Not to be missed!

Laredo residents’ first chance to see all the mayoral candidates in one room, responding to the same questions, is finally here!

On Monday the 27th, I am asking for you to be in the audience and really thinking about who you want to be your leader – not who gave you the best concert or best food or who you think might be able to employ your sister’s delinquent son.

I applaud the Next Generation Rotary Club for putting this event on, it is NOT easy. My club definitely stays away from organizing anything similar (we are chickens! The hardest workers around but still don’t do political forums). Because it is a Rotary Club, it gives this debate“forum” more credibility. I can trust that they will give everyone equal time and because they are very community focused, I know they will be as fair as possible. Now let’s hope that the candidates are truthful and fair to each other.

The Laredo mayoral candidates in alphabetical order by last name:

Belmares, Gene
Newland, James J.
Ramirez, Juan
Salinas, Raul
Valdez, Jose A.

Don’t depend on the commercials – go out and listen to all candidates and make up your OWN mind.
