Randall was born and raised in Monterey Park. He attended Repetto Elementary and Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary High School. After graduating from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts degree, he began his career as a non-profit consultant.

Today he works for his alma mater in the UCLA office of Government and Community Relations. In 2015 Randall was appointed by Mayor Teresa Real Sebastian to the Recreation and Parks Commission and currently serves as Chairman. He has also served in leadership of both the Monterey Park Chamber of Commerce and the East Los Angeles Pregnancy Center.

In 2017 Randall was a candidate for Monterey Park City Council. As one of the youngest candidates in the city’s history, he ran an impressive campaign earning endorsements from 5 former Mayors and 16% of the votes in a field of six candidates including two incumbents.

Randall’s roots in Monterey Park run deep. In 1968 his grandparents bought their first home and raised Randall’s mother and uncles in the city. His parents Gilbert and Charlene raised all four of their children – Vanessa, Randall, Jacob and James in Monterey Park. All four attended Repetto Elementary and Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary High School. His nephews, Moises and Logan are also being raised in the city and attend local schools.

Growing up in Monterey Park meant Randall was raised with the spirit of community service. This spirit led Randall to dedicate his time and talents to serving his community.

Under Randall’s leadership as Chairman of the Monterey Park Recreation and Parks Commission was the most active in recent memory. Randall personally developed and created the Monterey Park Youth Leadership Academy – teaching local high school students how to be effective civic and community leaders and how to solve public policy issues. Other accomplishments during Randall’s term include Movies in the Park, park beautification projects, special meetings at Langley Senior Center and Los Angeles County’s largest parks needs assessment town hall.

At the age of 20, Randall earned an appointment to the Board of Directors of the East Los Angeles Pregnancy Center, a Monterey Park based non-profit organization serving low income mothers and children in the community. He was quickly elected as Vice-President of the organization by his colleagues, raised over $150,000 in charitable contributions and employed six individuals. His proudest accomplishment was creating the Opportunity Project which partnered with local businesses, government agencies and community organizations to provide expecting mothers assistance with employment opportunities, enrollment in community college/vocational training and parenting classes.

Additionally he served as Vice-President of the Monterey Park Chamber of Commerce where he was critical in revitalizing the organization which was facing eviction and default on debt prior to his term. Randall’s community service and accomplishments have been recognized by the Monterey Park City Council, the Los Angeles Archdiocese, UCLA and the Monterey Park LAMP Optimist Club.
