MATTHEW QUIOCHO

Candidate Statement: I have lived in San Pedro with my family for approximately three years, after living for a number of years in Santa Barbara and having grown up in Pasadena. In March of this year my Wife and I decided to put down roots and chose San Pedro as the city in which to purchase our first ever home. Next year our oldest Son will become a Kindergartener in the San Pedro school system and we recently welcomed our newest Son into the world on Nov 1st. I love San Pedro and want to be an active participant in making San Pedro an even more wonderful place to live, work and do business.
