scholarships for our local students with the Quin Murphy Scholarship fund.
Those of us who are fortunate enough to live in Northwest Chula Vista appreciate our diversity, our friendliness, our traditions, and the families who make our community the best place on earth.
Jill Galvez fought city hall to preserve Cultural Arts, Economic Development, and Code Enforcement.
She organized a petition drive to prevent a cell tower from being installed in a residential front yard on Hilltop Drive.
Jill has helped lead every Historic Home Tour in North West Chula Vista since the original tour in 2000.
Jill has advocated for transparency in local government, school districts, reduced class sizes, fair treatment of teachers and city employees, and responsible use of our tax dollars.
Jill has helped local businesses and residents thrive and succeed in our community. She and her husband own a small local business and are proud to contribute tax revenues to our great city!
Chula Vistans recently voted for representation by district. After much community input, four city council seats were geographically designated. This means that while the four councilpeople will vote on issues important to the overall well-being of the entire city, each geographic district will vote for their own councilperson.
It is imperative that we in Northwest Chula Vista (District 2) elect a representative with the highest integrity, work ethic, and commitment to respresenting and respecting our neighborhoods and businesses. Whether you need an advocate or an answer to a question, you will be calling your District 2 representative on our city council.
Jill Galvez pledges to be an expert and a reliable source for city issues that affect you! Jill actually reads the municipal code so that she can help neighbors resolve disputes. She is now a small business owner, after a successful career in the high tech industry (IBM, AT&T, FastBlue Communications).
Finally, Jill is well-known to the people who make our District such a special place, and she will be a champion for our community.
