Jennifer Hidalgo

Modesto City Council, District 1, CA

Jennifer is a wife, mother, and longtime community advocate. She has dedicated her career to fighting for the most underserved. Everything from being a case manager for the Children’s Crisis Center- to helping our farmworkers through her position as Board Vice-Chair for the Central Valley Opportunity Center. Even now, as a representative for Senator Caballero, she continues to bring the needs of Stanislaus county to the forefront; elevating them to the state level. She is passionate about her community and is running to represent Modesto as the first Latina on the city council.

Throughout her career, Jennifer has found that by truly listening to the life experiences and input of others, that’s when we can make more equitable decisions. She believes that our community benefits when we work collaboratively, and that together, a shared and inclusive vision for Modesto can be created. In line with these core values, Jennifer also seeks to raise the voices of activists that are already doing the work of making Modesto a community that we can all be proud to call home.
