Welcome to Pedro Marin’s Official Website
Rep. Pedro Marin, since arriving to Georgia in 1995, has been a leader in the state of Georgia. He possesses over 25 years of executive experience in both the private and non-profit sector and as the highest ranking Latino Democrat in Georgia, is committed to being a voice for justice, opportunity, and equality for all people. Pedro Marin is truly a public servant.
Pedro was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico to a family steeped in Puerto Rican politics. While working for Persol, North America, in San Juan, he transferred with his company to Georgia. Upon arriving to Gwinnett County, Pedro immediately recognized the need to build relationships with community and government leaders due to the emergence of a growing Latino community in the metro Atlanta area.
Pedro is a long time supporter of the Boy Scouts of America; receiving numerous awards for diversifying troops with young Latino males. As well, Pedro has facilitated countless intercultural relation programs to educate people about Latinos. His work in that regard has been critical in discrediting stereotypes, erasing ignorance, and easing tensions which arise when people are adverse to change. Pedro has also led numerous community organizing efforts to register voters, protect Latinos from unfair treatment, and raise awareness about health disparities. Yet, he is best known for working behind the scenes to improve relations between Gwinnett County government and the Latino community by serving as an advisor and intermediary. Due to his history of being a community organizer and leader, Pedro was identified by Democratic Party leaders as a viable candidate for elected office.
