Rick Ledesma - Hometown Leadership
No one knows District 5 better than a true local – and Rick Ledesma is that local. Born and raised in the exact area he is seeking to represent – Ledesma is an El Modena High graduate (he was even a winning Vanguard QB).
He and his wife Rocio have raised their kids in District 5, his parents were residents of Orange, and his brothers and sister still call Orange their home.
Ledesma currently serves as a Governing Board Member for the Orange Unified School District. He knows the district inside and out, cares about the issues, is a collaborative problem solver, and will hit the ground running on day one.
During his time as an Orange Unified School District Trustee,
Ledesma was instrumental in helping to:
Eliminate (not reduce) more than $60 million dollars in unfunded
Raise property values through strategic school improvement initiatives
Establish one of the lowest administrative staffing ratios in all of Orange
Rick looks forward to bringing his 30-plus years of experience in finance and business management working with notable companies of all sizes, to help the City Of Orange navigate the complex issues it now faces as a result of COVID 19 “new normal” business environment.
