Marnie Mendoza, appointed incumbent and current mayor pro tem, has officially announced that she is running for the two-year seat on the Colfax City Council in the November election. Her No. 1 priority is public safety including fire and policing as well as public works to keep the waste water treatment plant operating as efficiently as possible, a news release said.
“Mendoza has pledged to ensure the city budget is developed wisely and monitored to reduce wasteful expenditures. Your tax dollars must be used as efficiently as possible,” said the release.
She has worked to build a bridge between city hall and the schools and has proposed the development of a Youth Enrichment Center in Colfax to urge more civic involvement by students.
Economic development is important for the future of our city. With a new hotel being proposed it can become an economic driver to increase tourism in our historic city. She is a major proponent of the proposed Chinese railroad worker monument at the Gold Run rest stop and believes the city can prosper from its completion by next year.
