About Ruben, in his own words...
'I joined the Green Party because it's the only party that offers hope and belief in a different future. As an
immigrant from a Latin American family, I have witnessed firsthand how
people in power often ignore those most affected by their decisions.
I am compelled to stand up and be the voice for those who have been left
behind, not only within the Latino community but also among other ethnic
minorities. I aim to represent those who have been displaced due to
gentrification and those who have lost hope in the future as a result of
falling wages and longer working hours.'
