Background / Employment

Council Member Saucedo is a third generation Redlander whose family has a legacy of service to the community, beginning with his grandfather, who established a church on Lawton Street. After graduating from Redlands High School in 1975, Council Member Saucedo owned and ran a landscaping business. Later on he began working for the City of Redlands, including the departments of public works (formerly), landfill, and parks.  During his time with the City he worked with the community and initiated a revitalization strategy for the northern areas of Redlands. Under his organization, community members drafted the North Redlands Vision Plan, which identified needed improvements in infrastructure, beautification, youth programs, affordable housing, and the business environment. The document was a comprehensive strategic plan, and was accepted by the City Council.  The plan led to the receipt of a $3.5 million grant for property owners, within the plan’s boundaries, to revitalize their properties. The associated projects used all local contractors and vendors. He finished a 30-year career with the City in 2018, working last in water distribution to provide safe and reliable drinking water for Redlands residents and businesses.
