If you ever spoke to any childhood friends of Cerritos Mayor Mark Pulido, they’ll tell you that serving as a leader was always his dream. Among his accomplishments growing up was serving as the President of the Filipino Club while at nationally-ranked Whitney High. Whether it was at the high school level or beyond, Mark always strived to be the face and voice of his group.
After he graduated high school, he would continue serving in leadership roles. At UCLA, he served as President of Samahang Pilipino and became the first Filipino American to be elected Student Body President.
Today, Mark’s leadership success continues as he serves his first full year as Mayor of Cerritos.
During the Cerritos Council’s Annual Reorganization Meeting on March 13th, Mark placed things into perspective. “I feel very fortunate and just want to give back for all of my blessings. In elective office, I strive to set a positive example for my children and all our youth that you can truly make a difference in your local community and in the world.”
