Mayor, City of Winters — Elected position (2012current)
Councilmember, City of Winters — Elected position (2008current)

Cecilia Aguiar-Curry has a track record of getting things done as a community leader and businesswoman,
Planning Commissioner, City Councilmember, as now as the first woman Mayor of Winters.
Cecilia’s understanding of regional and local needs makes her a unique candidate in this vast District that
includes all or parts of Napa, Sonoma, Solano, Yolo, Lake and Colusa Counties.
Cecilia’s passion and appreciation for agriculture started when the family moved to Winters when she was
three years old. By 10 years old, she was working farming jobs around Winters.
At 14, Cecilia’s family bought its own small farm. Today, along with her three brothers, she is a co-owner of the
family’s 80 acre walnut farm.
After graduating from local schools, Cecilia earned degrees in business administration and accounting from
San Jose State University. Her education and experience, coupled with her passion for agriculture and open
space, inspired her to launch a consulting firm specializing in water use, community outreach, and public policy.
In addition to her work, Cecilia is a non-stop volunteer. Her activities include serving on the Board of Directors
for the Sacramento Council of Governments, as Chair of the Yolo Housing Commission, Vice Chair of the Yolo
County Water Association, and on many other local and regional committees.
As Mayor, Cecilia’s been working to bring an agricultural innovation hub to western Yolo County, build a
state of the art senior housing development, secure computers for local schools, and encourage economic
development.
Her leadership helped bring a $75 million PG&E World Class Training Center to Winters - with jobs, job training,
and economic development - and achieve the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument designation that
coordinates agency resources, brings jobs and improves access to the area.
Cecilia’s work on a wide range of issues has earned her broad support and recognition across the district,
including these awards:
“Women Who Mean Business” from the Sacramento Business Journal
“California Emerging Technology Broadband Champion” for her leadership in promoting
improved, affordable broadband access throughout the region
Honored by the Yolo County Women’s History Committee
Winters Chamber of Commerce 2014 “Citizen of the Year”
One of Congressman Garamendi’s “Women of the Year” for 2015
California State Fair “2015 Champion of Technology Award”
Above all, Cecilia is the proud mother of two adult daughters, and has one stepson with her longtime partner.
