Mario Trujillo

Downey City Council, District 5

Mario will continue to be an important voice for equality on the Downey City Council!


As a child, my single mother’s passion for community and justice influenced me the most. I learned the value of education and standing up for the rights of all citizens from her. My upbringing laid the foundation for successful careers as a primary and college-level teacher and a respected county deputy district attorney. In 2020, I was elected to the Downey City Council, and in 2023, I was appointed as Mayor. Despite my professional achievements, my dedication to family and passion for public service remain unwavering and are my most cherished accomplishments.
