Of the four people running for two four-year slots on the El Centro City Council, two clearly seem most prepared to make the city a better place to live.
Incumbent Cheryl Walker, seeking a second term on the council, has been an aggressive councilwoman who has worked hard to better the city. She has played key parts in actions that have helped clean up the city, including a nuisance abatement law that has resulted in properties with unsightly and unsafe conditions being cleaned. She has helped lead the downtown revitalization project, which has been a success to the degree it has advanced but needs to be taken further. Walker is aware of that and says she is moving in that direction. The city also has an industrial park that has come to full bloom in recent months.
Walker is a spirited, intelligent woman who cares about her community and will fight for it. Those are fine reasons to vote for her.
