Delivering For the People
I’m running again for City Council to keep the focus on what working people in our neighborhoods need. Together, we’ve expanded affordable housing, reduced carbon emissions and delivered millions in funding to make our neighborhoods safer and stronger. And I’m pushing for the boldest transportation, transit and traffic reduction plan in San Diego history.
About Georgette Gómez
For The People, Not The Powerful
From Community Organizer to Council President, Georgette Gómez has dedicated her life to fighting for working people and underserved communities.
On the City Council, Georgette wrote San Diego’s Housing Action Plan to preserve and expand affordable housing, strengthened enforcement of illegal dumping to protect our clean air and water, and increased parks, street repairs and community clean-ups for safer, stronger, more beautiful neighborhoods. She’s running for City Council again to keep delivering for the people.
Georgette was elected to the San Diego City Council in 2016, representing the District 9 communities of City Heights, Kensington, Talmadge, College Area, College View Estates, Rolando, El Cerrito, Alvarado Estates, Mt. Hope, Mountain View and Southcrest. Georgette was elected by her peers to serve as San Diego City Council President and Chair of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit District in 2018. She is the first queer latina to hold the positions.
A lifelong San Diegan and first generation Mexican-American, Georgette got her start as a victims’ advocate working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Formerly a community organizer, Georgette led the Toxic Free Neighborhoods Campaign advocating for stricter laws to protect kids from lead paint and keep polluting industries out of residential neighborhoods.
Georgette and her partner Raquel Pacheco along with their two dogs, Canela and Frijolito, live in the Azalea Park community of City Heights.
