I attended the special Board of Commissioners meeting for the Calexico Housing Authority on March 29. I wish that the Calexico City Council had been present so they could see firsthand the professional attitude of Mr. John Romo, chairman of the board.
It is sad to say but Mr. Romo had to take three 10- to 15-minute recesses to compose himself because he could not keep himself under control.
I personally questioned Mr. Romo's comments in your newspaper regarding the validity of the Calexico Resident Council. In his statement Mr. Romo says our council is not recognized by either HUD or the authority. We asked the board the reason for this sudden change.
When we questioned him regarding the time he had served on the Resident Council and we pointed out he had been the sole resident of the council, he became hysterical, abusive and disrespectful. When he was trying to manipulate this council a few months earlier all he could tell us was how much power the council had and kept encouraging the council to demand their rights.
