Mayor Sylvia Munoz Schnopp
Sylvia Schnopp
Port Hueneme City Councilmember Sylvia Muñoz Schnopp was re-elected to a third, four-year term in November 2016. She has served twice as Mayor (2014-2015 and 2010-2011) and as Mayor Pro Tem (2009-2010), and also served as member of the city’s Audit Committee, Water Rate Committee and Branding Committee. Her leadership as Mayor encouraged Port Hueneme’s City Council as the first Ventura County city voting to display “In God We Trust” at City Hall November 2011. Her work alongside City Council colleagues and Assembly member Jeff Gorrell led Governor Brown to sign several state bills that ensured Hueneme Beach shoreline protection October 2013 when federal funding was inadequate in providing beach restoration and protection.

She serves on the board of directors of the California Joint Powers in Insurance Authority, the Economic Development Collaborative of Ventura County (EDC-VC), and the Ventura County Council of Government (VCOG). She previously served as an alternate member of the Gold Coast Transit District board of directors, and serves as an ambassador for the CA Strawberry Society. She served a term as a CA GOP delegate and is featured in “Living Legends”, a book published June 2013 by local Oxnard historian Jeff Maulhardt.

She owns Schnopp Consulting Group, providing general and segmented business consulting, marketing, public and external affairs strategies. Her business leadership has impacted numerous entrepreneurs, small businesses, international corporations, government and notable nonprofit organizations. Ms. Schnopp is an adjunct professor of business and accounting at Oxnard College and has produced local television programming regarding Mexico’s Cristero Revolution of the 1920’s. She is also an outreach specialist in the Central Coast area.

Ms. Schnopp was active with the Ventura County Economic Development Association (VCEDA) and the Ventura County 2005 BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) Taskforce. She was a district delegate for Congresswoman Lois Capps, 23rd District, at the 2004 Congressional Small Business Forum on Capitol Hill, received the 2005 Community Advocate Award from the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and was honored with other notable national and regional awards.

She spent eight years at AT&T Wireless Services and held a variety of regional, multi-state and national positions in marketing, public relations and external affairs, culminating as the National Director for Multi-Cultural Initiatives. Before AT&T, she was Marketing Director for United Way of Ventura County where she created and implemented the nationally-acclaimed “Day of Caring” volunteer campaign kick-off event, directed award-winning marketing campaigns, and is credited with launching the first issues-oriented donor choice program.

Ms. Schnopp earned an MBA from California Lutheran University; BS in Business Administration from Cal State University-Northridge, and Ministry Studies and Licensing from World Reaching Faith, Inc. She served on the St. John’s Regional Medical Center Community Board, The Museum of Ventura County Board of Directors and Ventura County Community Foundation’s Resource Center for Nonprofit Leadership. A published writer, guest columnist and lecturer, she is finalizing her first novel, Abandoned Angels, based on her family’s true story during Mexico’s Cristero Revolution and is a sought-after subject-matter expert. A native of Oxnard, she traces her Ventura County heritage to the early 20th Century.
