While this may be his first political campaign, his family has a rich history of looking ahead to build a better future—without the overreaching involvement of government.
Anthony’s grandparents fled Cuba during Castro’s revolution. They sought the promise of the American Dream right here in California—for their family and for their children. They rolled up their sleeves, started a small business that still exists today and built a life they could be proud of.
for them, just as
been for me and my family.
Like his parents and grandparents before him, Anthony was born with an entrepreneurial spirit and a deep desire to build something from the ground up. He saw that the system was set up to keep minorities dependent on government and didn’t promote independence or self-reliance. Wanting to blaze a trail for those who would have the courage to follow, he started his first business in Los Angeles.
“Our first meal as a family in our new apartment was Hamburger Helper—without the hamburger. We just didn’t have any more than that, but we had each other and our faith. That was enough.” Despite adversity, he thrived. Because the promise of California was real, and his family and future were growing.
“I know first-hand what it’s like to have sleepless nights worrying about providing for your family. But I also know the potential that California offers. Through tenacity, hard work, faith and the entrepreneurial spirit instilled in me by my parents and their parents, I created something better in California for my family and for others.”
Today, the business he started over 20 years ago is flourishing. Over the past year, while politicians were busy closing business and choking our economy, Anthony was busy creating jobs and providing opportunities.
“Through my agency, I get to work with global brands, innovative startups and Fortune 500 companies, but some of the most meaningful work we do is with local organizations that are on the front lines battling homelessness, providing support and relief for families dealing with childhood illness and advocating for youth trapped in the foster care system.”
As your governor, Anthony will bring his entrepreneurial drive to Sacramento. Deeply rooted in faith and family, he will fight against government-as-usual politics and special interests. “I will aggressively and tirelessly work to protect your God-given freedoms and liberties, not restrict or limit them. I will leverage decades of experience to find solutions to the complex challenges we face and make sure the California of tomorrow fulfills its promise—for our families, for our children, for our future.”
