“My heart flows with overwhelming gratitude for the wonderful opportunity you’ve accorded me to serve the community that I love,” Underwood-Jacobs wrote.
During her service on the Lancaster City Council, Underwood-Jacobs has been an advocate for youth and women, especially mothers.

An avid participant in the annual Mother’s Day Tea, she also celebrates the legacy of our most powerful women – our mothers. Underwood-Jacobs has been an active and visible contributor to the evolution of the City, as well, and plans to continue this charge outside of City office.

Angela brought a special light to our leadership team, and I am genuinely thankful for her commitment to service. I wish her the very best in her future endeavors and look forward to her continued involvement in the progress of our City and the Antelope Valley at-large.
