Re-elect Councilmember

James Toma

The promise of safe neighborhoods and quality schools is why James Toma and his wife Minerva chose West Covina as the place to raise their children. James proudly calls West Covina home and is running for re-election to continue protecting that promise and our city’s future.
As our Councilmember and former Mayor, James is working to protect our public safety resources, parks, and services we depend on and deserve by fighting for citywide budget reforms and cuts to needless spending.

James has pushed to hire more police officers and expand programs dealing with graffiti and homelessness. He is a champion for smart-growth policies that attract new businesses and bring jobs to West Covina while preserving our family-friendly neighborhoods.

As our Councilmember, and as a Deputy Attorney General, James has dedicated his life to protecting and serving the public.

That commitment and experience is why we need James Toma as our voice on West Covina City Council.
