Chris Parlier moved to Bakersfield in 1985, for a law enforcement job with the state after honorably serving his country in the US Air Force for four years. He subsequently met and married his wife Debbie, a native of Bakersfield and they have raised their two children within Ward 7 of Bakersfield. Chris subsequently retired as a Special Agent within the California Department of Justice, Division of Law Enforcement.
Since then, Chris has started two private sector businesses, Global Protective Services (GPS), which has since been sold and C & D Amusement. Both public and community service have always been important to him and he continues to serve his community. He has been active in supporting education and youth sporting activities too, by serving as the former President and Vice President of the Ridgeview High School Athletic Boosters Club.
In November 2014, Chris was elected to the Bakersfield City Council. You can follow Chris on his Facebook @ Parlierward7 or his website @ Parlierward7.com
