(Calexico has a new Mayor)…The transition was made earlier this week.
Out-going Mayor John Moreno turned the gavel over to Joong Kim. It was the normal rotation for the Calexico City Council but has been met with some controversy. Many residents are skeptical of Kim, others oppose him, but there are several others that say he was elected to the Council and should be treated the same as the other Council members. Kim has been the center of much of the resent conflict in Calexico. Kim has said he was ready to work with the rest of the council for the benefit of the border city.
