Game Changer: Amanda Renteria

Amanda Renteria


Amanda is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant farmworker who worked his way up, eventually building a family and a small business in the Central Valley. Amanda was the first Mexican-American from her small town to be accepted at Stanford University. She was also the first Latina Chief of Staff in U.S. Senate history.


U.S. House of Representatives – California’s 21st Congressional District – Challenger. The June 3rd primary will be a “jungle primary,” where the top two candidates advance, regardless of party. Congressman David Valadao, the incumbent, has a strong anti-women and anti-choice voting record.


In 2007, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow promoted Amanda to Chief of Staff, making her the first Latina Chief of Staff in Senate history.

Amanda has experience as a teacher as well as in the financial industry.
