A proud and unapologetic champion of working people, Felix comes from humble roots and connects with families and communities who have often been ignored. And as the country begins to appreciate the political potential of Latino voters, it is imperative to identify and elevate the most progressive viable Latinos in politics, and a Mayor Arroyo would set a shining example for the country.

Councilmember David Alvarez is running for Mayor of San Diego. Seeking to become San Diego's first Latino mayor, he's already received endorsements from some prominent entities like the San Diego County Democratic Party, California Nurses Association, San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council, and Environmental Health & Justice Campaign. Not to mention, he's accomplished a good deal in his first-term representing District 8, such as increasing funding for libraries, a Property Value Protection Ordinance, revitalizing commercial corridors, and focusing on economic growth and development in Barrio Logan. With its growing People of Color community, San Diego is the eighth largest city in the US and second largest in California. The political potential is there, and this is why we've decided to participate in this race. Read more about David HERE.
