He has lived in Omaha for almost 20 years, having grown up in small-town Columbus, Nebraska. Having seen how much people care about each other and their neighborhood in South Omaha, just like they do in small towns, gave Roger a love for the local community here combined with the rich diversity and immigrant history in South O. In 2022, Roger became the first-ever Latino Commissioner in Douglas County. Since then, he has strived to diligently serve all of his constituency and to be actively involved across his district. He has worked hard to be a transparent, engaged, and effective leader. He strives to work with all partners and stakeholders to ensure that together we can have pride in our local community and see continued progress toward a better future for our families.
