Community: Mayor Pro Tem Sarmiento among White House Policy Leaders / Vice-Alcalde Vince Sarmiento Entre Líderes en la Casa Blanca

On Friday, November 13th, Mayor Pro Tem Vince Sarmiento met with President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff and Senior Administration officials from the White House to discuss legislative priorities that will help make the American middle class stronger and underscore the importance of middle-class economics.

Sarmiento was among 27 distinguished local elected officials from throughout the United States invited to the Policy Leaders Convening in Washington, DC; he was one of four California elected officials and only one of two from Southern California. It was a tremendous opportunity for the City of Santa Ana and an honor for Mayor Pro Tem Sarmiento to be selected to represent our community at this important meeting.
