We’Ced recently sat down with District 4 County Supervisor candidate Fidel Cervantes. If elected, the 24 year-old Cervantes, a native of Delhi, California, would become the first Mexican-American and the youngest person to ever hold a supervisor seat in the county of Merced. “When I’m doing public speaking, I know people have preconceived perceptions of who I am because of my age and ethnicity. But once I’ve spoken everyone’s initial perception has changed.” The interview is on We’Ced.
