What a disappointment in this mayor! And the audacity for him to indirectly blame other city officials is absurd. The mayor has injected himself in the daily operations of the city; hired a city manager (David Valdez) without doing a basic background check; and is very much condescending …

Another wow! Where is the city manager and attorney?? Obviously the Mayor didn’t know and he chalks it up by his emphasis statement: we will learn from our mistakes! How many more “mistakes” or “lessons learned” can we take??

Wow!! Mismanagement at its finest. Kudos for Ms. Martinez for not covering it up. Hope she does not get retaliated against.







Not to mention, stories like this only welcomes a perception of wrong doing. True or not, there are lessons to be learned here on …

Wow! Only is Espanola. Great job Mayor on this wonderful hire. What kind of background check was really done, if any? Here for several months nothing but negative stories have come out of city hall. What’s going on??

The only thing the mayor did here was act as a dictator. Really, Jimenez has been acting in the capacity of Deputy Chief for over a year, and where are the improvements? If you ask me, just from what I have read on both Jimenez and Carlos, they should have been fired. To “John Martinez” s…
