When I, Rudy Ramirez, was first elected to the City Council in 2006, I pledged to stay connected to the community in order to better understand and address its needs. On my first day in office, I created “Public Office Hours” Every month on the first Monday of the month at 6PM I held a public meeting somewhere in Chula Vista. I held over 100 public meeting in my eight years as a councilman and I pledge to do the same again if elected.

Rudy Ramirez believes that elected officials need to be on the ground, in the community listening and responding to neighborhood problems. These meetings are one good way to stay grounded.
