Who is Carlos Leon?
A product of Anaheim public schools—Maxwell Elementary, Dale Junior High, and Magnolia High School—Carlos Leon grew up in the community that he is aiming to represent on the Anaheim City Council. He is running to represent District 2 because he continues to hear about the same problems today that he did when he was growing up. Carlos’ goal is to be a voice and an advocate for the District 2 community, and to focus on their unique needs.
On the Anaheim City Council, Carlos intends to bring ethics and transparency to City Hall and push for much needed resources in District 2.
Carlos has extensive experience in the private sector specializing in sales and marketing for the information management industry. He also serves as a board member for Youth Leadership America, a local nonprofit organization, and volunteers with other nonprofit organizations throughout Orange County including We Give Thanks and United Across Borders.
He holds a degree in Public Policy and Political Science from the University of California, San Diego and a minor in Business from the Rady School of Management.
Planned Parenthood provides information, resources, and procedures that may be necessary to save lives and make sure that people are healthy without them having to worry about their economic or immigrant status. This is important to me especially given the demographics of the district I hope to represent. In my community, oftentimes these services are considered taboo and this is one of the reasons why this endorsement is important to me, because it can help move us away from sexual health being stigmatized in Latino and more conservative neighborhoods and move us towards expanding available healthcare resources throughout our community.
