ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Robert

ROBRT GONZALEZ MAYOR-05419.jpg

WHERE I COME FROM

I was born and raised in the City of Azusa. I have dedicated so much of my time and life to serving this community. I love this city and I will continue to live here and raise my family here.

WHAT I'M ABOUT

For the past 15 years, I have had the privilege to serve as a member of the City Council and the past 2 years as Mayor.  I am proud of the accomplishments we have achieved together; however, there is still work to be done. I am running for re-election as Mayor to continue our efforts in delivering completed projects that will benefit our economics and our community programs while delivering good-paying jobs and safer neighborhoods.

My style in working to solve problems is through respectful, collaborative and educated efforts. I believe in a common-sense approach when it comes to leadership and that has earned me several very important endorsements. You can view my growing list of endorsements here.

I am proud of my record while serving you and would be honored to earn your vote for Mayor. Thank and God Bless You.
