Bio/Issues information

I am running for City Council to help maintain and enhance the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

For the past 14 years, I have been the Education Project Director for a large non-profit organization, managing an annual budget of over $20 million and 300 employees serving thousands of children and their families at 27 schools.  I have the knowledge and experience to establish and enforce fiscal discipline.

As a long-time Sierra Madre homeowner, I am dedicated to maintaining home values. That means, I will work towards limiting and controlling development to preserve the unique charm of Sierra Madre.

As a part-time PCC faculty member, I know the importance of strong neighborhood schools.  I will work with the PUSD to make sure our neighborhood schools receive our fair share of resources. I am endorsed by the organization representing PUSD teachers.

My civic engagement activities include serving on the City of Sierra Madre’s Community Services Commission, serving as a member on the LA Child Care Planning Committee, the PBS SoCal Advisory Committee, and other non-profit boards.

With your support, I will make certain that Sierra Madre is on the right track by working to:

Establish and enforce fiscal discipline

Limit and control development

Keep downtown an appealing and neighborhood friendly area

Work with the PUSD to improve our neighborhood schools

In addition, I will prioritize Public Safety, Neighborhood Protection, and Water issues. This includes working proactively with our police department, city employees, community members, and exploring other possible sources of funding.

I’ll work to keep Sierra Madre a beautiful, safe place where individuals, seniors and families can flourish.  I will always give priority to the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Please call me at 626-660-6294 or visit www.arizmendiforcitycouncil.com

I respectfully ask for your vote.
