Ambriz wants to stay on course, keep Atwater moving forward – Merced County Times


Atwater City Councilor Danny Ambriz is running for reelection to retain the District 3 seat after a four-year term in office.

District 3 is located south of Juniper Avenue and includes the downtown business district, as well as the Super Target, Walmart, and the rest of the Applegate malls.

“My focus is on moving Atwater forward,” Ambriz told the Times. “I don’t want to focus on what has or hasn’t happened in the past four years. I want to keep making sure our parks are clean. Our roads are being taken care of. Our first responders are taken care of – especially with Measure B coming up on the ballot here. ”

Ambriz said he has remained very involved in city affairs and has maintained a good attendance for the past four years. “Voters can look at my track record. In the past four years, there were probably five or fewer meetings that I couldn’t attend. Two of them were when my son was born.”

He pointed out that he is not serving the city for any kind of profit. “No backdoor deals are being made with me because I am not a small business owner in town. I work for the school district in our neighboring town. So I’m purely running to make sure Atwater stays healthy again and is here for the future of our children.”

The incumbent says he is an independent thinker who has his priorities straight. “I’m not going to be influenced by the rest of the council, no matter what people think. I’m friendly to everyone on stage, but that doesn’t mean I agree with everything they say. I will do what is best for my neighbourhood, but also for the city.”

Ambriz has worked for the Merced City School District in the IT department for the past 20 years. He has also been a union leader from local to state level for the past 8 years. He is married and has two children.
