My name is Nanette Barragan. I am a candidate for Hermosa Beach City Council. I am seeking young energetic passionate college students who may be interested in volunteering with our community campaign. If elected to the Hermosa Beach City Council, I would add a woman's perspective to the current male dominated council.
I have the support of Latino community leaders like Justice Carlos Moreno (Ret.) and School Board Member Ray Waters. This race will not be easy and I can't do it alone. I need the help of volunteers to implement a field plan and to do voter outreach.
Like many others, I am lucky to be living the American Dream. Below is a short bio from my campaign website www.nanettebarragan.com. Please visit my website to find out how you can volunteer.
The daughter of immigrant parents, Nanette Barragan is a South Bay native. Paying her way through the University of California, Los Angeles with money earned working for a charity foundation that funded worthy nonprofits focused on the environment and education, Nanette has long shared the strong values of our community here in Hermosa Beach. Nanette began her commitment to public service when she was among a select few chosen for a White House internship, where she served in the White House Office of Public Liaison as a facilitator between the public and the President. The following year, Nanette returned to Washington D.C. to work on health policy and researched the issue of racial health disparities. While in college and immediately following her graduation, Nanette served as the executive director of a charity foundation where she was in charge of recognizing worthy nonprofits for funding consideration.
In furtherance of her pursuit of justice, Nanette sought out public service opportunities to make a difference in her community. Nanette worked directly with a California-based domestic violence clinic to provide resources and counseling for women and children impacted by abuse. Nanette earned a coveted externship with Justice Carlos Moreno at the California Supreme Court where she worked on important legal issues impacting all Californians. And as law student at the University of Southern California's Gould School of Law, Nanette obtained a prestigious internship with the United States Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California, Los Angeles office where she successfully prosecuted federal misdemeanor crimes and assisted in the organized crime and terrorism section. Last October, Nanette spent five weeks volunteering in Florida with the voter protection legal team to ensure every eligible voter was given the opportunity to vote in the presidential election. Today, Nanette Barragan is a successful business advocate and counselor at a Los Angeles law firm, where one of her specialties is employment law.
