The following is an excerpt from a work-in-progress called The Town I Live In.
Fullerton is changing in very exciting ways. We have a Latina mayor. The Downtown Art Walk is about to celebrate its two-year anniversary. The Fox Theater is actually being renovated in noticeable ways. There's a new comic book store in Fullerton, a new independent coffee shop, lots of new things. Elections coming up this year, and a new generation of young voters who are way more politically involved and aware than any young generation of recent memory. A new spirit of creativity and real community and change. I am legitimately excited about the present and the future of Fullerton.
