Hello San Bernardino,
I'm John Valdivia, And I Want To Be Your Next Mayor.
Official Announcement Video
LIVE STREAM of July 6th Announcement
After careful consideration and conversations with many city and regional leaders, it is clear San Bernardino needs a new direction.

I love San Bernardino. It’s my hometown and where my wife and I raise our 2 young children. This city is filled with a rich history, and I am hopeful, now more than ever, that no matter what tragedies or obstacles stand in our way, together we can turn this city around.

City Hall implemented some positive changes addressing challenges our city faced. But, we have also missed several opportunities to create jobs and make it safer for our families.
