SAMUEL VILCHEZ SANTIAGO:
A FEARLESS, EFFECTIVE, & INNOVATIVE LEADER READY TO FIGHT FOR US!
Samuel Vilchez Santiago is a fearless, effective, and innovative leader who has worked in our community for over ten years. The son of a small business owner and a special education assistant teacher, Samuel moved to Azalea Park at a young age as a political refugee from Venezuela who didn't know any English.
After graduating as Valedictorian at Colonial High School, Samuel went on to graduate with honors from Princeton University. In 2018, he led a historic youth-run campaign to get Johanna López elected as the first Latina and Puerto Rican OCPS School Board member. He also served as the Communications Director for the March for our Lives in Orlando, helping to mobilize over 20,000 people to march against gun violence in Central Florida.
He currently serves as the Florida Campaign Manager for All Voting is Local, a non-profit organization that works to protect our right to vote. He is a member of the Orange County Charter Review Commission, where he has championed the protection of our environment, ethics reform, and equal representation for all.
Samuel is the recipient of President Obama's Volunteer Service Award, the Congressional Youth Award, and a Rhodes Scholar Finalist. As our State Representative, Samuel will fight to make sure that every kid and family in our community has access to the same opportunities he had so that they can accomplish their American Dream.
