Personal Information:
Home City: Avondale
Member Since: 2019

The son of a Vietnam veteran and copper miner, Lorenzo came up through the public school system in Tucson’s impoverished Sunnyside School District. He was the first in his family to make it to – and through – college, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Arizona State University. He began a career in corporate communications, creating award-winning marketing and community development projects that earned him a career in Fortune 100 and 500 industries.

His roots and experiences drive his passion for local and statewide community service and advocacy. His proven ability to innovate and collaborate, bringing meaningful improvements to individuals and communities, has earned him appointments to:

  • Maricopa Association of Governments – Economic Development Commission
  • Secretary, Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s Hispanic Advisory Board
  • City of Phoenix Business and Workforce Development Commission
  • Hispanic Leadership Forum del Oeste
  • Vice-Chair, Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
  • Chicanos por la Causa – Health and Human Services Committee
  • Xico (Latino-based arts organization)

Having experienced the American Dream firsthand, Lorenzo is determined to give back. Investing in education, creating good jobs and building strong neighborhoods are a cornerstone of his service, delivering on the promise of the American Dream for those he serves.

Lorenzo and his wife, Rhonda, are proud to call Arizona home. They are raising their family, including two very friendly dogs, in the heart of Avondale.
