This strategic location has safeguarded dozens of businesses, ensuring the community can shop and spend their money locally without any worries. Enhanced public safety provides residents peace of mind and fosters a conducive environment for businesses to thrive. A secure community encourages more foot traffic, increases consumer confidence, and attracts potential investors, all contributing to a robust local economy.

With a commitment to the community’s well-being, he serves as an exemplary model for fellow council members in effectively representing their constituents while upholding the highest standards of professionalism on the dais and in the public eye.”
Figueroa’s deep ties to the community, underscored by his tenure as a former Neighborhood Association President and his endorsement by California State Assemblymember James Ramos, have been instrumental in fostering trust and open communication between the police department, local businesses, and residents.
His proactive approach to public safety, combined with his vision for the future of the 3rd Ward and San Bernardino at large, has set a positive trajectory for the community.
The SBPOA, recognizing Councilman Juan Figueroa’s unwavering dedication to San Bernardino and his achievements in public safety, is honored to endorse him for reelection, confident in his vision for a safer and more prosperous community.
