Juan Carrillo for State Assembly

Accomplishments

  • Champion for Equity. Immediately after being elected to the Palmdale City Council in 2016, Juan led the council’s update to its General Plan — its major blueprint for future growth — for the first time in two decades. Juan fought so all neighborhoods of the city would have the same opportunities for parks, open space, police and fire facilities, job centers, and affordable housing.
  • A Lifeline for Families Struggling During the Pandemic. Juan and the City Council aided local families who struggled during COVID, making grants of up to $5,000 available for rental assistance during the pandemic to prevent families from being evicted from their homes.
  • Small Business Assistance. Created a Microenterprise Business Assistance Program to offer $10,000 grants to help assist local small businesses that were adversely impacted by the COVID-19 local emergency.
  • Putting Local Workers First. Approved three separate Community Workforce Agreements that required local workers must be hired first for good jobs that include paid healthcare benefits and living wages.
  • New Housing Solutions. Put his professional experience as a city planner to work by streamlining the permitting of badly needed new homes that working families can afford in every neighborhood.
  • Fighting for His Community’s Fair Share. Exposed $4.5 Million in drainage fees that have been wrongly redirected away from Palmdale’s Eastside communities and led the charge to ensure they were returned to the neighborhoods that need it the most.
  • Safeguarded Funding for Street Repairs and Emergency Services. Ensured taxpayer funding for public safety services and street repair is spent in the High Desert — not by politicians from  Sacramento or Downtown L.A. — by leading Measure AV, which 60% of voters approved in 2020.
