Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Crear trabajos dentro de la comunidad

Biografía

Armando is a single dad living in Carson, CA. During a recent conversation with his sons, Armando reflected on the greatness of the U.S. economy. The more he reflected, the more he realized how much of that economic greatness has faded. Armando fears that his sons are growing up in a jobless, penniless world — and so he took action.

Armando entered the race for the 44th Congressional District in the name of everyone who has lost jobs at the hand of the U.S. economic shortcomings.

SOLUTIONS NOT PROMISES

In Congress, Armando will fight for working people in an effort to put the word “United” back in the United States of America.  Armando aims to bring back the products that used to be made in America, to fight recent trade agreements that cost U.S, jobs, to provide more high-paying jobs with benefits, to raise the minimum wage, and to guarantee equal pay for equal work.

In the 44th District, the average income is $44,000, only 60% of students graduate from high school, and only 10% graduate from college. Armando will represent those who struggle month to month to provide for their families. He believes that everyone should live equal lives. Regardless of age, income, neighborhood, ethnicity, gender, everybody should have access to a high-paying job, access to high-quality educations, and everyone should have the opportunity to live in an environment suitable for raising a family.

Armando, nicknamed Don Armando, grew up in South Central in a Mexican-American family with his mother, who immigrated from Mexico and his father, who came from Texas. Armando understands the adversity that weighs on children who grow up in underprivileged neighborhoods. His childhood is lined with memories of his parents overworking in order to fill the table with enough food to feed him and his brothers and sisters.

During his studies at Los Angeles Harbor College, Armando started his political career with a project. His professor assigned a choice of either running for public office or simply turning in a term paper. Ambitious and driven by a passion for his community, Armando ran for California State Assembly in 1978. The political bug never left him.
