Jacob Villagomez


District Director for State Senator Melissa Hurtado

Jacob Villagomez served as an intern for Assemblymember Henry Perea during the spring and summer of 2015. He is a proud Sanger-native and is passionate about family, strong coffee and, of course, all things related to the Central Valley.

“The Maddy Institute provided me with a foundation and path towards government/public relations that is built on nonpartisanship and service, two components that are extremely important in engaging the public.”

After his Maddy Internship, Jacob was hired by the Office of Assemblyman Perea while working on his Bachelor’s in Political Science from California State University, Fresno. Upon graduation in 2016 he served the Fresno County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) as an economic development and government relations professional.
