My Name is Richard Valle. I was born in Corcoran, California. I attended Fremont Elementary School, John Muir Middle School and graduated Corcoran High School in 1988.
In May of 1990 I raised my right hand as I was sworn in to the United States Marine Corps. I served proudly for 6 years. I served as a Private, Lance Corporal and finally as Sergeant. I was stationed in El Toro-Irvine, Miramar-San Diego, and in Iwankuni Japan.
I am proud to be a Veteran. It taught me a lot about life.
After being honorably discharged, I returned to Corcoran and was hired by the Santa Rosa Rancheria. After 4 years of working as an Audit Inspector in their casino, I decided to attend San Joaquin Valley College. After completing my degree in Human Resource Administration, I decided to remain in the Valley and in February of 2003, I was hired as a Field Representative for Assemblywoman Nicole Parra.
During those 6 years of service, I worked with leadership as well as community members of the 30th Assembly District, which is made up of portions of Fresno County, Tulare County, Kern County and all of Kings County.
My passion for public service led me to pursue a seat on the Kings County Board of Supervisors. On November 4, 2008 the voters gave me the honor to represent them in District 2. I am proud to represent Avenal, Corcoran, Home Garden & Kettleman City and be of service to those hard working taxpayers.
