/ Juan Mendez
Juan ran for office to represent the voice of the working class. He brings to the legislature an understanding of the value of public education and the passion of a citizen who is invested in his community. His legislative priorities include bringing sanity and purpose back to the state budget, by recognizing that private success is dependent on public investment. Juan also aims to restart the American dream of upward mobility for everyone, regardless of privilege, by restoring compassion to our health care system and through strengthening our public schools and universities.
