About Michael Ceraso.
Hello! My name is Michael Ceraso and I am a candidate for Claremont City Council District 5.
I was raised by a single mother in West Covina who struggled with mental illness and drug addiction, which taught me to empathize with others, and to meet people where they are in their own lives. After my mother passed in 2007, I used the inheritance she left me to volunteer in Iowa for then Senator Barack Obama — an experience that started my career as a community organizer and communications strategist.
