Rocky De La Fuente has been fighting for the underdog his whole life. His humble beginnings in San Diego, CA and his childhood on both sides of the US border led him to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong work ethic early in life. He persevered in the face of adversity and overcame obstacles throughout his life to achieve the American dream.
Rocky often states that he lives in the real world rather than the political one and does not have to pretend to understand the issues affecting the underserved, minorities or immigrants because he has lived it. He has developed the street smarts and common sense that will serve him in bringing transformation and practical solutions to the problems that face the people of New York City. Job creation, stagnant wages, income inequality, affordable housing, health and sanitation, garbage collection, education, drug abuse, addiction and homelessness are the issues which he will tackle with his business acumen, common sense and logical approach as mayor of New York City.
Just as Rocky battled in court for 9 years and won the right to fly the American flag on a prominent landmark to honor our country, he will fight for the people of New York City. The many challenges that Rocky overcame as he built companies from the ground up have made him empathetic to the those who are often overlooked or underrepresented in the halls of power. He has created thousands of jobs across the United States and provided fair wages and health benefits to his employees. He will apply his hard earned experience in addressing the issues which plague New York City. His desire to build a better world for future generations is the driving force that guides his life. He will be a mayor for all the people that unites and strengthens communities. Join Rocky and Let’s Save New York City together!
