STATEMENT OF CANDIDATE FOR
Education & Qualifications:
Occupation: Assistant County Clerk-RecorderAge: 35
I am excited to announce that I am running for County Clerk-Recorder of San Benito County.
I grew up in a working-class immigrant family. My father was a carpet cleaner, who single handedly put his wife and three sons through college. My mother became the owner of a small business, and everyone pitched in on the family business growing up.
From an early age, I grew up with a set of values centered on the importance of hard work and determination. At the age of 14, I filed my first tax return from a summer working in construction.
Growing up in a working-class community and fighting to change my circumstances gives me the moral character to lead the County Clerk-Recorder-Elections Departments.
For the past ten years, I’ve served San Benito County as a Senior Deputy, Staff Analyst, and now the Assistant County Clerk-Recorder.
I hold a master’s degree in Public Administration. I’m nationally certified as an Elections Registration Administrator.
I will stand up for professionalism, integrity, and a strong commitment to access to the ballot box for the residents of San Benito County.
Thank you for your consideration.
