We accomplished this victory together and I am humbled to receive the honor of being the voters choice to serve on West Sacramento City Council.
I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude for everyone’s support!
Victory is achieved on the backs of many and I deeply appreciate the overwhelming support from the firefighters and police associations, and Mayoral Candidate Joe DeAnda who put their trust in me to represent their voice, along with many labor organizations and the community volunteers who came out strong and volunteered countless hours of their time to achieve this Victory. I am grateful for everyone who endorsed my run for City Council especially our City’s elected representatives, Assembly Member Kevin McCarty, Dr. Richard Pan, Supervisor-elect Gary Sandy, and Sheriff-elect Tom Lopez, Washington Unified School Board Trustee Norma Alcala, who placed their confidence in me to work collaboratively with them.
The voters have clearly responded that they would like an independent voice who reflects their values and I am committed to fulfilling that promise.
My amazing campaign team have been my pillars of strength. Eleanor Sanchez and Duane Wilson helped me to stay strong and focused on getting our message out to the voters. Thank you Duane and for hanging in there with me.
We all worked hard, sacrificed a lot time away from our families, walked long days, and fought to the last moment because we are passionately in love with our City.
I would also like to express my appreciation to my family for their unwavering support over the years. My children, Eleanor and Elaine, my Grandson Lawrence, and my big family stood by my side and rallied me to this Victory.
Our passion and vision brought us closer together. We have a bond and trust that is stronger and will endure challenges. The people chose what they would like to see accomplished on City Council and an independent voice is vital to make sure we achieve transparency and accountability on the decision-making process.
Thank you everyone for putting your trust in me to serve you on City Council and I look forward to working with all of you!
