Meet Flavio

Flavio lives in the Granada neighborhood in Phoenix with his wife, Liz.

Rooted in Family.

A fifth-generation Arizonan, Flavio proudly embraces his family’s Mexican-American heritage and believes that West Phoenix’s cultural diversity is a strength. As a grandson of both a U.S. veteran and an Arizona copper miner, and a nephew of a United Farm Worker organizer, Flavio grew up with a deep admiration for the civil and labor rights movements and is committed to building off the progress made by those before him.

Education Advocate.

Flavio is a proud first-generation college graduate. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science and philosophy with an emphasis in social justice from Loyola University Chicago, where he had the honor of serving as student body president. As president, Flavio utilized his platform to create a scholarship fund for undocumented students ineligible for federal financial aid. Having benefited from strong mentors throughout his life, he understands the importance of paying it forward and centers this value in his work.


Today, Flavio serves on the Board of Directors for Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS), Open Hearts Family Wellness in LD 26, and the Kino Border Initiative in Southern Arizona.

Each of Flavio’s experiences as an educator, Congressional staffer, and in the nonprofit sector provides him with the skills to help address the district’s most pressing needs while creating opportunities for future generations. He currently serves as a Democratic precinct committee person in Legislative District 26's Granada precinct.
