Mayor Susan Wiggins
Councilwoman Susan WigginsMessage from Mayor Pro-tem Wiggins
I am proud to serve as a councilwoman for the City Council. I previously served on the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District board where I worked with the city to provide more recreational opportunities. A lifelong East Kern resident, I have lived in Tehachapi for over twelve years with my husband Ed, a member of one of Tehachapi’s pioneer families.

Before moving to Tehachapi, I served on the boards of the East Kern Airport District and Mojave Unified School District, chaired the East Kern Collaborative, and now am vice chairman of the Tehachapi Collaborative.

During my service on the EKAD board, I worked with colleagues to attract and retain businesses at the Mojave Airport, and will do the same for the Tehachapi Airport.

I am retired from the Mojave Unified School District, where I served for 20 years in a variety of positions, managing transportation and maintenance, food services, categorical aid programs, budgets, crisis management, writing grants, and handling parent complaints.

Prior to that, I was a reporter and editor for the California City Enterprise and Mojave Desert News, a reporter for the Antelope Valley Press, and a correspondent for the Bakersfield Californian.

I also worked on Space Shuttles for Rockwell at its Palmdale facility and on the B-1 program at Edwards Air Force Base.

I want to maintain our small town atmosphere while allowing growth in a manner that benefits everyone in our city.
