Almost two years in!

img_1637In 2017 was elected as the first Latina and youngest woman ever to the largest parks special district in the state, THPRD. She immeidately hit the ground running. Over the course of her campaign she was vocal about her commitment to equity, including younger voices, and the role that THPRD has in addressing community concerns. during her first year and a half in this role she is most proud of: eliminating barriers for members of our undocumented community to volunteer, opposing the barriers THPRD creates to building affordable housing in our district, advocating for childcare at board and advisory council meetings, and recruiting mothers to numerous THPRD committees and councils.

Currently Felicita is on a journey to visit all of the parks in the district, no easy feat considering there are over 100!
