Now that Gorena's name is out there with the Lewisville Leader story, I will say that I spoke to Mr. Gorena last Wednesday, and he is considering running for the council seat.
Regarding the "Hispanic-hating": While I personally find it hard to understand how someone can spend so much energy on the one topic of immigration, I don't think its so much a matter of "Hispanic Hating". Gorena is Hispanic. I think maybe it's more of a class thing.
I will also say that aside from Gorena shooting me when I was in Citizen's Police Academy, and occasionally heckling me at Council meetings, on a personal level he really seems like a decent guy. I just don't think I could ever vote for him, knowing that he would drag our city through that whole immigration debate again.
I wish Congress would put a ton of money in the Stimulus Plan for border and immigration enforcement. Then the issue would become a moot point for our city.
