San Bernardino, CA
Last week, San Bernardino City Councilmember John Valdivia, announced his plan to run for mayor in 2018, against the City of San Bernardino’s incumbent mayor, Carey Davis, who has already announced his intention to seek re-election.
“San Bernardino needs new leadership with the capacity to unite our community, to engage our residents, and attract employers, investors, and resources that our community desperately seeks and deserves,” Valdivia told those in attendance when he made his intention public last week.
Valdivia grew up in San Bernardino. Other than the years he spent away at college, he has lived in the community his entire life. Valdivia has represented the city’s Third Ward since 2011.
