Sigmon 'honored' to be candidate for honorary mayor

FALLBROOK – Marc Sigmon is becoming well-known in Fallbrook. A relatively new Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce member, Sigmon became an ambassador for the chamber this year. When he heard about Fallbrook's honorary mayor opportunity, Sigmon could think of no other cause he wanted to represent.

A U.S. Navy veteran, Sigmon spent 20 years in the service with tours in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Iraq. As a Charles E. Swisher Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1924 member, Sigmon volunteered for several events to benefit the VFW and is the 2016 Veterans Day parade committee chair.

“Marc is a member in good standing who always looks for opportunities to help others," said John Knott, past post commander. "He can be counted on to give an extra hand with our dinners or any event he participates in."

"I'm honored by the possibility of representing Fallbrook, the chamber, and the VFW,” said Sigmon.

Sigmon has deep family ties to military service. His grandfather was a Pearl Harbor survivor, and his uncle and stepfather served in Vietnam. Signon's family has served in every war dating back to the Civil War. Sigmon's passion to serve led to his certification as suicide interventionist and CPR instructor in the Navy.

Sigmon transformed those skills to help the community as a licensed insurance agent.

Every Thanksgiving, the VFW provides a free meal to families who may not otherwise experience a holiday meal. Every Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Veterans Day, VFW members proudly display the United States Flag on Fallbrook's streets.

Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, the public is invited to a dinner held in the VFW hall, prepared and served by volunteers in exchange for a donation to cover the event's cost.

Sigmon's first fundraiser is on July 29 at Panda Express, where 20 percent of sales will be donated to his campaign. Sigmon has a Facebook page for fundraising events and updates.
