Councilwoman Stacy Mungo was re-elected to office in June 2018 and proudly serves the Long Beach community in which she was born and raised. In addition to chairing the Budget Oversight Committee, she is a vice-chair of both the Economic Development & Finance Committee and Federal Legislation Committee.
She is passionate and remains committed to developing policy initiatives and measures that:
- Find innovative solutions for tackling maintenance needs of our aging infrastructure;
- Promote job growth and small business success;
- Foster new opportunities for collaboration of community partners; and
- Build a bright future for all Long Beach neighbors.
She has served as a budget director with oversight of $180 million annually focused on seniors and workforce development, developed a countywide management mentoring program, acted as a liaison to more than fifty contract cities, and transformed business operations with the introduction of new performance management and accountability systems. Notably, she is also a professionally trained and duly sworn Reserve Deputy Sheriff and an instructor for procedural justice seminars among law enforcement agencies.
Councilwoman Mungo has always remained civically engaged in the Long Beach community, as a past president of her neighborhood association, and through her continual involvement with local volunteer associations and nonprofit organization chapters. While president of the El Dorado Park Neighborhood Association, she partnered with the We Love Long Beach organization to share best practices with neighborhood associations across the city. She continues to lead in various roles with nonprofits such as the American Society for Public Administration, Junior Chamber, Junior League, Rotary Club, and YMCA.
A product of the Long Beach Unified School District, her initial foray into politics occurred as a student member of the Board of Education, then leading her to Long Beach City College. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from California State University, Fullerton and a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Southern California.
In her free time, Stacy enjoys being with her family, dining out with friends at local Long Beach eateries and exercising in El Dorado Park with her husband Scott and their Rottweilers Athena and Shadow.
