Faith Family Freedom
‘As a resident of Home Gardens, in Riverside County for five decades, I am running for the Assembly of California in the 58th District because Sacramento continues to fail California residents on vital issues such as Public Safety, Education, and Affordability. We need to send individuals to Sacramento who will do what is right for the constituents they are supposed to represent. I am ready to fight to save our beautiful state and the future of OUR Families!’
Leticia is a first generation Mexican-American and the youngest of six siblings who is biliterate in English and Spanish, as her parents are immigrants from Mexico. Her Dad came to the United States legally through the farm laborer (braceros) program and achieved the American Dream through his faith in God and strong work ethics; he believed that America is the Land of Opportunity and that we all have the same opportunities to determine our own future. From his love of God and our country, he instilled in her the same beliefs and values.
Leticia graduated locally from Buena Vista Vocational Educational High School and Corona College of Cosmetology in 1989. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services from University of Phoenix and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology with a dual specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling from National University.
As a dual Licensed Psychotherapist, who works in the mental health field, she has been able to see firsthand how the continued mishandling of the COVID-19 emergency powers created an increase of mental health challenges for both children and adults many who were already suffering from severe mental health to those who experienced their first mental health challenges during the extended shut downs.
California is at its breaking point. Many of OUR friends, family, and neighbors have already left the state. Our once safe communities are now filled with crime, drug use, and homelessness. Criminals are set free while law abiding citizens pay the price of the failed policies in Sacramento. I want to change that with common sense policies that will strengthen our law enforcement agencies because we all deserve to feel safe in our communities.
As a mother and grandmother, Leticia understands the current challenges California families are facing with keeping food on the table, parental rights being at risk, and higher prices at the gas pump. Leticia who is also pro-school choice and pro-parental rights wants a better future for California’s families.
Leticia is pro-Second Amendment allowing Californians to protect and defend themselves. She vehemently supports our military, which includes her brother a Marine Veteran, and two nephews one who served in the Air Force Reserves, and one who serves in the Navy to this day.
