City Council District 2 Candidates Face Off in Debate

Local issues were the topic of debate Monday night for the three men vying for the City Council District 2 seat.

Most importantly, the candidates talked about growth and development for the district. 

"The big project that I'm looking into is right there where those two baseball fields are at. That is 77 acres of city property which is under recreational. We can put those soccer fields there, and basketball courts and maybe a center," District 2 candidate Gilbert Salinas said.

"We've got two new apartment complexes that (have) been built. One (is at the) 1500 Block of Cornell. (And) we got rid of the eyesore - the old Green Fair (Manor), and we got new apartments that are being built there," District 2 incumbent Floyd Price said.

"I believe that District 2 has been neglected for a long time, and I'm not the only person who believes that, " candidate Armando Gonzales said.  

All the candidates have said the major issues facing District 2 are: economic development, infrastructure, crime and education. They each have different proposals for addressing the issues.
