Jillian Hanson-Cox is a two-term councilwoman in El Cajon who is up for re-election in November. The Republican councilwoman describes herself as "a homegrown community advocate" on her online election biography from 2008.

On Friday, FBI special agent Darrell Foxworth confirmed that the FBI executed search warrants at Hanson's El Cajon home and at her former workplace, Century Design in Kearny Mesa. Hanson-Cox worked at Century Design as a controller.

10News made several attempts to contact the councilwoman at her home but no one came to the door. 10News' media partner U-T San Diego spoke with Hanson Cox's husband, Roger, who said he was unaware of any search or investigation.

"It's an election year," he told U-T San Diego. "Maybe the dirt is starting to fly up."

Hanson-Cox was El Cajon's Citizen of the Year and has been awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the Kiwanis Club, according to her website. She has also headed up the city's Mother Goose parade.

The FBI would not comment if the councilwoman is the subject of an investigation and would not elaborate further, since the search warrants are sealed.
