Westchester-Playa Del Rey Neighborhood Council, At-Large, CA

Alfredo is a nonprofit organizer with experience in helping community stakeholders engage groups historically left out of the political conversation. He is running to be the At-Large Director for the Westchester-Playa Neighborhood Council of Los Angeles, CA.

As a candidate, his focus is on making the Neighborhood Council the ground floor for community organizing. He believes that the Neighborhood Council should be the first line of action in addressing the causes and issues he and his community care about: better resources for public schools, more green spaces and environmental protections for the wetlands, and solutions with dignity for all his unhoused neighbors. Beyond making the Neighborhood Council a force for community good, Alfredo wants to mobilize the political power of younger residents, like himself, who have been left out of the community, writ large. He believes government is best when it is diverse, and he wants to work to have the council better represent the beautiful complexity of his neighborhood.

Alfredo is a life-long Angeleno and the son of two Mexican immigrants. He has lived in Westchester-Playa for 6 years, and is a volunteer with organizations looking to alleviate the hardships associated with homelessness. When not working or volunteering, he loves talking with his neighbors as he walks his rambunctious poodle-mix, Madela.
