Local candidate

Dear Editor:It is truly a fresh breath of air when a voter can support a longtime neighbor who wants and deserves the opportunity to give back to his community. In this case, I am referring to Alex Saab, running for Downey's 4th City Council district. In short, Alex was raised, attended schools and lived in the 4th district, even while attending law school. He then decided to raise his family and ultimately open a law office in the same district. By the way, if you have not met Alex, I feel confident that when you do, you would find that he is authentic, honest, compassionate, approachable, accountable and a highly-respected business and community leader. I feel Alex is not only a product of the 4th district, but a humble role model from our district. This explains why I proudly support Alex, who is also endorsed by many community leaders, business owners, educators and, most of all, fellow neighbors. A vote for Alex Saab is the beginning of a better quality of life and stronger community. -- Leonard Zuniga, Downey
