For those of us who live in Supervisor District 3, we are fortunate to have so many choices of individuals who would like to represent us. Anyone willing to undertake this tremendously time consuming task deserves our thanks. However, there is only one candidate who has the expertise as a current member of a governing body of a California city and that candidate is Geoff Dale. It is not the size of the war chest or the number of campaign signs plastered all over town that should be the deciding factor.

Ella explica los puntos a favor y en contra: Entre las ventajas están: - Usted podrá aprovechar las ofertas de la tienda e ir pagando poco a poco su mercancía.  - Podrá pagar por la mercancía que puso en apartado en determinado plazo, y no tiene que hacer la compra con cargo a su tarjeta de crédito; así se evita el pago de intereses.

BRAWLEY - City officials expressed mixed feelings about a halfway house for federal prison inmates scheduled to open within the next few months. The residential re-entry center has been contracted to provide housing for about two dozen inmates as they seek to transition back into society. The federal Bureau of Prisons decided on establishing an RRC in the Valley some three years ago, said an official with the company contracted to run the facility, Anaheim-based Working Alternatives Inc.

CALEXICO - The Calexico police union has issued a vote of no confidence against its police chief, alleging he has shown inefficiency to lead, and requests new leadership. A letter detailing the reasoning behind the vote by the Calexico Police Officers' Association against Police Chief Jim Neujahr is dated Jan. 2 and was distributed to City Manager Oscar Rodriquez as well as the City Council earlier this month. “Chief Neujahr's lack of leadership and poor decision-making skills has created a Police Department where morale is low and there is a perception of never-ending favoritism and no future even though there is unyielding work and dedication,” the letter writes.
