I have known Memo for 15 years in his role as a leader of a local Chamber of Commerce Education and Government Affairs committees. He was one of the co-founders of the Latino Leadership Council and has a broad network of fellow leaders throughout the Peninsula. He also understands the county budget trends and our local economy.
Memo Morantes has the deepest county-wide political background. He has been a trustee of the county Board of Education for over a decade. And he has the best mix of cross-community and county-wide representation to become immediately productive on the Board of Supervisors.
To my way of thinking, he has the strongest background, and the gravitas to do a great job as our next supervisor. Memo has over 20 years of formal and informal leadership experience, all garnered while at the same time running his own business. Most critical, though, is that Memo Morantes' strongest attribute is his skill at uniting people and building successful community partnerships. He will do a very good job.
