Juan Figueroa to Represent San Bernardino’s Third Ward

Juan Figueroa to Represent San Bernardino’s Third Ward

San Bernardino

On Tuesday, May 7th residents of the City of San Bernardino’s Third Ward placed their electoral confidence in political newcomer, Juan Figueroa. “I am profoundly grateful for the entrusted position to represent the residents of San Bernardino’s 3rd Ward,” Figueroa posted on Facebook when his election was assured. He coasted to victory over his closest competitor, Treasure Ortiz, with 68.65 percent of the vote compared to her 26.86 percent—a commanding 41.79 percentage point advantage.  Though new to politics, the lifelong San Bernardino resident grew up in the third ward he will now represent.  During the campaign Figueroa declared, “I am deeply invested in our city’s future. I want to see San Bernardino become a place of greater opportunity for our families, our youth and our small businesses.”  Figueroa is a strong supporter of San Bernardino’s newly elected Mayor, John Valdivia, who since taking office in January, has frequently been challenged by council members who appear to have remained loyal to the old regime and reluctant to align with the mayor’s new vision for the city.  Figueroa sees things differently. Early in his campaign he shared his thought about Valdivia and professed, “With the election of our new Mayor, I believe that San Bernardino is heading for positive change.” With his election to the city council on Tuesday, Figueroa is now positioned to assist the mayor in facilitating that change.  “At your doorstep, you shared your thoughts, hopes, and vision for the future of San Bernardino,” he said in an online post to voters in response to his victory on Tuesday and promised, “I will voice your directive as we move forward together. Let’s get to work.”
