Mayor Belén Bernal has served the City of South Gate as City Treasurer for six years, and as Councilmember for five years. During her five years on the Council she has been nominated twice by her colleagues to serve as our Mayor.
Mayor Bernal's experience and knowledge, combined with her commitment to transparency and community capacity building; have been a true asset while on the City Council. An accomplished management professional and a hardworking community leader, Mayor Bernal’s financial acumen, ethics and public service background entail the skill set and actions we can trust.
We can count on Belén to continue to create quality of life opportunities for our residents, partner with local stakeholders to protect our community's interest, and attract innovation that our children, families and businesses can enjoy and so much deserve. Keeping our community clean and safe for our children and all, is a priority for Belén. She has worked closely with City staff, Council colleagues and County agencies and others to ensure they all do their part to keep South Gate clean and safe.
"I’ve spent the last 10 years in public service. Giving back to my community is important to me. As a member of the City Council, I want to ensure that South Gate’s future is one where every person is represented as they deserve and has the access to services and information in order to thrive."- Mayor Bernal
In this upcoming election, we can vote for a servant leader who has proven that she is willing to stand up for our community and uphold an honest government! Let's support Belén Bernal and get her re-elected on or before March 3, 2020!
With new state legislation, a growing homelessness concern, aging infrastructure and a need to revitalize our downtown shopping districts, it is key to have a representative who is willing to represent the best interest of the community and has the knowledge and experience to move the agenda forward.
