As the political director at COPS Legal, LLC, Gonzalez specializes in PAC Development and management, coalition building, campaign and issue management, creative development and strategic planning.

Araceli Gonzalez-Burkle is an American of Mexican descent. Her father immigrated to the United States in 1963 and as a worker in the Anaheim Orange Groves he taught his family the value of a strong work ethic and the importance of helping those in need.  Her political career began at the young age of 16 as Co-Chair of Junior LULAC in the City of Bell.  At the age of 19 she was appointed to the Planning Commission for the City of Cudahy, where she served 8 years.

She was the first and youngest Latina woman elected to the Cudahy City Council in 1997 and served one term as Mayor Pro-Tempore and councilmember.

The book, “Power Mentoring: How Successful Mentors and Protégés Get the Most out of Their Relationships" co-authored by Ellen Ensher with Claremont faculty member Susan Murphy, in 2005, identifies and highlights Araceli Gonzalez as a protégé and discusses her mentorship relationship with former U.S. Treasurer, Rosario Marin.

As a delegate with the American Council of Young Political Leaders, a program that encourages foreign diplomacy and mutual understanding between cultures in other countries, she represented the United States abroad in Argentina and Uruguay in 2006, exchanging ideas with other young leaders for economic, political and social progress.

In March 2007, Gonzalez was appointed deputy district director and community liaison for the Los Angeles field office for the Office of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Previously, she was Planning Assistant for community development for the City of La Habra Heights and owner of AG Business Services from 2000 to 2005, where she worked as a public affairs consultant for Tashiro Choi and Associates and Human Resource Consultant with Lulu’s Dessert Corporation. Additionally, Gonzalez is co-founder and charter board member of both the National Latina Business Women Association in Los Angeles and Orange County.

Gonzalez served a successful term as Deputy Coalitions Director for the Meg Whitman for Governor campaign from 2009 to 2010, when Whitman became the Republican nominee for Governor of California.  She was responsible for statewide ethnic coalition building, event planning, recruiting and training volunteer leaders and developing the coalition handbooks and the Latinos for Meg Toolkit for volunteer participation on the campaign. While at the Meg Whitman for Governor campaign, she was responsible for major statewide coalition building efforts and coordinating message development for pro-business and public safety/police issues.  She continues to work with federal, state and local candidates, public safety and pro-business groups.

Gonzalez lives in Upland and enjoys cycling, fishing, hiking and many outdoor activities with her husband Scott Burkle.

Araceli Gonzalez has always believed that staying connected beyond the walls of our homes is essential, that with hard work anything is possible, perseverance moves us forward, and faith and service to community helps our neighborhoods flourish.
