Being Called to Serve with Candidate Lesley Briones ⚖️
We are excited to announce our Season 6 Closer, a local Latina on the Rise, a woman with ambition, the smarts to match, and a new friend. Welcome Lesley Briones, Candidate for County Commissioner Pct 4.
In this episode, we talk about her background and upbringing, the values that she learned from her mother and father, and how they've become essential as she approaches every challenge she takes on.
We talked about her years at Harvard University and how being "terca" or stubborn gave her the impetus to pursue an Ivy League education. We talk about the struggles of running for office while being a wife, a mother of two girls, a judge, a nonprofit leader, and adjunct faculty.
Our conversation ends with a commitment to encourage everyone that their vote counts, that we are the change we want to see, and no matter how much the system tries to block our access we should make it our duty to get ourselves and others out to vote by May 24!
