There are currently three candidates who have applied for the one vacant board seat:
Candidate Statement: I would like to run for a board seat on the CeSPNC because I’m passionate about San Pedro and community service. I have a track record of volunteering and working in civic organizations to give back. Most recently I’ve spent almost 10 years as a member and board member of the Santa Monica Junior Chamber of Commerce growing the organization and outcomes. I’ve been looking for more ways to get involved locally so when I saw there was an opportunity to apply of an open seat I felt compelled to try! It would be an honor to serve. Thank you!
(Stakeholder Qualification: Lives within the CeSPNC boundaries)
Candidate Statement: I grew up here in San Pedro, I love that we are a city of many different cultural backgrounds, yet all share the same love and Pedro pride! I graduated from San Pedro HS in 2010, went on to attend college, then moved back a couple years ago. I noticed there are some problems within this community that need addressing. I intend to help find solutions for the rise of the Drugs and homelessness and how that has/continues to affect our youth. I also intend to increase community engagement by having more free/affordable events.
Candidate Statement: I truly believe my skills can provide value and add to the Central San Pedro Community. I am a native Spanish speaker and combine with my education and professional experience: 2 Masters, 1 in Finance and 1 in International business and 28-year working for the Automotive Industry, leading teams as Purchasing Director plus 9 year as entrepreneur investor in Michigan. This has given me the skills to support the central San Pedro community with high Hispanic population. I understand the culture and I speak their language that will allow me 1) understand their needs. 2) support the actions that best benefit the community we are port of.
I want to be proactive, understand the needs and support the actions that will help to improvement my neighborhood. Being actively involved on activities, enjoy living here and been part of the team that is making improvements in San Pedro.Be proactive, understand the needs of my community and support the actions that will help to improvement my neighborhood.
