I am extremely excited to announce today, that I am running for Mayor of my beloved City of El Monte. My neighbors and residents of this great city gave me the opportunity to serve on the city council 2 years ago. Quickly I have realized that new, bold and more inclusive leadership is needed at the head of the dais,” Ancona said. “I want my community to know that as Mayor I will NOT sell them out and will make executive decisions that place their interests first, and ensure their voices, in these chambers, matter.    -Jessica Ancona
