La Mirada businessman Noel Jaimes has been a familiar face in the community since 1975. A graduate of Biola University, Jamies earned a degree in Christian Education and is married and have four sons. His youngest son currently attends the Orange County Performing Arts School and his three older sons have embarked on successful careers.
Jaimes has built a successful real estate business in the La Mirada and Whittier area and is active in La Mirada civic affairs as a city commissioner on various boards including parks and recreation, senior citizens, and as an advisor to an area hospital.
Jaimes is running for the State Assembly because he said he has “seen too many people lose their homes, and that too many people are losing jobs and no one in Sacramento is doing anything about the problems we are all facing.”
He claims that in the new 57th Assembly District that as many as 28,000 people are current unemployed and in South Whittier and Los Nietos (unincorporated portions of Los Angeles County) the jobless rate skyrockets upwards past 18 percent.
“Right now people are having a tough time in the 57th Assembly District just trying to find food for the table, and that is frankly just unacceptable,” Jaimes said.
He touts his experience as a business owner and “solid ties” in the community as being a “huge plus” in being able to represent the area in Sacramento.
“This election is one of the most important in my lifetime,” Jaimes told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper.
He is also a member of the California Association of Realtors and are currently assistant “six to eight” local families trying to get loan modifications “just to save their homes.”
Jaimes called Sacramento lawmakers “out of touch with reality.” “I want to do what is best for the community, not what is best for me.”
