Maricela Cruz, Board Member, Alisal Union School District

“Gang violence nearly took my life. I was 22 and an ex-gang member in Salinas trying to turn my life around when I met Anna Caballero. Anna Caballero saw my potential and gave me an opportunity. I began working with her as a founding member of the Strengthening Families Program at Anna’s organization, Partners for Peace. I became a certified instructor in the program, helping families reconnect and learn to talk to and support one another. For the first time, I felt like I could give something back to the community and help deal with the gang plague that had nearly taken my life. I was growing as a productive member of society. Anna noticed the “diamond in the rough”, the potential in me, and gave me an opportunity. Now I work for the Monterey County Office of Education, where today, through the Alternative Education Program, I help point at-risk kids towards college instead of gangs. I urge you to vote for Anna Caballero for State Senate. We need leaders like her who support turning lives around, not just giving up on them. Thank you, Anna.”

 

Tim McCarthy, Salinas Community Leader

I have known Anna since 1979, and was her partner in our law firm for over twenty-five years. I know her well. Anna brings a wealth of great experience to state and local government. She knows how to get things done. She is smart and savvy, and she is a bridge builder. She is principled and looks for solutions, and she knows how to “reach across the aisle” when it can lead to productive action. I know of no one who would better than Anna to represent us in the California State Senate. I urge you to join me by voting for Anna Caballero for the State Senate.
