Yamil is on the Ballot!

August 25, 2021: City Council Candidate Yamil Hernández has officially qualified to be on the ballot for this fall’s municipal election. With his place on the ballot secure, Yamil is excited to continue running a strong campaign that is built on making Gaithersburg a better place to live for all residents.

This campaign is about teamwork.  Yamil and his team worked hard to successfully qualify for the ballot. They reached out to voters across the city to hear their concerns and share their message. 

Yamil comes from modest beginnings. His parents immigrated from Cuba, and after many years in Puerto Rico, moved to Texas to give their family further opportunities for success. Yamil understood that with hard work, determination, and the support of his community, it was possible to move upwards. After spending his first summer in Texas watching Sesame Street to learn English, Yamil went on to earn several degrees while working multiple jobs to pay for his education. He has lived through and understands the struggle of making every hard earned dollar count.

“With the COVID-19 pandemic still impacting our community, I don’t want individuals to worry about giving money to a political campaign when they may have pressing family needs,  unexpected emergencies, or medical expenses. So after careful consideration, I am not actively soliciting financial contributions. Instead, I am asking for your volunteerism, your support, and most importantly, your vote. I am an independent voice who is not influenced by campaign contributions.” 

 

Yamil Hernández is the co-founder of a successful life sciences company, son of immigrants, former Officer in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserves, and an active citizen in his community. He has lived his life around a core value of service, always ready to collaborate with others to identify and solve complex problems. Living in the Kentlands with his wife Lismarie and pup Albus, Yamil is the Chair of the Kentlands Citizens Assembly (KCA), a member of the City’s Animal Control Board, and a member of the Upcounty’s Citizens Advisory Board (UCAB). He holds a B.S., M.S., and an M.B.A.

Yamil previously launched his campaign with an event in late July. Since then, he has continued to be involved in his community by meeting with fellow residents, attending events, knocking on doors, and spreading his vision for a Gaithersburg that works for everyone.
