Community Relations Representative
As a Community Relations Representative, Angel will ensure that we are engaging our community and their priorities — from COVID-19, increasing public safety, housing homeless folks, and ensuring representation — by bridging gaps in communication, sharing resources, and representing the interests of the district at all levels of government. Angel is especially passionate about neighborhood engagement and agency. Growing up, his community showed up to help his family when his stepfather was deported to Mexico and that experience guides his dedication to service.
Angel grew up in different neighborhoods of San José such as Gardner, Midtown, and Hillview North. He attended local public schools, including River Glen Elementary/Middle School, Lincoln High School, and San José City College. After earning his degree in Politics and Education from UC Santa Cruz, Angel worked retail jobs meanwhile balancing internships and volunteer experiences.
