SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Robert Rivas (D-Salinas) released the following statement on the tragic passing of Alfred Diaz-Infante, President and CEO of CHISPA, the largest private, nonprofit housing developer based in Monterey County.
“Alfred Diaz-Infante embodied the California Dream and was without question one of Monterey County’s finest leaders ever. The son of farmworkers, Alfred spent his life working to improve the lives of others. His relentless pursuit of safe, decent, affordable housing transformed the lives of thousands of local families. We are all better off for having known him and learned from him. My heart goes out to the Diaz-Infante family and our entire community as we mourn Alfred’s loss. May we all work to live up to his legacy.”
