Bruno Amato came to a meeting of Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club to introduce himself. He is a candidate for the 23rd Congressional District and a challenger for the seat held by Kevin McCarthy. Bruno never planned to become a politician but thinks new leadership is needed to change the turmoil and division that has developed in this country. He thinks McCarthy has failed us, and we need someone who cares.
Bruno is the son of Italian immigrant parents who met and married in California. Bruno was raised with a strong work ethic and belief in the goodness of the United States. His father served in WWII, and Bruno joined the Navy at the age of 17. After completing his term of duty, he worked as a Journeyman Ironworker. During lunch breaks, he read a book called Live Your Dreams by Les Brown. It inspired him to take acting lessons after work. He has been a working actor for the past 20 years.
Now Bruno is entering a new phase in his life. He is committed to serving his country once again. His key issues involve health care, jobs, and education. He is ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work for the people in the 23rd District.
Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club will be resuming meetings on Zoom in September. See the website www.tehachapidemocrats.com for information.
