Watsonville Youth Council

The Mayor in Our Midsts

ASR has been pleased to be joined by the Mayor for the summer. Alvaro Zamora is a recently graduated student of Pajaro Valley High School who will be attending Brown University in the Fall and is just ending his year long term as the Mayor of the Watsonville Youth City Council, and a summer working as an intern for ASR. Sworn in by retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in the fall of 2012, the Youth City Council is made up of 11 high school students throughout Watsonville who then selected Alvaro to be the mayor. As part of their duties, the council selected 3 issues to focus on, education, youth-oriented business, and public safety. It is the focus on public safety that will have particular relevance in the upcoming Youth Violence Summit.
