Faith Family Freedom
As a resident of Home Gardens, in Riverside County for five decades, I am running for the Assembly of California in the 58th District because the current lawmakers in Sacramento have failed the people of California in areas of Public Safety, Education, and Affordability. We need to send people to Sacramento who will do what is right for the people they are supposed to represent and not the special interest groups. I am ready to fight to save our beautiful state and the future of OUR Families!
Leticia graduated locally from Buena Vista Vocational Educational High School in 1989. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Services degree from University of Phoenix and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology with a dual specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling from National University.
As a dual Licensed Clinical Therapist who currently works for the County of Riverside Department of Mental Health, she has been able to see firsthand how the continued mishandling of the COVID-19 emergency powers created an increase of mental health challenges for both children and adults many who were already suffering from severe mental health to those who experienced their first mental health challenges during the extended shut downs.
California is at its breaking point. Many of OUR friends, family, and neighbors have already left the state. Our once safe communities are now filled with crime, drug use, and homelessness. Criminals are set free while law abiding citizens pay the price of the failed policies in Sacramento. I want to change that because we all deserve to feel safe in our communities.
As a mother of one and grandmother of five, Leticia who is pro-life, understands the current challenges California families are facing with keeping food on the table, parental rights being at risk, and higher prices at the gas pump. Leticia who is also pro-school choice and pro-parental rights wants a better future for California’s families.
Leticia is pro-2nd Amendment allowing Californians to protect and defend themselves. She vehemently supports our military, which includes her brother a Marine Veteran, and two nephews one who served the Air Force reserves, and one who serves in the Navy to this day.
Leticia is a first generation Mexican-American and the youngest of six siblings who is bi-literate in English and Spanish, as her parents are immigrants from Mexico. Her Dad came to the United States through the farm laborer (braceros) program and achieved the American Dream through his faith in God and strong work ethics; he believed that America is the Land of Opportunity and that we all have the same abilities to determine our own future. From his love of God and our country, he instilled in her the same beliefs and values.
