Meet Andy Morales

Born and raised in Bakersfield, California, Andy Morales is the son of a combat veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom and an office manager with a local grape company. His parents taught him the value of hard work, respect for others and never giving up. He got his first job at age 16 doing manual labor at the same grape company where his mother works as an office manager. Andy spent his childhood at school in McFarland, a predominantly low-income immigrant community. There, he witnessed the struggles of honest, working-class families. By the time he graduated from high school in Bakersfield, Andy was determined to pursue a path that would enable him to fight on behalf of everyday people against the self-serving interests of the powerful.

Andy graduated from Fresno State in 2022 with a degree in Criminology and now works in private security. However, his determination to fight for children, working families and those who are struggling has led him to pursue a seat in Congress in 2024. Too many politicians fail to truly work in support of the interests of those they represent and, instead, only work for their donors and special interests. Politicians like Kevin McCarthy only cater to the rich and powerful-not to families like ours. Andy is standing up to create opportunities for those disenfranchised by the current system.
As a Central Valley native, Andy understands the issues that affect our communities, and as a security officer he has engaged directly with those experiencing homelessness, addiction, and mental illness. He is adept at de-escalation and strives to treat everyone he meets with understanding and respect. He’s running for Congress because we need someone who isn’t afraid to stand up to the status quo and put us first. He knows that too often Central Valley families feel alone. That’s why he’s going to fight for our security and make real progress towards accessible healthcare, affordable housing, better education, environmental protection, women’s rights, and social justice.
