Running as a slate called “Palmview 1,” Arlando Nacianceno (Place 1), Jose Luis Perez (Place 3) and Pastor Juan de la Garza (Place 5) have announced their campaign for Palmview City Council.
Their brief announcement states, “You know us…and you know how hard we have worked with you and for you and your family in church, at La Joya ISD, as coaches, volunteer firefighters and Crimestoppers.”
“Safety first” is part of their campaign platform “because a safer Palmview is one with motivated and appreciated police and firefighters.” A safer Palmview is also key to attracting new businesses and new growth, they stated.
Another plank in their platform is “First Rate Infrastructure.” They cite the need for better streets, lighting, drainage, sewers and sanitation.
The third major campaign issue for Palmview 1 is “Putting Children’s Needs First.” They state, “We need a state-of-the-art library and education/social center and improvements, additions and expansion of our Boys and Girls Club.”
