Eduardo Cuevas

Eduardo Cuevas is a freelance reporter for San José Spotlight. Like many other Bay Area workers, he commutes from his hometown of Salinas, California, an agricultural hub located just south of Santa Clara County.

His reporting seeks to highlight people actually affected by policy issues, whether that ranges from city, state or federal governance.
