San Diego is at a crossroads. We need a leader who understands we can do better. A leader who is willing to fight for democracy, small businesses, and the safety of its citizens. Someone who believes in the American Dream and wants to give you the tools and freedom to achieve your full potential. As a small business owner Fernando understands the risks and rewards of turning an idea into reality. San Diego is currently governed by politicians who care more about their political party rather than the people of San Diego. Join Fernando in making San Diego live up to its motto as “Americas Finest City”.
