A new voice for Half Moon Bay City Council

Joaquin Jimenez to be first Latino immigrant on the council - Curtis Driscoll, Daily Journal, Nov 30, 2020

Joaquin Jimenez first came to Half Moon Bay as a boy with his family from Mexico, but said for years did not feel part of the community while dealing with discrimination and racism. However, as he grew up, he immersed himself in the area and gradually made a home for himself in Half Moon Bay. Jimenez’s passion for the area culminated in his recent election on Nov. 3 to the Half Moon Bay City Council, representing the city as the first Latino immigrant.

Jimenez learned English as a child, helping him communicate and work with everybody in the community. He is honored by the community’s support and promised to fight to represent everyone in Half Moon Bay, including those who have felt left out of the process in the past. He is proud of his Latino heritage and community and believes his experience and background will bring new leadership to the City Council.
