Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy


My name is Mateo Morelos Bedolla. I am a construction manager, former Congressional aide, organizer, and second generation Tracyite. And I am running for San Joaquin County Supervisor to create a California for the many. Our movement fights for the economic and social dignity of working people, including Improved + Expanded Medicaid/Mental Health, Housing as a Right, Tuition-free college + trade school, High-wage jobs, infrastructure, less traffic, clean water, and more.

For too long, we have allowed politicians to settle for rising rents, pricey healthcare, and underfunded education. In the wealthiest nation in the world, it shouldn't take 100 years to accomplish great things for working families—it takes political courage. It’s time we had an outside candidate challenge the real-estate backed elected officials corrupted by bribes.

I am the only candidate that rejects money from corporate PACs or lobbyists, which allows me to put the needs of working class families first. Thousands of Tracy and surrounding area residents have mobilized around our vision, and it would be an honor to have your support on March 3rd. Thank you.
