"When late Colton Mayor David Zamora declared a “new beginning” to city politics during his first State of the City address Thursday, July 7, he would not know the impact his legacy would have on the city for years to come"

Of course he didn't know the impact his speech would have for years to come; neither does anyone else. This speech was only two weeks ago! How would we know about his impact for years to come right now? I guess Black Voice News has no editors?

“During his mayoral campaign, some supporters urged him to twist arms and knock heads,” said Colton businessman Jim Dressler, he didn’t and he won."

oh really?
I guess Mr. Dressler didn't pay attention (either that or he doesn't consider non-English speaking citizens to have any rights):



"the impact his legacy would have on the city for years to come."??????

They must mean things like:

"Gonzalez and Avila said city Community Development Director David Zamora, then the head of the redevelopment agency, heard their concerns, yet took the advice of other building consultants. Zamora is married to Councilwoman Sarah Zamora....
Avila said that the redevelopment agency, which David Zamora then headed, "was pushing for this project to be done, all the change requests, under the guise of 'value engineering.' They started out to build a real fancy building, then cut corners at all the wrong places."

Let's not forget the closure of a fire station and the impact service delays will have on the lives of residents.

I had a family member at Colton Palms. Looks like God recalled the mayor before he could cut any more corners.

A memorial service for Colton Mayor David R. Zamora will take place on Friday, July 22, at 11:00 a.m., at Colton First Assembly of God Church, located at 450 W. Citrus Street, at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Citrus Street in Colton. There will be a reception at the church in the Fellowship Hall immediately following the services.
Since David was such a strong supporter of higher education, in lieu of flowers, the Zamora family requests that gifts in memory of David be made to California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB) in support of student scholarships. Checks can be made payable to CSUSB Philanthropic Foundation, 5500 University Parkway, San Bernardino, CA 92407. On memo section of check, please indicate “In Memory of David Zamora.”
