Richard Rojo
District 5


Elected:  November 2022

Terms Expires : November 2024

Term Length: 2 Years


As a long-term resident of El Monte and father of 3 girls, I am dedicated to the well-being and safety of our families. As an attorney for 42 years, I have the experience and training necessary to be an effective advocate for our community.  We will be electing a representative from our neighborhood for the first time, and I am asking for your vote for District 5 Councilmember. 

We must improve our city especially around Garvey.  We must make our community safer from increased gang activity and violent crimes.  We need to build more affordable housing and provide necessary services for the homeless in our city.  As a community, we need to embrace environmental policies that address climate change including planting more trees. 

The City Council must work together to address the challenges that we still face including pedestrian safety, job growth and housing affordability.   Together we can achieve our goals to improve our El Monte. I assure you that I have the drive and experience to continue to move our city forward.  I respectfully request your vote.  Thank you.
