Teacher files to run for SLO City Council
April 25, 2012
Pacific Beach High School teacher Jeff Aranguena filed papers in his bid for a seat on the San Luis Obispo City Council earlier this month.
Aranguena, 29, and current council members Dan Carpenter and John Ashbaugh are each vying for one of two open seats on the council.
Raised in Mariposa, Aranguena graduated from California State University Stanislaus in 2006. He then continued his education at Cal Poly receiving a teaching credential and a masters in history.
In addition to having served as an alternate for Democratic Central Committee Chair Pat Harris, Aranguena has also sat on three different Democratic Central Committee sub committees: voter registration, endorsement, and candidate recruitment, Aranguena writes on his Facebook page.
“The last few years have been difficult years in San Luis Obispo,” Aranguena said. “I am running for City Council because I know things can be different. Together, we can change out course and begin to create a more compassionate, sensible, and sustainable community.”
