Jed Leano, recently voted Mayor of Claremont by his City Council colleagues, is inarguably among the city's most active, altruistic and involved residents and City Council members. In between balancing the many facets and demands of his Immigration Law Practice, unswerving dedication to his family, selflessly and successfully leading multiple charitable groups, Mayor Leano takes this opportunity to introduce himself to Claremont. In this captivating and compelling interview, Mayor Leano discusses his extraordinary path to this point, reflecting on the key defining points in the path of his life, and highlighting some of the many unselfish accomplishments that, in Claremont and elsewhere, are focused on assisting those in the most need. Mayor Leano describes his core beliefs and philosophies that make up the compass that guides his actions, serves his innate passion for helping others, and helps define the leadership style that has successfully brought to completion a wide range of community-spirited projects and programs that will endure for decades to come.
Best of all, Mayor Leano never breaks from his down-to-earth, likable Southern/SoCal conversational style. Claremont's newest HMIC mixes humor and vulnerability with personal anecdotes and his deep care for his community, family and friends to make this interview one that will leave the listener beyond entertained, informed and motivated. For those wanting more, Mayor Leano, now headlining the Claremont City Council Meetings, encourages everyone to stop in, be heard...and get involved. Enjoy!
