José Huizar
Councilmember, District #14 - City of Los Angeles

José Huizar was elected to the Los Angeles City Council’s 14th District in 2005 and overwhelmingly re-elected in 2007 and 2011.

Through his years of public service, Councilmember Huizar has proven himself a staunch advocate for educational reform, public safety, environmental protection and sustainable economic development. He has helped create thousands of new jobs, promoted historical preservation and created a framework to bring the beloved Streetcar back to Downtown Los Angeles.

Councilmember Huizar has also helped bring hundreds of acres of open space, new parks and park upgrades to park-poor areas of his district and is one of the City’s leading “Complete Streets” proponents, ushering in groundbreaking pedestrian and bike-friendly policies that are seen as the model for the entire City.

Prior to his Council election, José served as a member and President of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Board of Education. As Board President, José oversaw the planning and implementation of the largest school construction program in U.S. history.

José Huizar was born in Zacatecas, Mexico and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Berkeley, a Master’s degree in Public Affairs and Urban Planning from Princeton University and a Juris Doctorate from UCLA School of Law. He is the first Mexican immigrant elected to the City Council in Los Angeles’ history and in 2004, he became the first Latino to serve on the Princeton Board of Trustees.

Councilmember Huizar has been awarded numerous awards and distinctions, including profiles by the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of the 25 figures in the Los Angeles Area that “stand out for their potential to shape lives” and by Hispanic Business Magazine as one of the “100 most influential Hispanics” in the United States. He resides in Boyle Heights with his wife Richelle Rios, their son Simón and three daughters, Emilia, Isabella and Aviana.
