Trevor M. Fuller, County Commissioner At Large, is serving his fourth term on the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners. In November 2012, Commissioner Fuller was elected by the people to serve as a Mecklenburg County Commissioner At Large, and he now represents the more than 1 million residents of this county. From December 2013 to December 2016, Commissioner Fuller served as Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners.
Born in Buffalo, New York, Commissioner Fuller and his family moved to Charlotte 20 years ago. Ever since then, he has served the community. Commissioner Fuller served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Mecklenburg County Bar, and for several years also served on the bar's Audit Committee and as a member of the nominating committee for the Mecklenburg Bar Foundation. Commissioner Fuller is a past president of the John S. Leary Association of Black Lawyers.
Commissioner Fuller graduated from The Nichols School, a private, college preparatory school in Buffalo, having received a full academic scholarship. He then earned his undergraduate degree in English literature from Hamilton College in upstate New York. He went on to earn his law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., in 1992.
Commissioner Fuller has been practicing law for over 28 years. He is president of The Fuller Law Firm, P.C., and specializes in employment litigation and business and commercial litigation. Commissioner Fuller is a member of the bar in North Carolina, New York, and the District of Columbia.
Commissioner Fuller previously served on the Charlotte‐Mecklenburg Citizens’ Review Board, which reviews citizens’ complaints about police behavior, he served for three years as a member of the Board of Governors of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, and he is a former member of the Board of Directors of Community Link.
While in office, Commissioner Fuller has served on the boards of the former Charlotte Chamber, the former Charlotte Regional Partnership, the Arts & Sciences Council, and Smart Start of Mecklenburg County, as a member of the Charlotte Global Vision Leadership Group, the Carolina Theatre Advisory Committee, and Central Piedmont Community College President's Council, as a delegate and executive board member of the Centralina Regional Council (formerly, the Centralina Council of Governments), and as a member of the Centralina Economic Development Commission. Commissioner Fuller also served on the Metropolitan Transit Commission, including as the Chair.
Announced in his 2014 State of the County Address, then Chairman Fuller led the effort to form the Charlotte Mecklenburg Economic Opportunity Task Force as a result of a Harvard-Cal Berkeley study ranking Charlotte as No. 50 out of the 50 largest metropolitan cities in the U.S. for lack of economic mobility. The Task Force’s report in 2017 has helped change the conversation in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County relating to economic opportunity for all.
In his 2016 State of the County Address, then Chairman Fuller proposed and led the effort to implement Universal Early Childhood Education in Mecklenburg County. In recognition of his leadership on early childhood education, Commissioner Fuller was invited to serve on the North Carolina Blue Ribbon Commission on Local Financing Options for Early Childhood Development, an initiative of the N.C. State Emerging Issues Institute. In addition, he was invited to present at the 2017 Annual Conference of the National Association of Counties, and at the Sorenson Impact Center’s Winter Innovation Summit in 2019.
Commissioner Fuller also has served in a statewide capacity on the board of directors of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners, and has served as the chair of the Legislative Goals, Tax & Finance, and Health and Human Services steering committees.
In 2018, Commissioner Fuller was awarded the M.H. “Jack” Brock Outstanding County Commissioner Award from the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners. This award “is presented annually to a commissioner who has demonstrated special achievements and efforts, primarily during the past 12 months, on behalf of county government throughout the state and/or region, not just within his or her county.” Commissioner Fuller is only the fifth commissioner from Mecklenburg County in history ever to receive this statewide honor.
Currently, Commissioner Fuller is the chair of the board’s Economic Development Committee, and a member of the Audit and the Performance Review Committees. He also has served as chair of the Intergovernmental Relations Committee. In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Commissioner Fuller led the effort to form Mecklenburg County’s COVID-19 Recovery and Renewal Task Force.
Commissioner Fuller will conclude his service on the Board of County Commissioners in December 2020.
