The time of campaigns is over! Promises were exchanged between the people and the candidates for the Pinole City Council, and on November 6th the people spoke. Anthony L Tave, Vincent Salimi, and Norma Martinez-Rubin are Pinole’s newly elected city council members.

Tave and Salimi campaigned extra hard in this election! They joined forces and went from door to door, talking to people, listening to their needs, and helping with finding solutions.

Salimi pushed for the reopening of Fire Station 74, which he viewed as an essential step for public safety. Hopefully, a success will come from this and Pinole will no longer be short-staffed and get to emergencies quick enough.

The last candidate who won her seat in the Pinole City Council,  Rubin, put the community’s needs and wants before politics. She campaigned extremely hard as well.

Congratulations to all of the candidates! Spartan Ink hopes that Pinole will be in great hands and prosper for years to come under this new leadership!

Before the election, Spartan Ink endorsed Rafael Menis, a graduate of the University of Chicago. Sadly, he lost the race but it is not the end of him. His bright ideas are well needed in this town, and we hope that we all soon realize that.
