Togetherfor Bakersfield

I'm Manpreet Kaur, a proud life-long resident of Ward 7, and I'm running to be your next City Council Member. Come and join us, sign-up for updates:


Why I'm Running

I’m a homegrown advocate. Community work isn’t new to me, it’s true to me.

Born and raised in Bakersfield, I’m proud to call Ward 7 my home. I’m the daughter of immigrants, raised by my grandmother. I learned resilience through my parents' work as a truck driver and postal mail carrier. I’ve been involved in policy work locally, statewide, and nationally to redefine what is possible through dedicated collaboration. I understand the trends and possibilities for our ward and city. I am a fierce believer that our deepest challenges can be solved through building community.

Now, I’m ready to represent my neighbors at the city level to ensure Ward 7’s residents have one of their own to listen and serve.
