Hello, I am Petunia, my dad Alejandro adopted me a little over two years ago. I am a Staffordshire Bully Mix around 6 years old and I love going for walks, chasing squirrels and taking naps.
LET'S GET THINGS DONE!
My campaign is focused on getting things done because on the westside we are tired of waiting. I am ready to be the strong voice to represent everyone in our community.
Hello! My name is Alejandro, but some people call me Ale, and I am a queer Latino immigrant. I put myself through college by working multiple jobs in policy research and advocacy. Several years ago, a friend and I started a successful local consulting firm that employs dozens every year. In my community, I am known as a doer, a squeaky wheel that makes things happen.
I want to make positive change happen for the Westside. I feel that our city could do more to improve District 2. Many of my neighbors feel neglected, even forgotten. What the westside needs are SOLUTIONS, and fast. We can't waste any more time just talking about the issues. We need action. Too many are suffering. As your council member, I will get to know you and the issues you care about. My promise to you is that I will make things happen and I will listen to you because your voice is important to me.
I believe our local government is the tool for change and solutions to day-to-day problems. But if you live on the westside you know that things here don't happen very fast, or at all. We need to hold our policymakers accountable. I will work hard to hold myself and others accountable.
I can't sit on the sidelines and see how politicians praise their accomplishments. We are in this together, and because of it, I am motivated to do more, I am encouraged to show up and make a difference, I want to turn our struggles into triumphs.

NO FLUFF BUT
REAL ISSUES & ACTUAL SOLUTIONS.
CORE ISSUES AND VIEWS
I bring to the table years of networking, extensive relationship building, and the personality of a very passionate person that is ready to be engaged in civil discussion. I am bringing to the table courage, patience, and empathy to actually care.
I bring to the table a fresh, positive, and creative mindset to get things done but more importantly, I bring to the table the experiences of being raised by a struggling single mother that never gave up!
I bring with me the experiences of becoming a new American, the experiences of having to work two or three jobs to make it to the end of the month, the experiences that policy is one of the greatest tools our society created to make the lives of those struggling better. I wouldn’t be here without these experiences, and these experiences are the driving force that will inform any and every policy
decision I make.
MY TWO YEAR COMMITMENT:
- Be available and accessible to neighbors to hear their issues and concerns. I will not dismiss your frustrations and issues. I promise to actively work with the administration to solve problems.
- Create a yearly report on the issues of District 2, how they are progressing or not, what are the accomplishments and roadblocks.
While we may not agree on all things, I will always listen and take your issues seriously. The westside needs an advocate that works to improve it, I will be that advocate.
OTHER ISSUES ?
I would like to hear about the issues that concern you. My commitment is to understand you and to find solutions. Please send me a message so we can talk about them.
