Hundreds of Supporters Rally For Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack
Marisela Garcia Phd,
La Prensa Hispana
Hundreds of supporters showed up at the Empire Polo Club this week to show support for Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack. All speakers enthusiastically supported her re-election.
Individuals who have known Congresswoman Mack since before she became a Congresswoman spoke highly of her dedication to community. Many false claims by the opposition were discredited including her lack of involvment with the Latino community.
Al Vasquez, Chairman of California Hispanic Media, Inc, and founder of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce-Coachella Valley informed the public of the fact Mary Bono Mack was endorsed by the only bilingual newspaper in the Coachella Valley, La Prensa Hispana and also by the only Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in the Coachella Valley. He sighted statistics whereby Congresswoman Mack had been an integral part of the Latino community since 1998. As opposed to Assemblyman Perez and candidate Ruiz who have not even contacted these major Latino entities since 2008. “ I do not know whether it is out of arrogance, conceit or ignorance that they believe the Latino community does not notice their game of ignoring Latinos after the election, but, I give great credit to Congresswoman Mary Bono who has supported us since she was first elected in 1998 on a continual basis”.
