“I am proud to have Congresswoman Sanchez’s support and confidence,” said Sarmiento, who presently serves as the City’s Mayor Pro Tem. “An asset to Orange County and our community, I have enjoyed working with Loretta over the last decade to secure important federal funding for a variety of law enforcement, transportation, affordable housing, and community development programs for the City of Santa Ana.”
“I am very much looking forward to continuing to work with her next year after her election to the U.S. Senate,” continued Sarmiento.
