(Victorville)– Freshmen council members Jim Kennedy and Angella Valles were welcomed into the City Council dais and each one took an opportunity to make a statement.
In front of a packed house and with many of their supporters in the audience, both Kennedy and Valles made their intentions known by statements.
Kennedy called for unity in this new council and joked at the expense of outgoing-council member Terry Caldwell’s exit. “It was about time for Terry Caldwell to step out and make room for a younger person,” Kennedy said causing for many laughs.
Kennedy took a serious tone and said that in this, the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, there should be complete unity among the new council to move forward in these difficult times.
Valles stated “I can promise you that I will bring back integrity honesty and transparency to this council.”
