I never imagined myself enjoying what they call sign waving. It seems just not too long ago when I see a group of people doing this for their candidate. I feel great that I got my first shot at it!

Endorse Roland Esquivias For Hercules City Council


I am running to be your council member because I would like to give back to the community my expertise, passion, and knowledge. I believe that with my experience working for the State of California for the past 20+ years gave me a strong grasp on the wide range of issues that we have today from governance, consumer protection, education, health, energy efficiency, and safety. I am currently working for the Public Utilities Commission and I am retiring this coming December 2016 which will definitely give me more time to focus my energy working for the city.

As a business advocate, I had the opportunity to work with local, state, and federal agencies, diverse business organizations, and chambers of commerce. I served as a facilitator and a liaison to these groups to accomplish forging relationships and building rapport so that these entities can do business with each other accomplishing their individual and specific goals and objectives.

As a consumer advocate, I worked with different local governments, neighborhood associations, community based organizations, senior centers, and our veterans. I introduced programs that are focused on the low-income, underserved, and senior communities. I worked and coordinated efforts with different agencies to identify areas of improvement resulting in policy recommendations for these communities.
If elected to serve as your council member, I will build on these experiences to work for a financially stable and safe environment that is vibrant and sustainable.

I am looking forward to your endorsement on my Facebook page to raise awareness of my campaign. More importantly, your VOTE this coming November 8th for the City Council of Hercules that will give me the opportunity to roll my sleeves up and truly work my very best. Please remember that I have more time for this city to make a difference. Hercules, let’s make a difference!

Empowering our Elders


rolandesquivias2Hi Folks! This past week went by so quickly but productive! Senior citizens have a special place in my heart and they will always will be.

Last week, I had the privilege to visit this wonderful Senior Center. From that outreach, I had the chance to reach out and speak to them about the issues that resonates most to them.

As a citizen of Hercules and councilor, I would empower our Elders with all the programs that are available to them.

Be an advocate, by advising them on avoiding to be exploited as victims of fraud and scams that they are most vulnerable.

Thanks! Have a good day!

Affordable Housing:
Hercules City accommodates its citizens to have access to affordable housing especially seniors and low to medium income families. However, a portion on new housing developments should be offered as an affordable housing units that will cater to professionals who are not getting the compensation that they deserve like teachers and city staff workers.

Environmental Issues:
Hercules City is going through a lot of developments. However, these buildings should be energy efficient and sustainably renewable. Together with the new housing development, I will proactively reach out to the developers on utilizing solar panels as a new source of a clean, safe and sustianable energy resource.

Hercules City promotes a fiscally strong future by focusing on infrastructure improvements and developments through road improvement of aging infrastructure, parks and recreation upgrade.
