Ramon Segovia started work at 16 years old as a sports coordinator for the Palmview Boys and Girls Club.
Tuesday night, 15 years later, he was named city manager of Palmview, which has about 6,000 residents. Segovia graduated from Mission High School in 2000, but he makes it clear he’s from Palmview. His grandfather, Ramiro Vela, was one of the founders of the community and served as mayor.
“It’s more than a job for me. It’s a part of me, my family, my life,” Segovia said. “We’re a small city with a big heart. We’re growing. We’re trying the best we can.”
