BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Son of Dolores Huerta, Emilio Huerta has officially announced that he is entering the 2020 race for Kern County Board of Supervisors- 4th Supervisorial District.

In a news release, Emilio Huerta said:

“I’ve decided to run for the Board of Supervisors because it’s time to boldly address and implement real solutions to the problems families are facing in Kern County. As a longtime resident of Kern County, I have been disappointed with the Board’s record in confronting and resolving our community’s most pressing issues. Our community simply can no longer tolerate ill-advised budgetary cuts in law enforcement, job creation, infrastructure repairs, the lack of delivery of mental health services, parks, underfunded libraries and inadequate strategies in dealing with our homeless population. My commitment to Kern voters is to be the community’s champion for positive and sensible change."
