During these uncomfortable times, we all have had to create new habits and priorities. I, too, have found myself working from home, teaching for the teachers, and finding peace amid chaos. Over the past four years with the support of my family, it has been my honor to serve as your Councilman.
I have worked hard to represent Carson residents in all levels of governments; with the support of a few, we have made significant progress, stopping eviction and foreclosures, keeping our communities safe from violence, and feeding the most vulnerable in our community. I have successfully advocated for investments in our young, old, and in between, to provide them with alternative activities, job training, and opportunities and prevent the noise and air contamination.
Understanding the challenges, we face, I have successfully advocated for the resources and public policies we need to meet the coronavirus's unprecedented challenges. I am proud to stand with many of our first responders on the front line fighting to protect you and our communities.
As some of you may know, I have been a resident of Carson for over 25-years and I was a City employee as the Parks and Recreation Director making sure our Parks are safe. My education background include: a Bachelor Degree from California State University Fullerton, Master's Degree from California State University Dominguez Hills and a MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management fellows’ program. I want to continue being your voice to get trees trimmed, streets repaired, and to keep our community safe.
My wife and I have raised (3) Carson born children and the City of Carson is our Home. My vision for Carson is for all residents to reach their full potential through education, business, recreation and wellness.
I thank you for allowing me to continue to protect and elevate the good that makes our Carson community a great place to live, work, and play. With this in mind, I thank you to for electing me on the November 3rd election. Let’s stand together!
In your Service,
Cedric L. Hicks, Sr., Councilman - District 3
My motto in moving Carson forward: "Make It Happen!"
