On July 28, El Mexicano newspaper hosted a town hall meeting at Fairfield Manor moderated by Max Montesino.

The meeting opened with Jack Morris, chairman of the Allen County Democratic Party, discussing the importance of getting more Democrats a seat on the Allen County’s Council. He also mentioned Sharon Tucker and her current role on the council. The meeting was held to introduce Palermo Galindo, a political candidate currently running for a seat on the Allen County Council.

The council’s job is to approve the county’s annual tax levy and also to help establish an annual budget for county government.

The meeting had several talking points and was split up into different sections such as how the Latino community can help Galindo win the seat and what the candidate’s plans are for working with the Latino community.

During the meeting, Galindo discussed why he is running by saying, “ I am a believer of strong family core values and very passionate about having the best quality of life in all communities throughout Allen County. Throughout my life and career, I have always been a problemsolver and a community connector. I am a servant leader who is always looking for the most efficient way to solve challenges and coordinate projects in which these stay within budget parameters to ultimately enhance the quality of life of all residents.”

The meeting also focused on how to get more Latinos out and voting for local elections as well.
