Palmview Leadership is a group of businessman who believe they can get the city’s finances under control while improving the city. None have run for office before.
“The city should be running like business,” said Joe Chapa, the slate’s mayoral candidate. “It takes businessmen to run a business. The other four individuals running for office are not businessman. We are businessmen. You cannot earn $10 and spend $20.”
Meanwhile, Palmview Proud includes two men who’ve already served on the city’s board of aldermen as well as two others who grew up in the area and have helped out in previous elections. They plan to focus on the Boys and Girls Club, infrastructure, public safety and economic development.
