She is the founding member of Neighbors 4 Neighborhoods and current chairwoman of the Comstock Neighborhood Council.

Fullmer was at the forefront of last fall’s Jefferson Elementary School controversy. She favored keeping Jefferson at its current east-side location because of worries about losing green space – Hart Field – increased traffic in the neighborhood and the potential for decreased property values. Fullmer is currently a member of a group, Hart Field Preservation Organization, that’s attempting to sue the district for its decision to move the school.
