Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Help the middle class by creating jobs and making housing more affordable.
  • Continue to bring money to Fremont to upgrade roads and highways to fight out-of-town traffic.
  • Hold developers accountable and make sure city resources and schools aren’t overwhelmed by new projects

Mayor, City of Fremont — Cargo elegido (2012–current)


Meet Bill Harrison

Small Business Owner, CPA, Mayor

Bill Harrison is proud to be lifelong resident of Fremont. Bill was born in Fremont where his parents, Herb and Gerry Harrison, showed by example how to be a leader for our community. They taught him the importance of giving back, and making our city a better place for everyone to live, work, shop, build friendships, and raise a family.  

Working as a small business owner, helping his clients as a CPA, and listening to constituents as Councilmember and Mayor, Bill knows that jobs are the key to Fremont’s economy and overall well being. He’s worked closely with our community for years to keep and create jobs in Fremont because when families have secure employment, the housing market improves, our schools get better, and our neighborhoods are safer.

Bill is co-owner of Harrison Accounting Group, Inc., founded in 1948.  The firm is the oldest accounting firm in Fremont (since 1954) and still has its headquarters here while servicing clients throughout the western United States.

Bill was elected Fremont’s Mayor in 2012 and to the Fremont City Council in 2006 and in 2010. He served on the Fremont Planning Commission from 2001 to 2006. As Councilmember and Mayor, Bill’s policy decisions have always been driven by his outreach and close communication with his constituents.

He has also served on several boards and assisted non-profit organizations to further address our neighborhood concerns on issues related to children, transportation, health care, education, and economic development.

Bill currently serves on the U.S. Conference of Mayor’s Technology & Innovation Task Force, the Advanced Manufacturing Task Force, and the Transportation & Communications Committee. He was also recently appointed as Vice Chair of the Alameda Country Transportation Commission. Additionally, he’s on the Silicon Valley Talent Partnership’s Senior Advisory Board. Despite his busy schedule, Bill always lends a hand where he can, and has a long history in the nonprofit sector.

He has also served as President and Treasurer of the Board of Directors of Kidango (formerly Tri-Cities Children’s Centers), President and Treasurer of the Board of Directors of the Children’s Fund of the Bay Area, as a member of the Centerville & City of Fremont Combined Project Area Committee, and as Director and Community Service Chair for the Fremont Kiwanis Club.  Continuing his passion towards charities, Bill has worked with Raquel’s Kids, Boldy Me and the Washington Hospital Foundation. Bill is also a former member of the Alameda County Assessment Appeals Board and is currently the Treasurer of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars program.

Bill’s interest in community service began while attending Ohlone Community College in Fremont.  As a student, he interned in Congressman Don Edward’s Washington, D.C. office and Assemblymember Delaine Eastin’s District Office.

Bill is a product of Fremont public schools, attending Glenmoor Elementary, Centerville Junior High, Washington High School, and Ohlone College. Bill went on to complete his Bachelor of Arts in Business Economics with a Concentration in Accounting at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Bill is happily married to his wife, Jennifer, and they are the proud parents of two boys, Bryce and Hayden.
