Rain or Shine: Has Personally Knocked on 10,000 Doors in District

Second Generation Immigrant Vows to Fight for Education, Housing, Smart Immigration and Affordable Housing and DEFEND our community from President Trump

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MARCH 27, 2017 — (LOS ANGELES, CA) — For the past two months, Ricardo “Ricky” De La Fuente, a millennial and second-generation immigrant who resides in downtown Los Angeles, has waged a staggering grassroots campaign for Congress, knocking on the doors of more than 10,000 voters in California’s 34th Congressional District.

“I am running because I want to fight for education, housing, smart immigration and affordable housing and DEFEND our community from President Trump.”

He was the first to file for candidacy when the nomination period opened and has been on the streets and in neighborhoods nonstop with little to no rest.

“As a second-generation American, I have experienced the struggle of discrimination, and I want to champion all of our community. My family has a long history of working between Mexico and the United States to create jobs. I want to bring that experience to support our communities’ small business, support families, stand up for our citizens against President Trump’s bad policies but work with his administration when it benefits the District.”

The third of five children, California native, De La Fuente learned the value of family and fighting for elements that make families strong from a very young age. He studied at the University of San Diego, and Harvard. A devout Catholic of Mexican-Persian heritage, he is fluent in eight languages and is credited with starting multiple businesses and job creation.
