Meet Mayor Pro Tem Baca

In 2012, Victoria Baca made history when she became the first Latina elected to the Moreno Valley City Council.  In 2013, in another first, she was chosen by her fellow Councilmembers to serve as the City’s Mayor Pro Tem. Now serving her second Council term, Mayor Pro Tem Baca was elected in 2016 to represent the newly created Council District 1.

Her policy priorities include stimulating local economic activity and supporting new business, creating well-paying local jobs for Moreno Valley residents, advocating for safer neighborhoods and supporting excellence in education for the City’s youth.
Mayor Pro Tem Baca demonstrated her commitment to education when in 2006 she became the first Latina elected to serve as a member of the Moreno Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees.  She continues her education advocacy as the owner and operator of an education consulting firm.

As a Councilmember, she is currently appointed to the Library Commission, Senior Citizens Board, Parks & Community Services Council Committee and the Public Safety Subcommittee.  Her current inter-agency appointments include service as the first Latina Chair of the March Joint Powers Commission (JPC); member of the School Districts/City Joint Task Force; and member of the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG).

Mayor Pro Tem Baca’s extensive community involvement includes service as a founding member of the Moreno Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; a member of the Inland Empire American GI Forum; former director of the Inland Empire Regional Mexican American Political Association; and lead judge from 2014-2016 for the Friends of Riverside Community College District Forensics Middle School Speech Meet.

A Los Angeles native, Mayor Pro Tem Baca comes from a large family with a proud history of military service dating back to World War I. Her father, a WWII veteran, instilled in her siblings and her a deep love of country and respect for the law.   She credits her mother’s strong belief in the power of public education to improve people’s lives with her own choice of career as an education consultant.  She has a daughter, three grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Mayor Pro Tem Baca earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from California State University, San Bernardino; and a Master of Arts degree from Chapman University; and she completed a Masters in Governance program from the California School Boards Association.

Mayor Pro Tem Baca’s many awards and recognitions include Women of Excellence, Community Advocate Award from the National Latina Business Women Association, Inland Empire; Citizen of Achievement Award from the League of Women Voters; 2019 Legacy of Exemplary Service – Women of Achievement Award from Libreria del Pueblo; and the endorsement of the National Latino Peace Officers Association, 2012 and 2014.
