By: Jorge Rocha, Candidate for the 46th Congressional District
This is the first of several articles that I will be writing to introduce myself to the constituency of the California’s 46th US Congressional District.
Today, I am introducing myself to you so that you will be able to know me better as a person and about my ideas on government and politics in general.. My objective is to win your trust and your which should help me be one of the two top vote getters in the June 5 Primary Election. Such outcome will then propel me to the General Election in early November 2012. The ultimate objective is of course, to defeat Rep. Loretta Sanchez in the latter.
I, like thousands of other living in Orange County and millions of others living in the United States, was born in another country. I was born in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. At the early age of 8 years old, my family legally emigrated to the GREAT country known as The United States of America. Upon arriving from Mexico my family settled in the city of Santa Ana in the part of the city commonly known as “Barrio de Santa Anita”. While growing up I attended the public school system offered in both, the Santa Ana School District and the Garden Grove School District. I can still remember and have fond memories of all my most of my teachers from elementary school on to high school. They all really cared about my education, they all cared about me as a person, they were all supportive and I firmly believe that they wanted me to succeed in life. All my teachers were Anglo-Saxon and today I cannot thank them enough for instilling in me the desire to learn about what it takes to succeed I life.
