I am Jose Caballero, I'm running for San Diego City Council District 7 because I love this city. I have lived here for 10 years now, and I see a city full of amazing people. However, we face many challenges, particularly in our economy, environment and transportation system. I am a progressive democrat that is fighting for the 99%. Together we can change those challenges into opportunities to create a stronger, more resilient city that leads the nation in tackling tough issues.
For San Diego City Council District 7
Jose Caballero For SD City Council
I was born and raised in a small town in Texas where I learned the importance of strong family values and love for my country. After high school, I was accepted into the prestigious Naval Nuclear Power School, where I became a nuclear engineer for the United States Navy. I served honorably in the Navy for six years. Four of those years I was based here in San Diego as a reactor operator for the USS Ronald Reagan. I did four deployments in the hostile waters of the Gulf, in support of operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
After leaving the Navy, I went to the exceptional San Diego State University to receive my degree in political science. During college I started getting involved in our community. For example, I have been a mentor for under-privileged youth and have organized multiple environmental cleanups across the city.
I also became politically active, to ensure progressives across this city got elected. My most recent achievement was as Campaign Manager for Kevin Beiser’s successful citywide campaign for school board. I successfully managed and executed what was required to win that citywide campaign.
