Efren is Focused On Helping South Los Angeles


My top priorities are education, the economy, and quality of life. 


Here's my plan: Let's boost academic success by increasing graduation rates and college enrollment in our district. When it comes to the economy, my goal is simple - more well-paying jobs, higher wages, and a thriving community of small businesses.


But that's not all. Safety matters, too. We need to reduce crime and violence so our parks and communities in South LA are safe for children and families.


I will also work to address inflation which has hurt South LA, big time. I'll be laser-focused on lowering the cost of living. That means reducing the prices of essentials like fuel, food, and utilities.


Together, let's make South LA an even better place to live, work, and thrive!

Thank you.
