Local community leader and public servant will focus her campaign on families, jobs, opportunities.
Diana Perez has officially announced her candidacy for City Council Position 6. Diana has already been endorsed by former Vancouver city councilors Jack Burkman and Larry Smith. She has lived on the East side of Vancouver for 18 years.
“I want for us to create a bigger table where there is better representation of the people of Vancouver, where everyone can be included and their voice matters,” said Perez. “Through a shared vision, we can build a future with all parts of the city involved.”
Diana has served our community in a variety of roles, ranging from the local level to statewide policy decisions. Her passion for advocating for her community and empowering others, especially youth, is what drove her to become the State Director of League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).
“I believe the City of Vancouver can position itself to be a leader in supporting and building regional collaborations and partnerships that prioritize families, jobs, and opportunities,” said Perez.
Diana was appointed by Governor Jay Inslee to serve on the state’s Parks and Recreation Commission, while also serving on the Stronger Vancouver Executive Council. The council is tasked with developing a comprehensive service and funding package that will support the City’s long-term vision for serving the community.
“The City of Vancouver needs more affordable housing, better transportation, living wage jobs, and opportunities for growth,” Perez noted as issues. “Many residents want to start or grow their own business and often feel they do not have opportunities to prosper. If I’m elected, I’ll work tirelessly to change that.”
