Calexico Mayor holds a press conference)…Mayor Joong Kim used the event to introduce the new interim City Manager.
The City Council appointed Calexico Public Works Director Nick Fenley to serve as the interim City Manager. The Press Conference was also to announce the Mayors plans to attract outside investment to Calexico. Kim said he and Fenley are preparing informational pamphlets to be sent out. The Mayor said he has already contacted the Garment Association in Los Angeles. He said the Korean/American Association has formed a consortium and they are looking to expand beyond Los Angeles. Kim said they are looking very seriously at El Paso, Texas. The Mayor admitted there were many benefits with moving to El Paso. The one benefit Calexico has is that that all the consortium members want to move to Texas. Kim has invited the consortium to visit Calexico to determine if the border city would fit their needs by being closer to their home base.
