Welcome to Patiño for Union City
The Official Website of Councilman Patiño


The Platform

Serving The Community

Before being elected to the City Council, I was a member of the Human Relations Commission for Union City & on the Board of Centro de Servicios. I am also on the Board of Directors for Tirburcio Vasquez Health Center. I am also a Member of the Community Emergency Response Team.

United By A Common Goal

Being a Single Father & lifelong resident of Union City, I know the challenges we face here when it comes to City Services, Traffic, Crime and Schools. I will work hard to make Union City a great place to live and raise our children.
