Fernando’s Philosophy

 

Education= resources

Whittier is growing and evolving, and despite its many resources, there is an information gap between the City and its residents. For years I have advocated for educating the masses through Blogs, YouTube videos, and easily accessible website links.

The amount of educational resources that are publicly available is intimidating to many. And although the City of Whittier does its best to communicate City resources, there is much room for improvement. If I am elected to City Council you can count on more accessible educational resources on Social Media, at Community Events, & at City Hall.



Youth development

Our children are our future and despite efforts to raise up the next generation of leaders past Whittier elected officials have failed in passing the baton for Whittier Youth to lead in their local community.

Amongst after school programs, the YMCA & the Boys & Girls club, there is low retention rate of teenagers actively engaging in their community. There is no universal, easy solution to help keep our youth out of trouble but there are many mentorships, scholarships, and youth development internships that receive no applications. If I am elected I will be able to engage with our Whittier on a grander scale. My mission will be to help keep our city safe by providing more opportunities for Youth to mature in job trainings, college programs, & entrepreneurship.



revitalize Local business

Whittier will soon have a family of new of local businesses at the Groves in Whittier,and the incumbent has done nothing but talk. By collaborating with the Chamber, supporting the Uptown Association, & promotion of Whittier local business, I will serve you and the City of Whittier in better marketing our local businesses and opening doors for Whittier residents to participate in the revialization of our neighboring businesses.

Business is my cup of TEA. Growing up in Whittier I recall how the businesses in my neighborhood played a huge part in my perception of the world and who I would become: a local business owner, Veteran, & family man who loves to serve.
