Gus Morrison (born ?) is an American politician and engineer. Morrison has served as the Mayor of Fremont, California, for three different tenures: 1985 to 1989, 1994 to 2004, and 2012. On January 30, 2012, Morrison was appointed Mayor by the Fremont City Council following the death of his predecessor, the late Bob Wasserman, effective immediately. He was inaugurated into office to complete the remainder of Wasserman's unexpired term (ending in December 2012) on January 31, 2012.[2][3]

In 1994, Morrison defeated incumbent Mayor Bill Ball in a rematch of the 1989 mayoral election.[4] Morrison narrowly won with 20,811 votes to Ball's 20,376 votes.[4]

Between 2004 and 2012, Morrison worked as a political consultant.[2]
