Protecting Chula Vista

Marco Verdugo is the son of Mexican immigrants, an accomplished Deputy City Attorney, a community volunteer, a devoted husband, and a loving father. Now, Marco is running for Chula Vista City Attorney to keep housing affordable, stop gun violence in its tracks, and ensure our city laws truly reflect the values of our diverse community.


Marco's vast experience is not just professional but also deeply personal. He interned for the Chula Vista City Attorney’s Office in law school and then worked as a public agency attorney. He has worked as a Deputy City Attorney for the City of San Diego and currently serves as Deputy City Attorney for Solana Beach and Coronado. His vast experience has given him a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing Chula Vista. Marco's approach is always holistic, blending his legal expertise with a deep understanding of the community's needs. He believes in a proactive legal approach, anticipating challenges, and crafting strategies that benefit both the city and its residents.


Throughout his legal career, Marco has been a trusted leader who City officials turn to when drafting and revising city ordinances, putting his years of expertise and training to work for the people. But Marco's dedication to justice has never been limited to his 9 to 5. He’s provided pro bono legal assistance to low-income individuals and volunteered at Casa Cornelia to help refugees and asylum seekers. There, he’s made sure that everyone—no matter who they are—has a fair trial and a chance at the American Dream.

Marco lives in East Chula Vista with his wife and their three children, who proudly attend Chula Vista's public schools. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from San Diego State University and a law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law.
