Rickk Montoya Files for Garden Grove City Council District 6

Garden Grove, CA        Garden Grove Parks, Arts and Recreation Commission Chair and lifelong East Garden Grove resident Rickk Montoya today announced he has filed to run for City Council in Garden Grove’s new District 6.
“For too long, the neighborhoods of East Garden Grove have gone without representation on the Garden Grove City Council.” Montoya said, “I’m running to be their voice. For the next two and a half months I plan to listen to residents and families across District 6. If elected, I’ll guarantee our issues and concerns are heard at city hall.”

Rickk Montoya was raised in the same East Garden Grove community where he and his wife currently own their home and raise their children. He attended Woodbury, Doig, and graduated from Santiago High School. He also spent over 10 years serving in the United States Army. He currently works as a 911 Dispatcher with the Los Angeles Police Department. He and his wife, Autumn, also give back to their community as an Ambassador Family for the local Muscular Dystrophy Association.

“We need responsive, homegrown leadership that knows our community and works to solve problems,” Montoya concluded. “It’s time East Garden Grove had an advocate working to improve our neighborhoods and keep our streets safe, clean, and free of graffiti.”

District 6 includes the communities East of Haster St. and South of Garden Grove Blvd as well as the neighborhoods around Santiago High School and Buena Clinton. You can learn more about Rickk Montoya’s campaign by visiting his website
