"Voice of the People": Lupita Rios a victim? Be serious. Where have you been for the past two years?
Marlene, perhaps before you called Ms. Rios the heroine of the Hispanic community, you should have conducted a survey in the Hispanic community of the Housing Authority as well as in the rest of our community.
It's interesting to see and listen to everyone's opinion about what is happening at the Calexico Housing Authority. If Ms. Rios comes from a low-income family and has suffered and struggled to get where she is, at this time she sure does not show any sensitivity but displays her very strong character when she tells a young mother and her children to leave their house because her husband is an employee of the authority and regardless of the abuse he gives his family she will always support him.
The real problem is that "yes," Ms. Rios is not a people's person and she does not identify with most of the residents and their needs. She refuses to work with them to better their quality of life, and while she had the majority of the board support, she knew she could do anything because their support was unconditional.
