Hispanic Support Dwindles For Jose Peralta

Remember you heard it here first, Peter Vallone is the new hope for hispanic democrats disenfranchised by Jose Peralta’s vehement support of the seizure of public parkland for private development at FMCP.

For those that may now know, Peter has Spanish roots – just check out the two press releases below.

Time will tell.
