InfoGeorgette’s priorities include Medicare for All, expanding affordable housing, reducing homelessness, investing in public transit and infrastructure, championing clean air and water, defending immigrants’ rights and fighting for more federal funding for San Diego communities.

The first LGBTQ Latina elected San Diego City Council President, Georgette’s legislative accomplishments include expanding affordable housing, strengthening protections for low-income renters, leading implementation of the city’s landmark Climate Action Plan and delivering millions in new funding for community priorities including street repairs, parks and libraries.

A longtime community organizer, Georgette is a former associate director of the Environmental Health Coalition, where she led the Toxic Free Neighborhoods Campaign to protect kids from lead paint and keep polluting industries out of residential communities. Earlier in her career, Georgette worked as a victims’ advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse.

On the City Council, Georgette represents the urban communities of central San Diego and, as Chair of the Metropolitan Transit System, she oversees mass transit in a 570-square mile service area with approximately 3 million residents. She is the first queer Latina to hold both positions.

A first generation Mexican-American and native San Diegan, Georgette grew up in San Diego’s Barrio Logan community to working class immigrant parents – her father was a gardener and her mother worked minimum wage jobs.

Georgette is a graduate of San Diego State University and holds a BA in Environmental and Natural Resource Geography. Georgette and her partner, Dr. Raquel Pacheco, live in City Heights with their dog, Canela.
