County Board meets the new Mexican Consul

(Hector Huerta Nava introduces himself to the County Board of Supervisors)….Huerta went before the Board Tuesday morning.

He told the Supervisors he was the current Consul for the Mexican Consulate in Calexico. He is filling the vacancy left by Gina Cruz Blackledge. Huerta was assigned to the Consulate in Calexico last year. He told the Board he wanted to continue the excellent working relationship developed by Cruz during her tenure as Consul. He considered that an Open Channel of Cooperation. Huerta also said he wanted to expand Consulate services throughout the entire Imperial County, and not just the Calexico area. A first attempt at that is the Mobile Health Unit, which travels around the County giving health information. Huerta said the Mobile Unit would also offer information on other services available at the Consulate in Calexico.
