Election 2020 Interviews: Orlando Osornio, Candidate for Salinas City Council, District 4 Salinas Underground Podcast


Listen to the entire Election 2020 series

VOMB and Salinas Underground Podcast present their interview with Orlando Osornio, a candidate running for Salinas City Council in the Nov. 3 election. Earlier this year, before the pandemic changed our lives, Osornio was featured by the USA Network as an example of Latino entrepreneurs.

Born and raised in Salinas, Osornio is the owner of Tortas al 100 and became a homeowner at 26. The attention the media brought him empowered him and he decided to run for office. He is seeking the 4th District Salinas City Council position that Gloria de la Rosa will leave vacant when she retires from public office this year.

Hosts Claudia Meléndez Salinas and Salinas Underground Podcast founder Oz Lucero are on a mission to interview every candidate for Salinas City Council and the 4th District Supervisor’s position before the Nov. 3. Check Voices of Monterey Bay’s election archive often for updates.
