Again as an independent candidate for Mayor I present to you a full slate of six independent candidates for councilors. This country has never had a full slate of independent. We had come together by faith. We have four of us who had served our country well. We have two who are hard working, law abiding citizens and a female who is a daughter, a mother, a sister and who loves her community and is ready to serve you. And here we are we have Francisco Escobar, Jesus Vanegas, John Escobar, Timoteo Vanegas, Linda Lorena and Raymond Anthony Evans. So for change please support us if you really want change. We will be a council for all so don’t be fooled again. May God bless you all and please stay safe and on March 3rd please come out early and cast your vote for independent Team Wade.
