Dr. Eduardo Lara for Long Beach City Council 2020
Moving Forward. Together.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I’m in! My name is Eduardo and I am running to be your next 2nd District City Council Member. I am running because too many of our neighbors are being left out of the economic prosperity that our city is experiencing. Together, we will move our district forward by focusing on affordable housing, accessible parking, a healthy environment, small-business development, public safety, youth programs, resources for our elders, and ensuring that all Long Beach workers are treated with the dignity they deserve.
I’ve called Long Beach home for over a decade; the “small town, big city” feel of the community charmed me. It was in Downtown Long Beach where I first met my husband, Gaudencio. My God-kids and I are regulars at Bixby park. Like many of you, I do yoga on the bluff and look forward to enjoying a vibrant Retro Row on Fourth Fridays. And I am connected to our beautiful coast; it is where I have trained for the charity bike ride, AIDS/LifeCycle.
Serving Long Beach is what I do daily, as professor and faculty union member at Cal State Long Beach. I am lucky to call this city and the 2nd District home. I love this community and am ready to serve YOU.
School cafeteria worker. Janitor. Carwash worker. Stay-at-home Mom. These were some of the jobs my parents had while growing up. I thrive today because the sweat of my parents’ labor translated into opportunities for me and my brothers and sister. Like many families, my immigrant parents worked hard to put food on the table and a roof over my head. And like my parents, I will work hard to raise the standard of living issues that matter most to second district residents, including our hotel and city workers.
Once elected, I will work in partnership with the community to implement my BEACH Plan:
I invite you to learn more about my BEACH Plan by visiting the platform link. Along the campaign trail, I’ve also engaged each of the neighborhoods in the district and as a career teacher for the past two decades, I know the most important quality of leadership is to listen. So, I want to hear from you.
We are building a rainbow coalition of Long Beach residents from all walks of life and abilities. LGBTQ+ and Straight. Black, White, Latinx, Native and Asian. Hotel workers, teachers, and homemakers. Youth and elders. Renters, homeowners, and the unhoused. I invite you all to join this movement.
Let’s move forward. Together.
