Ricardo “Ricky” De La Fuente, a millennial and second-generation immigrant who resides in downtown Los Angeles, has announced his run under the Democratic Party, in California’s 34th Congressional District. He became the first to file for candidacy when the nomination period opened on Thursday, January 26th.

The third of five children, California native, De La Fuente learned the value of family and fighting for elements that make families strong from a very young age. He studied at the University of San Diego, and Harvard. A devout Catholic of Mexican-Persian heritage, he is fluent in eight languages and is credited with starting multiple businesses and job creation.

“I am running because I want to fight for families, the inner city, and small businesses.” “As a second-generation American, I have experienced the struggle of discrimination, and I want to champion all of our community. My family has a long history of working between Mexico and the United States to create jobs. I want to bring that experience to support our communities’ small business, support families, stand up for our citizens against President Trump’s bad policies but work with his administration when it benefits the District."
