Q. How did you hear about Cityhood and what attracted you to it?

A. I learned about the cityhood movement through friends though I'd been involved with preliminary rumblings since being in Mr. Alberto Palacios' government class as a high school senior when I designed a crude logo and website. My initial attraction was very simply the idea of calling East L.A. a city. I mainly support cityhood as a means to establish a local government by which city codes could be born locally and implemented with residents' close input.
