Experiencia

Biografía

Jonathan Mansoori is a community organizer and former teacher that is dedicated to bringing the community’s voices together and to secure better opportunities for our children.

 

Born and raised in North Orange County, Jonathan worked his way through University of California in Riverside, and later Loyola Marymount University--with the help of financial aid and student loans.

 

He began teaching middle school science upon graduation. Jonathan firmly believed that providing a quality STEM education is critical to his vision: all students are given the opportunity to receive an excellent education.

 

During his teaching, Jonathan recognized the lack of resources that were provided to ensure he could provide an excellent education for our children. He has credited that experience as crucial to finding his identity as a community organizer.

 

As a community organizer, Jonathan worked with parents and schools to gather stories about local issues. It was then he led a successful community-driven campaign to fight for more funding to make sure students could walk to school safely.

 

Throughout his life, he has been committed to public service and fighting for others, especially children and families. It’s through this commitment that he realized we are better off together.

Filosofía política

As a proud son of immigrant parents, I saw the hard work it took to raise a family and build a business in a new country. I saw my father work hard to provide for his family, and my mother instilled in us a sense of compassion and care for others. With those values, I spent the last several years as a teacher putting students from low-income communities on a path to college and opportunity. I listened and supported our parents and families on issues they cared about as a community organizer.

 

I believe that our community has too much to offer than to send businesses and recent graduates elsewhere. We are the City of Education, and have some of the brightest youth. I want to see our graduates stay in our community to build their business and give back to their city. We need to build new economic generators that attract young professionals to our area.

 

Given my passion for our communities, and after spending the first half of 2015 talking and listening to my family, friends, and community members, I decided to run for Fullerton City Council.

 

We need a leader that’s Community-driven, proactive, and accountable, which are the values that have driven my entire career. As a teacher, I incorporated families into the conversation on how to improve their child’s academics and character traits. I always asked for feedback, and welcomed parents into my classroom. I wanted to be the best teacher for my students and I knew that the most effective way was to take immediate action. I was accountable to my students, families, and colleagues, and needed to the best teacher I could be because it would impact my students’ future.

 

As an organizer, I brought organizations and unions groups that haven't worked together in decades around a unified issue we all cared about. I focused on listening rather than putting forth an agenda and empowered parents to organize around actionable issues that affected their children’s schools.

 

Over the next year, I will be knocking on doors and talking to our community members.  I look forward to having productive conversations and feedback that will further the dialogue and create fresh ideas for our city.

 

I see a Fullerton where our streets are safe, our parks are vibrant and protected, our libraries and community centers are more resourceful, and our children are given the best opportunities.

 

I’m betting on our community, and I’m counting your support.
