I am a 74 yrs. Senior, Retiree, 4th Generation Chicano-Hispanic, who represented the AZ Hispanic Community Forum in Phoenix (90's), and was assigned representation on the Common Cause Board. I am also a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, serving in Ecuador & Peru South America; but while working for the University of New Mexico in the early 70's I learned from my supervisor the CC was a very good organization to become involved with for political change needed in our Community. So when I had the opportunity in AZ to become involved in CC, I jumped at the opportunity. During this time I was fortunate to be nominated to serve as Chairman for 2 Yrs. Since my retirement I have been involved with AZ Democratic Party in CD-3 & LD-2, and I am the current Chairman for the Santa Cruz County Democratic Party for my 3rd. term. Our AZ Redistricting Commission heeded our proposal for our CD-3 & Ld-2 designations for both Congressional & Legislative status for which we argued to gain our County position in a positive and constructive manner. I am now actively involved in Voter registration and GOTV for SOAZ, for the past 10 yrs. of retirement.
