On the Issues:
Education: Saucedo believes in teaching and learning beyond the classroom.
"Imagine communities that teach their children that you don't have to have a job for the rest of your life," said Saucedo at the Candidate Forum on Jan. 25.
Economy: Saucedo believes in retaining local wealth and promoting economic mobility.
"Collective income [for 76704] is $18 million for 9,000 residents. Where is our wealth going? How come we are not retaining wealth in our inner cities?" said Saucedo.
