Alfredo was elected to the THPRD board of directors in 2021. It was his first campaign for public office, motivated by a desire to help the district build healthier, more inclusive, and interconnected communities.
He and his wife, Kristin, are raising their two young kids, while both working full time, in South Beaverton. The family is active users of THPRD’s recreation centers, trails, camps, and, especially, its playgrounds.
A career communications and community relations professional, Alfredo has forged connections throughout Washington County and beyond in his work as the community relations manager for Portland Community College’s western service district. He has served on numerous west side boards and committees, including the Five Oaks Museum, where he is currently the board co-chair.
Proudly bi-racial and bi-cultural, Alfredo was born into a large, active Mexican American family in the border city of El Paso, Texas, but grew up a world away in the timber town of Roseburg in Southern Oregon.
He graduated with honors with a BA in history from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he later leveraged a lifelong love of sports into a 10-year career with the UNM athletics media relations department.
Alfredo returned to Oregon in 2010 and has enjoyed exploring the local history and hidden gems of food and drink throughout the Portland metro area while sharing a laugh with friends old and new.
