Meet Rafael

Trujillo Family

Rialto has been hit hard by the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Rafael pushed through a series of measures to help our residents stay healthy, survive the economic downfall, and get back to work safely.

Even before the Pandemic, all eyes were on Rialto because Rafael is making Rialto a city to live, work, and play. Rafael gave police and fire the resources and personnel to keep us safe, brought your favorite store brands for you to shop right here in Rialto--creating thousands of local jobs in the process, and built quality parks for the whole family to enjoy.
