SAN DIEGO — Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Escondido, invited longtime Calexican Dora Mendivil to participate in the upcoming National Hispanic Leadership Summit.
Mendivil is the director of San Diego's Center for Employment Training. According to her Imperial Valley colleagues, she lived in Calexico for 30 years before moving to San Diego.
The summit, open only to participants nominated by members of Congress, will be this fall.
Cunningham said he chose Mendivil for her "continued commitment to providing the Hispanic community with visibility and a strong voice in our country's affairs."
