Cordova says she would listen to residents' problems
Editor's note: Four candidates for San Luis city council are profiled below. Profiles of four other candidates appeared in Saturday's edition of The Sun.
SAN LUIS, Ariz. - Fatima Cordova says she is a good listener and would listen to San Luis residents' concerns if she is elected as a city council member.
'I like to listen to people and the problems they have,' Cordova said. "It's just me. I like to help people. My parents were like that. If someone needed help, they'd help them.'
Helping other people is about doing what one can and using the resources within his or her grasp, she said.
She said one area she has helped people is through providing food to the needy through the local food bank.
As a case manager for The Excel Group in Yuma, Cordova said she works with children who have been in trouble, and she listens to their problems.
Cordova said she sees many problems in San Luis with the young, and she thinks if the city had more activities for them, some of the problems - like graffiti and gangs - would diminish.
Cordova represents San Luis on the Yuma County Free Library District Board of Directors, and she said one improvement the library needs is more computers for students to do research and to print papers for homework.
Cordova is 24 years old and has lived in San Luis for two years. She is single and has no children. She grew up in Gadsden and now lives in San Luis because she said she feels the city is peaceful.
