Today we interview Jaime Zepeda, community organizer, nonprofit and small business advisor, tech leader, and candidate for California State Senate District 10. He tells the amazing story of journeying to California by himself as a high school student to live the American dream, how that relates to why he is running for office, how learning to campaign during covid has presented challenges and opportunities, and what he finds fascinating about running for office for the first time.
