Magnificent Mujer Interview: Vivian Moreno

Please tune in today to check out Enrique Morone's interview with Vivian Moreno. This Councilwoman for San Diego’s 8th district is passionate about honoring her Mexican roots and heritage and creating opportunities for residents of her district to create beautiful, healthy, and prosperous lives within the neighborhoods that fall under her jurisdiction. Her professional career has developed from nurturing great relationships with elder local representatives such as David Alvarez. Her success comes from taking the advice of mentors who guided her, as she now strives to guide younger women on their paths in social and public service. 

As a young woman Vivian Moreno saw her future in the Foreign Service. Traveling is a huge passion of hers, in college she studied political science with an emphasis on International Relations and Latin American Studies. She can proudly claim to have visited 27 countries, she loves traveling, and the value of collecting stamps on her passport has outweighed the desire for a luxury vehicle. There are no car payments necessary to pay off her 2007 Mazda i3. That extra cash is stowed away for plane trips and checking off countries from her bucket list. 

Councilmember Vivian Moreno was elected to represent the City of San Diego’s Eighth City Council District in 2018.  She has dedicated her career to improving the region’s most underserved communities through experience, volunteer work and public service . Currently she is very concerned with protecting the health and well being of families in her district that are being over proportionately affected by Covid 19.The Councilmember currently serves as Chair of the Land Use and Housing Committee, Vice Chair of the Committee on the Environment, a member of the Committee on Budget and Government Efficiency, Committee on Infrastructure and the Committee on Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods.  She also serves on the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System Board, the Otay Valley Regional Park Policy Committee, the SANDAG Bayshore Bikeway Working Group, SANDAG Borders Committee, SANDAG Public Safety Committee, San Diego Consortium Policy Board and Chairs the Otay Mesa Enhanced Infrastructure Financing District Public Financing Authority.
