What a charming and amusing story that set a trend!
Born and raised in Wilmington, California, with 25 years of experience in local government and public advocacy he now heads up his own company Carrillo Strategies, Los Angeles based minority-owned public affairs, governmental relations, media relations, community engagement and political consulting firm.
He is active in many service organizations including board of Los Angeles .Harbor Area Cemetery District (Wilmington) with many Civil War veterans interred at the site. He is currently president of the B&GC board and “gives back” by supporting their mission with countless hours of service and sharing the joy from seeing how young lives can be changed and hope on the horizon.
As always we appreciate the fiscal sponsorship support from Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn, District 4 and our website sponsors: Renaissance Group, Steve Kleinjan (Clean San Pedro, Jim Husey (State Farm Insurance), George Van Buren & Associates (accounting services), Council District 15 and eminent sports photographer Peter Read Miller.
