MADERA - District 4 chief of staff, Leticia Gonzalez, has announced her candidacy for the Madera County Board of Supervisor district 4 seat. Leticia, who has served as Supervisor Max Roadriguez’ staffer for 12 years is a local community leader with deep ties to the district. A lifelong Madera County resident, Leticia credits her parents for instilling the values of hard work, integrity, and compassion in her and intends to make those qualities the centerpiece of her campaign.
“Lety knows first-hand the struggles the people of district 4 face every day,” explained Rodriguez. “Good paying jobs, safe and affordable drinking water and affordable housing remain major issues and no one understands this more than Lety.”
“We have issues in district 4 that require focused leadership, hard work and someone who is committed to getting the job done,” Gonzalez stated. “Now is not the time for on the job training. I am the only candidate running with the experience and proven work ethic to meet the challenges in this district.”
Gonzalez’ campaign will focus on being the voice for the vision and values of every resident in the 4th district. Parkwood, Parksdale and the east-side of the city of Madera including downtown, continue to struggle with homelessness, unaffordable drinking water and lack of good paying jobs. Leticia's knowledge, experience, and ability to relate to others make her uniquely qualified and a favorite for the vacancy created by Rodriguez’ retirement.
“I’m not a career politician, I have never before sought elected office, here or anywhere else,” Gonzalez explained. “However, I cannot simply sit and watch my neighbors, friends and family continue to struggle without doing something. District 4 deserves a candidate who is committed to the district and that is why I am running.”
Ms Gonzales will face former Madera Unified Trustee Ricardo Arredondo on Election day, Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
