Meet Gina Roletto
I find myself on a path of servant leadership and want to stay on this path as your next City Council member. Born to a working class family, my mother from Mexico who came to study here and a father from a migrant farm worker family who came to the northwest via Texas, served in Vietnam and was a postal worker for over 30 years. I was raised in a town in central Washington, much like Hillsboro where my family volunteered our time in various areas of our community.
As a resident of Hillsboro for over 20 years, I have worked as an educator here in the amazing Hillsboro School District in various positions including classroom teacher at the K-6 level, coordinated Migrant Summer School and helped open South Meadows Middle School as the Dean of Students. Most importantly, I am raising my family here.
As a Latina woman, I borrow from my lived experiences and champion for others and their success through mentorship. I plan to use my experiences as a Council member to bring more residents into the process to help shape our community.
Currently as a school administrator in Portland Public Schools, my work has recently included establishing partnerships with schools and community organizations as well as leading collaborative efforts to cultivate relationships with marginalized portions of the community. These relationships and our leadership were tested as we faced COVID and had to lead a staff and community through the challenge of Distance Learning. Our staff and community persevered and we made it through with so much growth and compassion.
I hold a B.A. and M.A.T. from the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington
and two educational endorsements through Lewis and Clark College.
I live in historic Hillsboro, Oregon with my husband Cory (WEO Media) and our three sons, Anthony (19), Michael (15) and Matthew (10).
