This is a photo of newly elected Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council President Jose Aguilar.
Jose is a friend, and a good man. I'm glad to see him getting recognition from his community.
He is an independent thinker, and he respects the rule of law.
Jose was involved in a very close election for this post, and I am certain that if he had lost, he would have congratulated his opponent and stepped aside.
I guarantee you that he would never come storming into a meeting six months later and demand to vote out every officer that had been previously elected.
That would be weird. Jose would never do that.
He is a man of courage and character.
Congratulations to Jose Aguilar!
