Soto, Jaime (2016)

Councilmember Jaime Soto is serving his first term on the San Fernando City Council (March 2015-March 2019), first elected in March 2015.   He is a native of the San Fernando Valley where he has resided his entire life. He graduated from Chatsworth High School in 1991. Later he attended Los Angeles Valley College where he majored in Administration of Justice and Sociology earning an Associate of Arts Degree (A.A.) in 1996.
 

Jaime transferred to the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where he graduated earning double Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Chicano/a Studies in 1999. After being admitted to the UCLA’s Urban Planning Graduate Program in 2000 he instead took a job teaching for several years in the classroom as a Special Education Instructor at a Non Public School. While in Graduate School he also worked in Group Homes with “At Risk” and disadvantaged youth. Jaime earned his Master of Arts in Chicano/a Studies from Cal State University Northridge (CSUN) in 2004.

As a Councilmember, Jaime’s focus is to improve San Fernando by retaining its historical charm and integrating more positive business growth for all. He is also committed to improving the City’s infrastructure while maintaining close connections with the community that elected him.  As a member of the San Fernando Valley Historical Society, Soto believes that the City of San Fernando is unique and that its long historic roots in the North East San Fernando Valley make it a very important connective City.
