Dan Flores is a lifelong resident of the Fifth District with deep ties to the community.
His grandfather, Toby Flores, immigrated to California during World War II as a bracero and opened a small store named Toby’s Market in the predominately-Hispanic community of South Colton.
Dan’s father worked for Stater Bros. for 42 years as a truck driver, and his mother retired from the County of San Bernardino after 20 years of dedicated service.
Growing up in a working-class family, Dan learned the values of hard work, education, and the importance of family. In 2012, Dan was elected to the School Board for the Colton Joint Unified School District. As a school board member, he has fought to ensure that every student in the district has access to a good education. As School Board President, he helped deliver improvements to school facilities across the district and established professional pathways for college and technical training. He was instrumental in the establishment of an agreement between the school district and the California University of Science and Medicine that gives school district graduates preferential admission to the medical school.
Dan currently serves as the Chief of Staff for Fifth District Supervisor Josie Gonzales. He has 15 years of experience with the County and has helped develop new housing for seniors and families in the Fifth District, as well as the Bloomington Library and the Baker Family Learning Center in Muscoy.
Dan resides in Colton with his wife, Abby, and their three children. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University, a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School, and a Master of Public Administration from The University of Southern California.
