Hundreds of Volunteers Hit Streets of Norwalk on Behalf of Councilman Mendez Reelection

By Brian Hews

A literal “sea of volunteers” and supporters of Norwalk City Councilman Mike Mendez hit the streets in the Keystone city this past weekend in pursuit of picking up votes from the nearly 40,000 registered voters that will determine the upcoming March 5 election.

Donned in dark blue and neon orange t-shirts with a “Mendez for City Council” logo splashed across their chests, walkers visited thousands of homes this past Saturday on behalf of the lifelong resident.

“Thanks for coming out today and helping me and our campaign talk to the residents of Norwalk,” Mendez said at a post campaign barbeque at Keystone Auto Center on Firestone Boulevard.

Several local elected officials also rolled up their sleeves and threw on their sneakers to talk to voters in Norwalk including several members of the Little Lake City School District Board of Education.

“We need to get Mike Mendez reelected, and today you can see that the community of Norwalk truly cares about where this city should be headed,” said Little Lake School Board Member George Buchanan.

“Listen, Councilman Mendez has been here for our children for generations, and today we are working hard to tell the people that they need to vote to keep Mike in office for four more years,” said Hilda Zamora, who is the current President of the Little Lake City School Board of Education.

Also attending the event was Cerritos College Trustee Bob Arthur and his wife Sue.  Bob Arthur, who is also a former Norwalk City Councilman and Mayor, said that he is supporting Mendez and challenger Enrique Aranda in this current campaign.  “This election is important for the future of Norwalk,” Bob Arthur said.

Norwalk City Councilman Luigi Vernola, a staunch ally of Mendez hosted the post campaign walk barbeque.  “This campaign is very important, and Mike has always placed the needs of the residents first and foremost,” Vernola said.
