The daughter of a nurse and public school bus driver, both union members, Blanca Pacheco grew up in a working class community. Blanca understands the California Dream, because she and her family have lived it.
The values of strong work ethic, determination and building a better life for both family and community have been the driving forces behind Blanca’s life’s work of giving back.
The first-ever Latina to serve in the position, Blanca Pacheco is the Mayor of the City of Downey, the largest city in California’s 64th State Assembly District. She was first elected to the Downey City Council in 2016 and became Mayor in 2020.
On the City Council and as Mayor, Blanca Pacheco has always put people and local neighborhoods first. That’s why amid the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020, she spearheaded a moratorium on rent for both commercial as well as residential tenants to help working people stay in their homes and to assist local small businesses, preventing countless stores from closing. Right now Blanca is working with Los Angeles County to open up three additional COVID testing locations in the City of Downey to make testing more accessible for people throughout the city.

OUR UNIQUE COMMUNITIES
THE CALIFORNIA DREAM
FOR ALL OF US.
California is at a significant crossroads. After two years of this pandemic, it's clear that we need leaders in the state legislature who have a deep understanding of the many challenges that people across the newly drawn 64th Assembly District grapple with on a daily basis. While our state has navigated this reality better than others, the fact remains that we can and we must do more.
Blanca is running for the State Assembly to be a voice, an advocate on behalf of, and a fighter for, the people of the 64th Assembly District. In Sacramento, she'll stand up for working people, create more good paying middle class jobs, invest more in public schools to ensure our students receive a world class education, expand affordable housing, urgently address the climate crisis and ensure affordable and accessible healthcare for every Californian.
I AM HOPEFUL AND OPTIMISTIC ABOUT CALIFORNIA'S FUTURE,
and I know that together, we can build a stronger, fairer and more just state for all people across the 64th Assembly District.
