A message from the office of Louis Fuentes Imperial County Supervisor District 1-Calexico

“I was glad I was able to assist the citizens of Calexico and all agencies in this time of crisis.  From the moment the quake hit, I was on the phone with Governor Schwarzenegger’s office briefing them on the damage and requesting assistance.  I wanted him to see firsthand what has occurred in the District and City I represent and to get a full briefing on the situation around the County.  Many thanks to the strike teams and Emergency operations personnel that mobilized quickly Fire Chiefs, Police Chiefs, Planning and Building Inspectors, Staff at all levels for the daily briefings and assessments.  I will continue to work in helping draw down as much funds as we can from the State and the Federal Government for our Schools which also have been damaged substantially.  In the coming months, I ask for your support so that we may continue with this recovery and rebuild our great City of Calexico.
