Diane is a Hanford “boomeranger”, as she was born and raised here, left for Stanford University in 1981, and after stops in Washington, D.C., Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Harris Ranch and Fresno, returned to Hanford in 2016.
She is the second member of her family to serve on the City Council, following Dan Cackler, her great-grandfather, who served a century ago.
Diane is a former member of the Westside Elementary School Board, First 5 Commission of Fresno County and California State Fair Board, where she served two years as chair.
“Serving the people of Hanford is a deep honor and huge responsibility, Sharp said recently, adding “I’m so grateful to the good people of District D, and hope to continue to earn their trust.”
She is the mother of two adult children.
