Today more than ever we need real proven leadership in Congress.



When we get people back to work we make citizens that are self reliant and able to provide and care for their families.



Every child is important and together we will make sure all of our children are receiving a quality education.



We must ensure the children of the 51st District are safe. Every citizen of the 51st District should feel safe.



We need proven leaders that will put others before their own needs and what I am, is a proven leader.


I grew up in National City and I know the people of the 51st District are proud, hard working people that do not want hand outs. Instead of government assistance they want and need good jobs. When we consider an American wanting to work it is an admirable characteristic. Furthermore, is it too much to ask that their Congressional representatives to do all they can to influence and bring jobs to the District?

In 2013 Juan Vargas, “The Wrong Juan” entered Congress and he publically stated that jobs was his number one priority. Today the unemployment rate in the 51st District is still 17.5%. By any reasonable standards it is clear that, “The Wrong Juan” has failed! If he has not done anything in almost six years to improve the jobless rate, then why give him two more years? We need to start right now to make sure that you and your children have meaningful employment available to them. This higher employment can and must be in the 51st Congressional District. It will help everyone: your children, your community, California, and the United States of America.

When we get people back to work we make citizens that are self reliant and able to provide and care for their families. We will always have a small minority of our society that needs some help but that should be the exception and not the norm. With a 17.5% unemployment rate in the 51st District, I have concerns and I believe the citizens of the 51st District share my concern and ask who in Washington DC is looking out for them? I don’t even have to talk bad about my opponent. We only need to look at the facts. Across the country we have an all time low unemployment rate, especially among minorities. However, unemployment in the 51st District remains at 17.5%, which is unacceptable. We will create more jobs for you and your children through free enterprise and a value for individual freedoms and a limited government.

Think about it like this . . . You own your own company and you hire a person that says they will do something about a specific problem. After one year, two years, five years this person has failed to solve the problem. Most people would have fired that person after a couple of years. Well, it is time to fire “The Wrong Juan,” (Juan VARGAS) and have The Right Juan” Juan HIDALGO working for you, so that together we will make a more prosperous 51st District for our children.


Friends, an education is so important to everyone, and our children should be given an opportunity to acquire a quality education. If we educate our children, they will have the tools needed to be successful and competitive in life, regardless of what they choose to do. It is time that our children are offered the same education that is offered north of the interstate 8 in San Diego. Why is it that Juan Vargas and other politicians are content with children in less economic developed areas getting an inferior education?

Every child is important and together we will make sure all of our children are receiving a quality education. Vargas and his kind are content with only 65% of our young people getting a high school education. Furthermore, they are okay with only 13% earning a college degree. I am not content with either of these statistics and together WE will make sure we change this and ensure our children are better educated.

I came from this same area and I was not supposed to get a college education, but today I am proud to say that I have two-college degrees through hard work, great teachers and mentors who influenced me to persevere. Now I want to provide the same encouragement for all the young people in the 51st Congressional District.

Choosing a career as a teacher is an honorable and admirable decision that not all are able or qualified to do. I am sure that in every profession there are poor, fair, good, and outstanding performers. We must keep the very best teachers in order that our children get the very best education. Great teachers must be rewarded. The administration of our schools must work together with the parents and teachers in order to provide the best educational environment in each classroom. With your help we can together to ensure our children are once again getting a quality education.


I have never met a good father who does not want his family to be safe. I have never met a good mother who does not want her family to be safe. I have never met good parents that did not want their children to be safe. We must ensure the children of the 51st District are safe. Every citizen should feel safe and unfortunately this is not the case.

Recently I was talking with a dear lady in the District. She stopped me to ask me if I would pray with her and listen to her issue. We prayed and then she went on to tell me that she was she did not feel safe in her home after dark and would not dare go outside. This is no way for Americans to live! Children are afraid to go to school and parents cannot even let their children go to the park.

Again, this is no way for the people of the 51st District, California, or the United States of America to live. Together we will once again make sure you, your children, and your grandchildren are safe in your homes, neighborhoods, schools and churches. In order to make our citizens feel safe again we must have a strong National Defense, support our local authorities that are authorized to enforce the rule of law.


The Hidalgo Family is very involved with church and the community. Both Juan and Fran have spent many years serving on church and school boards. The entire family has spent many years working with Toys For Tots and feed the homeless ministries in San Diego. In order to have a better appreciate for our Country and to better Serve God he and his wife Fran have sent all three of their children on mission trips abroad. As a matter of fact one of the Hidalgo Children is currently serving as a college student missionary. For the last seven years each summer the Hidalgos’ have opened their home to student missionaries. These student missionaries were working for Jesus at the same time their hard work helped with the cost of their education.
