Bonaccorsi continued, “I have devoted my life to Fremont through civic and community engagement— always focusing on what is good for Fremont. In this spirit, I have pledged not to accept developer contributions for the campaign. We have real problems to solve, and this campaign is focusing on the issues by offering real, sustainable solutions.” Contributions received from developers for this election have been returned.

Councilmember David Bonaccorsi has been actively engaged in the community for more than 30 years.
