Voice: Fellow councilman endorses Carrillo

March 01, 2002

I would like to provide my opinion on who is the most qualified candidate for Supervisor District 1. After serving on the City Council along with Mayor Victor Carrillo for the last six years, I feel obliged to provide an honest opinion on his leadership style and accomplishments.

He has with dynamism worked side by side with senior citizens to improve their quality of life; Carrillo has provided teamwork necessary to move Calexico forward from misdirected policy decisions of the late 1980s and early 1990s. One need not forget the turbulent City Council meetings and the image problems faced by our city at that time.

Since 1996 I have had the privilege to be your public representative as a city councilman. I serve with pride and am humbled anytime someone approaches me from within our city to comment on the change in direction that our city has enjoyed the past several years.

The positive change is due to dynamic, positive and ethical leaders like Victor Carrillo. If elected as the new supervisor in District 1, Victor will continue to serve Calexico at a new level by being proactive not reactive to our needs. Just look at his record on the City Council: Nosotros Park, street paving (over 26 miles); new development with the proper requirements being imposed; no backroom deals; etc. I urge you and your family to look at this most unblemished record and vote Victor Carrillo, supervisor, District 1 on March 5.
