Jamul Indian Village – February Newsletter
Important Milestone for the Jamul Indian Village
As we get closer to opening Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego this summer, we need your support. Our Tribe recently signed a Fire and Life Safety Agreement with the County of San Diego that will improve services for residents throughout the area. In addition, we negotiated a proposed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with County Staff that will soon be considered by the County Board of Supervisors for approval. We are grateful for the County staff’s work on these negotiations, which resulted in one of the strongest MOU agreements the County has negotiated with any Tribe.

As always, we are extremely thankful for those who have supported and encouraged us through this long yet vital journey. Our Tribe, our families, and future generations are so close to realizing our dream of self-sufficiency. We want you to be a part of this legacy.

Tribal CFO Featured Alumnus of University of San Diego
Tribal Chief Financial Officer, Juan Garcia, carries an important role of advocate on behalf of the Jamul Indian Village. As CFO, he seeks opportunities that provide the Tribe the best chance of financial stability.
In a recent profile by his alma mater, University of San Diego School of Business, Garcia explained he has always been a wiz with numbers. The accounting industry seemed like the perfect fit. Following prior experience in accounting elsewhere, he joined the Tribe in 2014.
“It has been an incredible, yet challenging experience,” said Garcia of his position as CFO. “I have been given the opportunity to create the financial framework to establish and maintain a strong tribal government.”
Garcia does not take this responsibly lightly. Following the opening of the Tribe’s economic development project, Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, he will expand his role to CFO of the Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation.
“As I expand my role, I look forward to reviewing financial data and working with our business partners to develop strong relationships.”
