Bregetta and her family are multi-generational residents of West Center City. As a child, she participated in the many programs offered at the West Center Community Center – now, the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center. These programs helped her develop the life skills that have guided her through her successful life and career. Her mother, Mercedes Fields, and Aunt Frauline Trotter, also had a huge impact on her development as a community leader.
As a child, she was a regular at the many community meetings, neighborhood socials and other community building events that were directed and led by her Mother and Aunt. They taught her how community building, community engagement and creating friendships strengthens a community.

Bregetta has experience and legacy of family community engagement, which will lead the 5th District with positive solutions while working closely and productively with other city and state governmental agencies. She committed to leading the force for positive change in the 5th District.
